Ubuntu 14.04.1 LTS rolls the majority of bug fixes, packages, and security updates that have been issued to the OS since its release back in April into one new, easily downloadable image.

This means that those installing from the image do not have to download and install hundreds of additional updates straight after installation. Point releases also feature new and improved support for selected hardware. This helps to ensure that the OS remains as robust and compatible throughout its life cycle as possible.
