Ubuntu team readies for 8.04.1
With Ubuntu 8.04.1 scheduled to be released on July 3 the Ubuntu development team is putting the final touches to the popular Linux distribution. Ubuntu 8.04.1 not a new release of Ubuntu but an updated CD image so that users trying Ubuntu 8.04 for the first time only have to download the CD image and not all the updates that have been released since the original 8.04 release. Those updates are included in the CD image to be released on July 3.
For developers this means that “the hardy-proposed queue is now frozen with respect to packages that are included on any of our ISO images. The only uploads that are being accepted for these packages are those fixing bugs that have already been approved as targets for the 8.04.1 point release,” the team said today.
“Other packages in universe that aren’t included on any ISOs can still have updates prepared, but of course since they aren’t included on ISOs they also don’t have the same deadlines for inclusion, so please understand if these aren’t given the highest priority by the archive admins in the short term.”
