Xubuntu is also included, although commercial support for it is not available from Canonical Ltd.
    This is great news! It also saves you a lot of time upgrading on a new installation (especially if you are on a slow internet connection).

    I blogged about this here :

    The release cause quite a stir, specially since there was no official press release yet from Ubuntu. Some thought they need to dist-upgrade or reinstall to get 6.06.1.

    Here's the (probably draft) announcement for the Point Release: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DapperPointOneAnnouncement

    At the Ubuntu Developers Summit there was a BOF scheduled for the planning of the Point Release.

    From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BOF :
    * Birds of a Feather: This idiom is a shortening of the proverb "birds of a feather flock together", meaning that people (birds) of the same kind or interest (of a common feather) enjoy spending time (flocking) together. This proverb is believed to date back as far as Greek and Roman times, but has become commonly used as jargon by various groups since the nineteenth century.

    * The acronym is used by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) to denote initial meetings of members interested in a particular issue. The term is also used by computer science professionals at gatherings such as industry conferences to describe a meeting in which a topic of specific interest is discussed. Such meetings are referred to as Birds-of-a-Feather Meetings, or simply as BoFs.
    When I read on ubuntu-devel (mailinglist) that the Point Release was coming soon I wrote about it here :

    If you kept your system up-to-date then you already have Ubuntu 6.06.1 LTS.

    Ubuntu 6.06.1 LTS has all the updates you have (and they have also fixed some bugs of the Desktop installer)

    If you press Control+Alternate+F1 (Control+Alternate+F7 to get back), you can see if you have 6.06.1 LTS already. You should, as it is just Dapper+updates.

    woot woot!

    Initial 6.06 live cd didn't boot on my main system. I will download this one probably on the weekend and give it a test run.

    Okay, serious noob question here. I ran Update Manager and it says that my system is up to date. However, when I go the <ctrl, alt F1> page it still says 6.06 LTS not the 6.06.1 LTS that I was expecting. Any ideas why? I mean I'm feeling sort of left out here...

    Thanks for your help.

    Someone in another thread suggested running this command:
    lsb_release -a

    to see what version you have.
