Ubuntu 20.04.2 LTS released

Lukasz Zemczak-2
The Ubuntu team is pleased to announce the release of Ubuntu 20.04.2 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, 20.04.2 includes hardware enablement stacks
for use on newer hardware.  This support is offered on all architectures.

Ubuntu Server defaults to installing the GA kernel; however you may
select the HWE kernel from the installer bootloader.

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 20.04 LTS.

Kubuntu 20.04.2 LTS, Ubuntu Budgie 20.04.2 LTS, Ubuntu MATE 20.04.2 LTS,
Lubuntu 20.04.2 LTS, Ubuntu Kylin 20.04.2 LTS, Ubuntu Studio 20.04.2 LTS,
and Xubuntu 20.04.2 LTS are also now available. More details can be found
in their individual release notes:

    https://wiki.ubuntu.com/FocalFossa/ReleaseNotes#Official_flavours

Maintenance updates will be provided for 5 years for Ubuntu Desktop,
Ubuntu Server, Ubuntu Cloud, and Ubuntu Core.  All the remaining
flavours will be supported for 3 years. Additional security support is
available with ESM (Extended Security Maintenance).
