Canonical releases Ubuntu 12.04 LTS Precise Pangolin

Canonical has released desktop and server versions of its Ubuntu 12.04 distribution dubbed Precise Pangolin, which comes with three years of support.

Canonical’s Ubuntu 12.04 is the first long term support (LTS) release in two years and is the first to feature the Unity desktop. Canonical has also introduced a number of cloud specific services in Ubuntu 12.04 server including metal-as-a-service and its recently announced AWSOME APIs.

Canonical has posted a lengthy changelog for Ubuntu 12.04, with the change most visible to end-users being the heads-up display in Unity. Ubuntu 1 12.04 is based on the Linux 3.2.14 kernel and ships with Libreoffice 3.5.2, with Gnome, which is still present despite Unity, also being updated to 3.4.1.

Since Canonical released Ubuntu 10.04 LTS, the firm has increasingly focused on the enterprise and most of the big pre-release announcements surrounding Ubuntu 12.04 LTS were really aimed at the server version of the distribution. Perhaps Canonical’s biggest coup was getting HP to certify Ubuntu 12.04 on some of its Proliant servers, a certification Canonical told us will be a long-term alliance between the two firms.

Canonical is also pushing Ubuntu 12.04 LTS on the ARM architecture, and the firm told The INQUIRER that HP’s ARM-based Moonshot servers will be using Ubuntu. Now ARM has stated it supports Ubuntu with Tom Lantzsch, EVP of corporate development at ARM saying, “ARM welcomes the availability of Ubuntu 12.04 LTS as the first enterprise Linux distribution for ARM technology-based servers. This marks a critical ecosystem milestone on the path to highly efficient hyperscale web, cloud and big data infrastructure enabled by forthcoming ARM powered servers.”

On the desktop Canonical CEO Jane Silber said Dell, HP and Lenovo have certified Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, which could see it finally take on Red Hat Enterprise Linux on both workstation and server fronts. For Canonical, since LTS releases come out only every two years, Ubuntu 12.04 LTS is vital to its continued push into the lucrative enterprise market.
