Ubuntu 14.04.5 LTS released

The Ubuntu team is pleased to announce the release of Ubuntu 14.04.5 LTS
(Long-Term Support) for its Desktop, Server, Cloud, and Core products,
as well as other flavours of Ubuntu with long-term support.

We have expanded our hardware enablement offering since 12.04, and with
14.04.5, this point release contains an updated kernel and X stack for
new installations to support new hardware across all our supported
architectures, not just x86.

As usual, this point release includes many updates, and updated
installation media has been provided so that fewer updates will need to
be downloaded after installation. These include security updates and
corrections for other high-impact bugs, with a focus on maintaining
stability and compatibility with Ubuntu 14.04 LTS.

Kubuntu 14.04.5 LTS, Edubuntu 14.04.5 LTS, Xubuntu 14.04.5 LTS,
Mythbuntu 14.04.5 LTS, Ubuntu GNOME 14.04.5 LTS, Lubuntu 14.04.5 LTS,
Ubuntu Kylin 14.04.5 LTS, and Ubuntu Studio 14.04.5 LTS are also now
available. More details can be found in their individual release notes:

Maintenance updates will be provided for 5 years for Ubuntu Desktop,
Ubuntu Server, Ubuntu Cloud, Ubuntu Core, Ubuntu Kylin, Edubuntu, and
Kubuntu. All the remaining flavours will be supported for 3 years.

Presumably then, Ubuntu and Debian would align at some point before the next
Ubuntu LTS?

Maybe Luke would know better about Debian/Ubuntu alignment at that point.  It looks like 1.11 is the next LTS and it aligns nicely with 18.04 since it releases in 2017 and is supported into 2020.
