    Robbie Williamson has announced Ubuntu 10.04.1, the first maintenance update to Ubuntu's 10.04 LTS release: "This release includes updated server, desktop, and alternate installation CDs for the i386 and amd64 architectures. This is the first maintenance release of Ubuntu 10.04 LTS, which continues to be supported with maintenance updates and security fixes until April 2013 on desktops and April 2015 on servers. Numerous post-release updates have been integrated, and a number of bugs in the installation system have been corrected. These include security updates and corrections for other high-impact bugs, with a focus on maintaining stability and compatibility with Ubuntu 10.04 LTS."

    Who's running it now? How's you experience compared to 10.04?

    You already have 10.04.1 provided you have done all the updates.

    This "release" is only relevant when doing a fresh install from a new media, for everyone else it's business as usual. 10.4.1 is just an arbitrary snapshot of lucid + regular updates. All it means is there are new install CDs with some bug fixes (for the installer) and all the updates since release already on board.

    I'd guess you are coming from Windows or OS X and are thinking of a service pack or point release. These are "feature releases" and as you know new features often mean bugs and headaches. 10.4.1 is called a maintenance release, the likelihood of encountering any issue is as likely as with any other minor update, i.e. very low.

    10.4 is now simply called 10.4.1 Everyone who installed lucid and updates regularly (which of course you should) is running the latest version.

    I downloaded it to have just in case I need to re-install at sometime. It'll save me a few hundred megabytes of download time. So, it's worth having around.

    BTW, if you want to try a real light on resources Ubuntu 10.04 distro give Peppermint One or Ice a try. It uses Openbox, LXDE, and PCManFM. I replaced pcmanfm with thunar because of auto-play (DVD movies), auto-open (usb drives) problems. After bootup ram usage is hovering around 80 megabytes. My old Sony S360 (1.7 ghz processor...1 gig of ram) is quite snappy.

    Later....

    Essentially, Ubuntu 10.04.1 (as a maintenance release) is what Ubuntu 10.04 should have been - lots of minor bugs introduced in their rush to release on time. I am pleased that the auto-mount feature now works for CDs inserted that brings up the File Manager, and that the crash of serveral routines (gdu monitor and deamon) is now fixed.

    However, the recent kernel security bug fix is not a part of Ubuntu 10.04.1 Live CD .iso file - nor should it have been exepected to be.

    I've always resisted ubuntu. I've always thought of it as too newbie-ish or not a cool, obscure, quirky enough distro. Build your own type of OS' have always been my flavour. Arch, Slackware, Debian, Antix to name just a few.
    I have to say however, that ubuntu has always been brilliant to me whenever i've tried it and this release is just the dogs bollocks I must say. I mean wow, it really is something else. It appears to really agree with my hardware. This old box is purring away like a kitten, even with compiz enabled. Really fast too. Not just app launching but boot and shutdown, web page loading, download speeds the lot. Font rendering is the best i've found. I'm very pleasantly surprised. Being from the UK I like the fact that it has a British developer also. A huge thumbs up here. ubuntu has a lot of fans here at wilders, I think i've just become another.

    It just works.... that's what so great about it. Everything works.... I always have less issues (none really) with Ubuntu as compared to any other. So that's what I go with.

    Agreed. I'm not really an extensive distro hopper, but I've tinkered seriously with Fedora, openSUSE, Arch, and PCLOS so far. And at the end of the day, when you sit back and look at it, it's really hard to beat Ubuntu for day-to-day usage despite whatever flaws it may have.

    I've distro-hopped and tinkered for over two years now and haven't found anything that agrees with my hardware and "just works" as well as ubuntu does. Debian comes close but not close enough. Blimey, I sound like a right fanboy!
