About Ubuntu 6.06 LTS
Highlights of this release include:
* New kernels targeted at server platforms. The server kernels are tuned differently than the desktop kernels (providing better performance for server applications).
* Turn-key LAMP installation for this common deployment scenario
* Improved support for clusters and SANs
"Under the hood"
* GCC 4.0.3
* glibc 2.3.6
* Linux kernel 22.214.171.124
* Niagara optimizations for gcc, glibc and kernel available by default
* Greatly improved infrastructure for automatic hardware detection and activation
* The system PATH is now set in exactly one place, /etc/environment, for convenient administration
As always, Ubuntu includes the very best of the 100% Free / Libre application software world, and each new release incorporates countless new features and bugfixes from the global development community. More detailed release notes are at :
