A little bit later than usual, but here it goes the announcement of
the 12.03 RC images. This time we got a bit delayed because we're
finally generating and maintaining all the kernel packages ourself,
and getting them in sync with Launchpad is something that still needs
some improvement.

This release should be the last one based on Ubuntu Oneiric (and
ARMEL), including the latest XBMC release and the usual kernel and
package updates. From 12.04 on we will be supporting only builds based
on Ubuntu Precise (12.04, ARMHF), so we should see quite many nice
improvements there (for early access, check the builds at

You can find our current test cases at
https://wiki.linaro.org/Platform/QA/TestCases/Ubuntu, and the 12.03 RC
builds (for all boards and image flavors) at
http://snapshots.linaro.org/oneiric/, with build id 20120327-1 for
hwpacks and 20120327-0 for the rootfs (nano, developer, alip,
ubuntu-desktop and linaro-tv-xbmc).

For our main boards we also have a testing spreadsheet, were we
publish the official release testing, done by the dev platform
engineers. You can find the links at
https://wiki.linaro.org/Platform/DevPlatform/Testing (note that you
can find the bug reports from the test cases by looking at the QA page
tag links).

Fathi will be coordinating all respin requests in the next following
days at linaro-release m-l, and the final image will be published this
thursday, at releases.linaro.org.

Please also be sure to publish any bug report with the RC images
against https://launchpad.net/linaro-ubuntu, or just contact us at
#linaro @ freenode.
