    release DVD contents -- now vs. then

    Lucid appeared in April 2010. If I fetch a DVD iso during September (or later) of 2010, do I get different contents?

    Another way to ask this might be: How often do the iso files get "re mastered" (or similar) after a given release enters the wild?

    Merci d'avance,

    I don't know the answer.

    But I do know that I've downloaded releases months after the initial release, but I still have LOTS of updates (including kernel) to do once installed.

    That has always led me to believe they don't change once posted. But I could easily be wrong on that. My experience is just that there is always lots of updating to do even if I install a 6 month old release that I download today.

    The LTS release ISOs get updated every 4-6 months. 10.04.1 is the current release.

    This link shows 8.04 getting a new ISO version every 6 months, so I'd say that we can expect the same for 10.04.
    Thank you for your contributions. "So long and thanks for the fish!"
