Ubuntu 12.04 "Precise Pangolin" LTS Distribution Released

26-04-2012, 17:25

At noon today, the Ubuntu team released the new version of Ubuntu:
Ubuntu 12.04 LTS! called: Precise Pangolin

And it is now available at OVH!

This is a "LTS" (Long Term Support) distribution which will be supported for five years until April 2017.

Ubuntu Server 12.04 has packages that are ready to install the latest version of OpenStack ("Essex" version). The integration of JuJu already mentioned in version 11.10 has been deprecated and rounded with some new services (e.g.: CharmStore).

Another novelty is that Precise Pangolin is "MultiArch", i.e.: it is possible to install libraries in 64bit and 32 bit parallel, facilitating, among other things the installation of third party applications that are only available in 32bit. For more information about this feature, you may find the following article interesting:

As always, this is an install with only basic services for SSH and DNS preinstalled. It is available in 32 bit and 64 bit, when ordering the re-installation, and for dedicated servers and VPS.

The new Ubuntu is currently in BETA, please post your comments here.
