This is what I've been waiting for the last few months - Ubuntu 8.04 codename Hardy Heron Official Release. It's been a while since the LTS Ubuntu version comes out since Ubuntu 6.06 Dapper Drake. So from the date given on the Ubuntu Website, the release should be on 24th April 2008 and it's today.

Well this is the latest changes I've search on the net for past few days which is the most exciting things to give a try:
- Ubuntu LTS raises the bar on the linux desktop usage/experiences. This LTS version will include the latest stabil core products such as Mozilla Firefox 3(beta 5) which is Ubuntu is the first distribution to include it on an official release.
- It also has enchanced photo experience: F-spot with upgraded camera and phone recognition.
- Music sharing and download.
- Better video. The new Movie Player will have capabilities to browse youtube video on the fingertips and easier to share videos with the rest of the internet users.
- Clock and calendar enchancement to manage time across the globe with a single click to set, attend and receive alerts about appointments.
- Slick desktop: Ubuntu 8.04 LTS combines the latest GNOME applications with desktop visual effects, giving users a smoother, better-looking and more intuitive experience.
So it's a great new release for Ubuntu Linux and I'm eager to be among the first person to have a try on the official release of Ubuntu Hardy Heron. Happy downloading later~!
