Dapper Drake update



It looks as though Ubuntu has released the first maintenance release in the Dapper Drake life cycle. So, now 6.06.1 can be downloaded. (In analagous terms this might be considered the first service pack). Many updates have been incorporated into the bootable install cds which should cut the amount of download updates a new install would need right out of the box. http://releases.ubuntu.com/6.06.1/ (Ubuntu), http://releases.ubuntu.com/kubuntu/6.06.1/ (Kubuntu), http://releases.ubuntu.com/edubuntu/6.06.1/ (Edubuntu), http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/xubuntu/releases/6.06.1/release.1/ (Xubuntu).


It’s good to see them providing an updated iso on a regular basis. That will make installs (or rebuilds) a lot easier, there’s nothing quite as frustrating as getting a fresh install and then seeing you need to download another cds worth of updates. (Especially if a system is destined for a non-broadband connection.) Shipit will be updated with new cd images within the month.
