August 8th, 2014
  • Edubuntu 12.04.5 LTS contains the kernel and graphics stack of Ubuntu 14.04 LTS (Trusty Tahr).

New in version 12.04.4 LTS (February 6th, 2014)

  • The Edubuntu team is proud to announce the release of Edubuntu 12.04.4. This is the fourth of five LTS point releases for this LTS lifecycle. The point release includes all the bug fixes and improvements that have been applied to Edubuntu 12.04 LTS since it has been released. It also includes updated hardware support and installer fixes. If you have an Edubuntu 12.04 LTS system and have applied all the available updates, then your system will already be on 12.04.4 LTS and there is no need to re-install. For new installations, installing from the updated media is recommended since it will be installable on more systems than before and will require drastically less updates than installing from the original 12.04 LTS media. This release ships with a backported kernel and X stack. This enables users to make use of more recently released hardware. Current users of Edubuntu 12.04 won't be automatically updated to this back-ported stack, you can however manually install the packages as well.
  • Although Edubuntu 10.04 systems will ask for upgrade to 12.04.4, it's not an officially supported upgrade path. Testing however indicated that this usually works if you're ready to make some minor adjustments afterwards. To ensure that the Edubuntu 12.04 LTS series will continue to work on the latest hardware as well as keeping quality high right out of the box, we will release another point release before the next long term support release is made available in 2014. More information is available on the release schedule page on the Ubuntu wiki. The release notes are available from the Ubuntu Wiki. Thanks for your support and interest in Edubuntu!
