The Ubuntu team is pleased to announce the release of Ubuntu 16.04.2 LTS
(Long-Term Support) for its Desktop, Server, and Cloud products, as well
as other flavours of Ubuntu with long-term support.

Like previous LTS series', 16.04.2 includes hardware enablement stacks
for use on newer hardware. This support is offered on all architectures
except for 32-bit powerpc, and is installed by default when using one of
the desktop images. Ubuntu Server defaults to installing the GA kernel,
however you may select the HWE kernel from the installer bootloader.

As usual, this point release includes many updates, and updated
installation media has been provided so that fewer updates will need to
be downloaded after installation. These include security updates and
corrections for other high-impact bugs, with a focus on maintaining
stability and compatibility with Ubuntu 16.04 LTS.

Kubuntu 16.04.2 LTS, Xubuntu 16.04.2 LTS, Mythbuntu 16.04.2 LTS,
Ubuntu GNOME 16.04.2 LTS, Lubuntu 16.04.2 LTS, Ubuntu Kylin 16.04.2 LTS,
Ubuntu MATE 16.04.2 LTS and Ubuntu Studio 16.04.2 LTS are also now
available. More details can be found in their individual release notes:

https://wiki.ubuntu....ficial_flavours

Maintenance updates will be provided for 5 years for Ubuntu Desktop,
Ubuntu Server, Ubuntu Cloud, Ubuntu Base, and Ubuntu Kylin. All the
remaining flavours will be supported for 3 years.
