It’s that time of the month again, and there is excitement in the air!
The 2012.04 Ubuntu release leaped to Precise Pangolin distribution, which among other things means the builds are now done for the armhf architecture. This should show up as performance improvements here and there.
For Android Ice Cream Sandwich the 2012.04 release is even more thrilling as multimedia acceleration becomes available. This also means we don’t have the “to be included in future releases” section in the full release notes anymore, as all pending major features are now in place. Of course there is lots of work to do still though…
See also the Linaro release announcement as well.
After a struggle to find an elusive graphics bug, we are now finally able to announce the Ubuntu Desktop release for Snowball, versioned 2012.03.1.
The good news is that we were able to squeeze in an additional audio fix in the list of fixed bugs as well due to the delay.
Other noteworthy fixes include the WiFi and Bluetooth features, though not without few known issues still.
