La prima versione ufficiale di Ubuntu fu rilasciata nell'ottobre 2004 e fu debitamente chiamata «Version 4.10», così da introdurre il sistema di numerazione "A.MM". Mentre era ancora in sviluppo, «Version 4.10» era affettuosamente conosciuta come «The Warty Warthog», letteralmente "il facocero verrucoso", un nome che ha continuato a vivere ben oltre i consueti limiti temporali dei nomi in codice dei software in fase di sviluppo.

Aggiornamenti di sicurezza importanti per Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin: Unity 2D shared library, Pulse Audio Sound Server, VNC plugin for remmina remote desktop client ed altri.

| No comment
precise-coverSappiamo tutti quanto sia importante mantenere aggiornato il proprio sistema operativo, ma è parimenti esperienza comune che spesso siano proprio gli aggiornamenti a introdurre nuovi bug. Ubuntu segue delle linee guida ben precise per gestire questa situazione.

La chiave di volta dell’intero discorso è che, una volta rilasciata la release, gli aggiornamenti non si fanno affatto, a meno che non riguardino vulnerabilità di sicurezza o bug particolarmente significativi.

Addirittura, nell’ottica di stabilizzare la release, già durante le ultime fasi di sviluppo l’ingresso di nuovi pacchetti dei vari software è sottoposto ad un controllo particolarmente rigido (una fase nota agli sviluppatori come “Feature Freeze”, appunto).

Gli aggiornamenti proposti a continuazione fanno parte del bollettino di sicurezza settimanale rilasciato da Canonical e riguardano in particolare i primi aggiornamenti importanti sulla sicurezza riguardanti la neonata Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin:
  • User-space parser utility for AppArmor.
  • Package management related utility preograms.
  • Adobe Flash Player Plugin Installer.
  • deb package formar runtime library.
  • MySQL database client library.
  • Comple Generic Linux Kernel. 
  • Pulse Audio Sound Server. 
  • VNC plugin for remmina remote desktop client
  • Unity 2D shared library.

User-space parser utility for AppArmor.

    path in the Thunderbird 12 packaging

    (LP: #946232)

PulseAudio, prima chiamato Polypaudio, è un server sonoro per sistemi POSIX e WIN32. È un rimpiazzo perfetto per il server sonoro ESD con latenza, qualità di missaggio/ricampionamento e architettura generale molto migliori.
These are some of PulseAudio's features:
* High quality software mixing of multiple audio streams with support for
more than one sink/source. May be used to combine multiple sound cards
into one (with sample rate adjustment).
* Wide range of supported client libraries. ESD, ALSA, oss, libao and
GStreamer client applications are supported as-is. Native PulseAudio
plug-ins are also available for xmms and mplayer.
* Good low latency behaviour and very accurate latency measurement for
playback and recording. Ability to fully synchronize multiple playback
streams.
* Network transparency, allowing an application to play back or record
audio on a different machine than the one it is running on.
* Extensible plug-in architecture with plug-ins for jackd, multicast-rtp
lirc and avahi, just to name a few. This package contains the daemon and basic module set.
