Canonical's Robbie Williamson has provided an update on the status of the Ubuntu 10.04.1 LTS release, which is the first re-spin since the Long-Term Support release of the Lucid Lynx in April. Ubuntu 10.04.1 incorporates the package updates and minor fixes committed to Lucid since the original release. Ubuntu 10.04.1 was supposed to be released next week, but now it's been postponed to August.
Details on some of the bugs that are targeted for Ubuntu 10.04.1 can be found on the Launchpad Milestone
. However, as Ubuntu 10.04.1 did not have a full-time release manager, the release has been pushed back from the 29th of July to the 12th of August. This delay provides an extra week to incorporate additional bug-fixes and then another week for testing.
Fortunately, this setback for Ubuntu 10.04.1 will not affect Ubuntu 10.10
, which is scheduled to be released
on the 10th of October.
