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.

Improved Privacy Settings are better than previous versions. And I like to have a default data backup tool. Sound menu is also great. Thanks a lot.
Will this version finally work with AMD A6 processors? I had to move over to Mint 11 to get a working Linux install. Mint is nice… but it’s not Ubuntu.
oho no again unity 🙁
The design of this page is terrible. I have to scroll down to view the pictures, then I spent some time finding the “Next” button. Unity, web design, other small and annoying things… Ubuntu is no longer good.
Have updated with better gallary view
Suffer a painful and fiery death in hell, Unity, please!
