Ubuntu OTA-12 is being released today by Canonical as the latest over-the-air update for Ubuntu tablet/phone users.

Ubuntu OTA-12 is bringing wireless display support to supported devices, fingerprint unlock for the Meizu PRO 5 device, color emojis for the on-screen keyboard, improvements to the built-in web browser, and through the command-line it's possible to install traditional Ubuntu apps as part of the converged experience. The OTA-12 update does bundle in Libertine.

Some other changes include animated mouse cursors in the convergence area, an on-screen keyboard for X apps, updated core apps, and numerous bug fixes. Some of the browser updates include touch-selection improvements, only loading the current tab when restoring a session, zoom support, and consistent page headers across the UI.

More details on the changes to Ubuntu OTA-12 can be found via the Wiki release notes.
