In December we reported that Ubuntu (and its community flavours) were removing download links for version 17.10. The installation images were pulled due to a bug which could corrupt the BIOS of certain computers. The issue has since been fixed and the Ubuntu Community Editions have published new ISO files, carrying the version number 17.10.1. The Lubuntu blog states: "Lubuntu 17.10.1 has been released to fix a major problem affecting many Lenovo laptops that causes the computer to have BIOS problems after installing. You can find more details about this problem here. Please note that the Meltdown and Spectre vulnerabilities have not been fixed in this ISO, so we advise that if you install this ISO, update directly after. This release is no different in terms of features from the 17.10 release, and is comparable to an LTS point release in that all updates since the 17.10 release have been rolled into this ISO."
