Unofficial "official" quasi Ubuntu 14.04.3 LTS released

I am pleased to announce the release of the unofficial "official" quasi Ubuntu 14.04.3 LTS (Long-Term Support) for Desktop on Intel Z3735F products.

Canonical have expanded their hardware enablement offering since 12.04, but with 14.04.3, this quasi point release holds back the updated kernel and X stack (unfortunately the dynamic kernel modules that support the Intel Z3735F processor are required to be built exclusive to the 3.16 kernel).

As usual, this point release includes many updates, 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 (including Firefox version 39.0.3), with a focus on maintaining stability and compatibility with Ubuntu 14.04 LTS.

As always, upgrades to the latest version of Ubuntu are entirely free of charge.

It is recommended that all users read the 14.04.3 release notes, which document caveats and workarounds for known issues, as well as more in-depth notes on the release itself.  They are available at:
