Mark Shuttleworth announced on his blog today that the latest Ubuntu release is titled Precise Pangolin. Ubuntu 12.04 will be the next Long Term Service (LTS) version, which has scheduled release date of April 26, 2012. The Desktop will be supported until April of 2015, while the Server release is supported until April 2017. You can view the development cycle freezes and release here.

You can view old Canonical releases at http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/releases/.

There isn’t a great deal of information on the web about what to expect in the v.12.04 release. However, I would simply expect Unity. This page includes a few developer notes for you to chew on.
