Ubuntu 14.04.4 was released today as the newest point release in the Trusty Tahr LTS series.

This latest point release for the Ubuntu 14.04 Long-Term Support release provides new hardware enablement support, various package updates with fixes and other minor alterations, and addresses some security issues.

Adam Conrad wrote in the 14.04.4 announcement, "We have expanded our hardware enablement offering since 12.04, and with 14.04.4, this point release contains an updated kernel and X stack for new installations to support new hardware across all our supported architectures, not just x86. As usual, this point release includes many updates, and updated installation media has been provided so that fewer updates will need to be downloaded after installation. These include security updates and corrections for other high-impact bugs, with a focus on maintaining stability and compatibility with Ubuntu 14.04 LTS."
