The developers have also turned on RC6 power management by default in the beta release. The RC6 technology in Intel's Sandy Bridge processors allows the GPU to go into a low power consumption mode when idle, as low as 0 W, and can result in considerable power savings of 40 to 60 percent. The developers have now switched the default music player to Rhythmbox and included support for the Ubuntu One Music Store within it. Other application updates include moving to the latest version of LibreOffice 3.5 and a beta of Firefox 11.0. Hardware support has also been added for ClickPads. Ubuntu 12.04 will be a Long Term Support (LTS) release that will be supported for five years on both the server edition and, for the first time, the desktop edition.
The current stable release of Ubuntu is 11.10 "Oneiric Ocelot" from October 2011, while the most recent LTS version is Ubuntu 10.04.4 LTS "Lucid Lynx".
