    Exclamation Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx LTS delayed?!

    Depends on who you talk to:

    Ubuntu 10.04 Hit By Major Bug; ISOs Now Being Re-Spun
    Just hours ago, however, it's been decided to take the best and safest course of action -- to re-spin the ISOs. However, as it would take two days to re-spin all of the ISOs, which would then push the release into May (Ubuntu 10.05 LTS?), they have decided to just re-spin select ISOs.

    Three hours ago they decided to just re-spin the Ubuntu 32-bit and 64-bit desktop CDs, but then minutes later added Ubuntu 10.04 Netbook Edition to the rebuild list and also the Ubuntu DVD if they have enough time today to re-spin and still push it out to mirrors. The maintainers of Kubuntu, Xubuntu, and the other Ubuntu derivatives are also being notified to find out if they would like to re-spin their ISOs and still can do so today.
    Yet, OMG!Ubuntu says

    Fatal flaw connected to GRUB found at very late notice, never fear!
    "When installing in a dual boot environment, the other operating system will not appear at first in the GRUB menu. Installing the available updates and rebooting will fix this issue."

    Potentially catastrophic to Windows and Mac users who want to install Ubuntu alongside their current OS, thankfully the bug has been fixed in updates and a decision was made to re-spin the ISO images for the Ubuntu desktop edition only to include the updates in time for release. Other variants will get the update in the next day or two (or should already have it).

    I'm not worrying about it. I'll be released when it is released.

    Exactly. I feel that most FOSS projects should follow the "When it's ready" release schedule.

    Not too long ago, Fedora has to push their release date by wha? 2 weeks?! Two days isn't bad at all.

    Messes up my plans, but plans can be changed.

    Good job to everyone working hard to fix the issue. The fix was released, the ISO was built and it's even syncing with the mirrors as we speak. I'm disappointed by the release management team though, I have my doubts on the amount of testing that was done on this... just a few hours between the release of Ubiquity 2.2.24 and the decision to put the ISO in the sync pool. Once again it looks like regression testing is being neglected.
