The Ubuntu team is pleased to announce the release of Ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS
(Long-Term Support) for its Desktop, Server, and Cloud products, as well
as other flavours of Ubuntu with long-term support.
Like previous LTS series, 18.04.2 includes hardware enablement stacks
for use on newer hardware. This support is offered on all architectures
and is installed by default when using one of the desktop images.
Ubuntu Server defaults to installing the GA kernel; however you may
select the HWE kernel from the installer bootloader.
This update also adds Raspberry Pi 3 as a supported image target for
Ubuntu Server, alongside the existing Raspberry Pi 2 image.
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 18.04 LTS.
