| It's official: SELinux is now available in the Ubuntu development ("Hardy
| Heron") distribution. "This is the result of the amazing work of the
| ubuntu-security and ubuntu-hardened teams, as well as the huge contributions
| from the folks at Tresys. (note: SELinux will not be the default, but is
| available as a security option.)" Installing it is a simple apt operation.

| included in the final 8.04 release, which is scheduled for April. Codenamed
| Hardy Heron, Ubuntu 8.04 will be the second long-term support (LTS) release,
| which means that it will be supported on the desktop for three years and on
| the server for five years. * *


Hardy Heron Features

,----[ Quote ]
| The roadmap for hardy heron has a pretty big list of features, most of them,
| although very important, are technical and a bit uninteresting. Some of them
| should have been in Gutsy but couldn't meet the schedule. Hardy Heron is
| going to be a Long Term Support release, so there's also going to be a lot of
| fixes for existing features. So without further ado, the features which I'm *
| anticipating the most are. * *
