Ubuntu 22.04.4 Released with New Arm64 ISO for Machine Learning

The Ubuntu team announced the 4th point release of Ubuntu 22.04 this Thursday!

The new release comes with a new arm64+largemem ISO for ARM servers. The iso includes a kernel with 64k page size, which is typically used for machine learning, databases with many large entries, and high performance computing.
