    Special call for testing NEW Artful spins

    This is a one off thing, and does definitely belong here because Artful had to be respun due to the notorious BIOS bug:

    https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...x/+bug/1734147

    Call for testing here:

    https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/ub...ry/004263.html

    Images are up on the QA Tracker:

    http://iso.qa.ubuntu.com/qatracker/m...nes/385/builds

    I don't have any affected machines but I still may be able to give the installer some testing before release. All flavors should be given a spin around the block to check for any fatal flaws

    Just so people know, currently the tracker points to the wrong place and so the iso's are not downloadable from there.

    They can be found - xubuntu is at http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/xubuntu/ar...-live/current/ for instance

    @Knoob,

    Since it appears that the BIOS bug has migrated to Bionic do you have any idea if the Bionic dailies will be patched also?
    Regards..

    Would the BIOS bug attack the already installed Bionic installs, when upgrading?

    Thanks for the tip, corresponding links work also for other flavours

    The target release date for these updated images is Thursday, January 11.
    So, I am not that sure to download any 17.10 or 18.04 images, until Thursday, January 11.

    That seems to be one of the cases.
