The Ubuntu team is pleased to announce the first beta release of Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (Long-Term Support) Desktop, Server, Cloud, and Core products.

Codenamed “Precise Pangolin”, 12.04 continues Ubuntu’s proud tradition of integrating the latest and greatest open source technologies into a high-quality, easy-to-use Linux distribution. The team has been hard at work throughout this cycle, introducing new features and fixing bugs.

This release introduces a new set of images for the ARMv7 “hard float” ABI, denoted as armhf. There are still some armel images around, as we finish the migration, but 12.04 for ARM will be based on armhf.

The technology that allows GPUs to go into a very low power consumption state when the GPU is idle (RC6) is now enabled by default for Sandy Bridge systems, which should result in considerable power savings when this stage is activated.

    Looks fairly similar to 11.10. I run my laptop on the normal Unity and my desktop with the classic desktop, but it has been buggy and rather painful, hope 12 fixes some of these.

    Do you know if any work has been done in addressing the problems many people had with the Unity desktop, at least giving users a better supported choice (other than switching to something like Linux Mint)?

    Well, it looks like the idea of being able to see what programs are being concurrently run is still considered as “unnecessary”.

    Canonical does so many great things. I am just not to sure about the whole unity move.

    Looking at distro watch it appears I am not the only one feeling that way. Looks like a lot of people have started switching over to Linux Mint.

    I think I will stick with Ubuntu servers for a server because they seem to be making great strides in the back-end of things. Large selections of software in the repos, pretty cutting edge with out being at risk of running unstable.

    Yes, but for #1 only, which unfortunately is in the headline, and coming from a respected source.
