"Dear Ubuntu 8.04 users, Steve Langasek announced a few minutes
ago the fourth maintenance release of the Ubuntu 8.04 LTS (Hardy
Heron) operating system, which (in case you forgot) is supported
with maintenance updates and security fixes until April 2011 on
desktops, and April 2013 on servers. Once again, this new
maintenance release brings to its dedicated users a lot of security
updates and corrections (over 70), all with a single goal: to keep
Ubuntu 8.04 LTS a stable and reliable Linux distribution!
""In all, some 70 updates have been integrated, 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 8.04 LTS." -
Steve Langasek said in the official release announcement."
