The Ubuntu team is proud to announce version 7.04 of the Ubuntu family of distributions.
Ubuntu is a Linux distribution for your desktop or server, with a fast and easy install, regular releases, a tight selection of excellent software installed by default, an incredible variety of add-on software available with a few clicks, and professional technical support from Canonical Limited and hundreds of other companies around the world.
Ubuntu 7.04 is also the basis for new 7.04 releases of Kubuntu and Edubuntu:

Edubuntu announcement http://www.edubuntu.org/news/7.04-release
Ubuntu 7.04 will be supported for 18 months on both desktops and servers. Note that 6.06 LTS is a long-term support release, and so users requiring a longer support lifetime may choose to continue using that version rather than upgrade to or install 7.04.
