Ubuntu 7.04 LTS released

For users wanting a secure, feature rich alternative to Microsoft Windows, Canonical Ltd., the commercial sponsor of Ubuntu, announced today the Thursday release of Ubuntu version 7.04.
The press releases are found here:


Used by businesses, home users, schools and governments around the world, upgrades to new releases will always be free of charge. Ubuntu 7.04 will be maintained for 18 months on both the desktop and on the server, and additional free support is available from the thriving Ubuntu community. For deployments which require additional service guarantees, full telephone and online support is commercially available globally from the professional support team at Canonical Ltd and service partners.


The Ubuntu team is proud to announce version 7.04 of the Ubuntu family
of distributions.

Ubuntu is a Linux distribution for your desktop or server, with a fast
and easy install, regular releases, a tight selection of excellent
software installed by default, an incredible variety of add-on
software available with a few clicks, and professional technical
support from Canonical Limited and hundreds of other companies around
the world.

Ubuntu 7.04 is also the basis for new 7.04 releases of Kubuntu and Edubuntu:

Ubuntu 7.04 will be supported for 18 months on both desktops and
servers. Note that 6.06 LTS is a long-term support release, and so
users requiring a longer support lifetime may choose to continue using
that version rather than upgrade to or install 7.04.
