Canonical is improving Ubuntu Touch with each new version, and now a new release has been made available.

The Ubuntu team promoted a new image for Ubuntu Touch, despite the fact that it's still plagued by a few problems.

“We are promoting image #151. We based the promotion decision on the facts that dogfooding results are as good as the previous promoted image and the online-account settings bug isn't a new bug (after some more testing),” said Didier Roche on the official mailing list.

Also, the QML crash that plagued Ubuntu Touch for a while will be fixed soon, but it wasn't considered a release-stopping problem.

This is where the Canonical automated tests for Ubuntu Touch really made a difference. Users don't get untested images, but this also means that updates will be only released when developers think it's safe to do so.
