Ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS released

The Ubuntu team is pleased to announce the release of Ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS (Long-Term Support) for its Desktop, Server, and Cloud products, as well as other flavours of Ubuntu with long-term support.

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.

https://wiki.ubuntu.com/XenialXerus/ReleaseNotes#Official_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.

Bug 1602344 opened against the CoC for more explicit condemnation of harassment

I just opened a bug to pave our way to amend the CoC so that it gets to be clearly visible we do not accept harassment (and, by consequence, bullying) in any form, for any reason.

This is the sequence from the discussions previously held in this mailing list, and a session on UOS 1605.

Our view is that a small change will suffice. Michael Hall has added the proposed branch to the bug. This, we expect, will precede additional information added around the CoC (but not directly part of the CoC), so that examples and pointers can be given.

Please comment. We need feedback from the community.
