ubuntu 10.04 lucid lynx final

Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx is available for download @ http://releases.ubuntu.com/releases/10.04/.

But you're probably wondering what the word "somewhat" is doing in the title. Well, Phoronix reports that a new critical bug (bug #570765 ) hit Ubuntu today. The bug is that when installing Ubuntu 10.04, if the user had other operating systems installed (it doesn't matter if that's Windows or another Linux distribution), GRUB2 will not detect them. That basically means that with the current ISO, dual boot is not possible.

This comes after another critical bug was reported this week but which presumably has been fixed.

Update: The bug is fixed (fix committed but not yet released) but the new ISOs need rebuilding.

Update 2: Not sure what to believe now. Ubuntu 10.04 is available to download @ Ubuntu website: http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/download and also Ubuntu 10.04 release announcement has been made on the Ubuntu announcements mailing list so it seems they already rebuild the ISO files.
