    Question Ubuntu 14.04 (Trusty Tahr) Daily Build

    Hello,

    I just want to ask a quick question, I'm sorry if this has already been asked and if that's the case just point me in the right direction and close this thread. My question is: If I install Ubuntu 14.04 Daily Build will I have to re-install once the final version is released?

    Thanks in advance.

    No. Keep updating, and you will have the final.

    Hi,

    With Ubuntu 14.04 LTS being released today I just wanted to confirm that the daily build I've been using and updating for around a month will be the exact same as the final? Thanks again.

    If it is not, then ask for your money back.

    Think about it. The final release image of Ubuntu 14.04 is just a daily build. Except for the first few days at the start of the Trusty Tahr development cycle of 26 weeks there have been daily builds of the ISO image. The image that people will be downloading as 14.04 is the final daily build. Development work will now switch to the next release.

    The above comment is true when applied to Interim releases but as 14.04 is an LTS release there is a slight difference. To keep 14.04 up to date with the latest Linux hardware stack there will be another 14.04 ISO image build in six months time - 14.04.1. Over the next two years there will be four builds of the 14.04 image. 14.04.1; 14.04.2; 14.04.3 and 14.04.4. These builds are called "point" releases. Six months later 16.04 LTS will be released.

    And just in case you are wondering, your present install of 14.04 will also be updated with that newer code during the next two years.

    Regards.

    To check run

    Code:
    lsb_release -a
    This is what I get

    No LSB modules are available.
    Distributor ID: Ubuntu
    Description: Ubuntu 14.04 LTS
    Release: 14.04
    Codename: trusty
    In the past the description was "Ubuntu Trusty Tahr (development branch)."

    Regards.
