Panel indicators are very handy when it comes to access bold features of application or any standalone indicator which offers various functionality for the desktop to make user experience better. This time I tried to gather all available indicators for 14.04 LTS in one place, so you guys don't have to explore the internet for specific indicator and you can also tell me if I missed any indicator here(Just drop me a line via contact page, I will try to include in the post, if possible).
If you are using Ubuntu 12.04 then you have to checkout this indicators collection post for Ubuntu 12.04 Precise. You can install these indicators in other desktop like Gnome-Classic, Mate, Cinnamon, Xfce and others but I can't say that every indicator will show up in every desktop, so I tested these indicators under Unity desktop. I didn't check these indicators on Linux Mint, hopefully they shall work with Linux Mint 17 without any problem.
Ubuntu is a complete desktop Linux operating system, freely available with both community and professional support. The Ubuntu community is built on the ideas enshrined in the Ubuntu Manifesto: that software should be available free of charge, that software tools should be usable by people in their local language and despite any disabilities, and that people should have the freedom to customise and alter their software in whatever way they see fit. "Ubuntu" is an ancient African word, meaning "humanity to others". The Ubuntu distribution brings the spirit of Ubuntu to the software world.

Ubuntu AIO DVD is an open source and freely distributed software product that provides users with a special distribution of Linux which includes multiple editions of the world's most popular operating system, Ubuntu.
Ubuntu AIO includes all official flavors in one ISO: Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, Kubuntu 14.04 LTS, Ubuntu GNOME 14.04, Xubuntu 14.04 LTS, and Lubuntu 14.04 LTS. You don't have to download every desktop ISO, simply you can burn it on a DVD or on USB and use it.

"The plan is to bring Ubuntu and some of the official derivatives (Kubuntu, Ubuntu Gnome, Xubuntu and Lubuntu) on one iso file that can be burnt on one DVD or USB flash drive. Every one of them can be used as Live system, with no need of installation on hard drive, or can be eventually installed on computer for full Ubuntu or any other system experience."

Antoni Norman has announced the release of Pinguy OS 14.04, an Ubuntu-based desktop Linux distribution with a customized GNOME Shell desktop. This arrives after several "false" releases; yet the release announcement largely concentrates on further bugs and known issues: "The full final has been released. Known bugs: selecting auto login in the installer does not work - I had to disable it so the live session would auto login; Apturl is broken, this is an issue with Ubuntu; to make the distro work with GNOME 3.12 I had to add restore extensions to start-ups - this forces the extensions to start; if you use symbols in your password make sure you pick the correct keyboard; in Firefox some of the add-ons are disabled, just run add-on update to enable them."

Ubuntu team has announced that the availability of the final version of Ubuntu 14.04, code name "Trusty Tahr": "The Ubuntu team is pleased to announce the final release of Ubuntu 14.04 LTS Desktop, Server, Cloud, and Core products. This release includes images from not only the Ubuntu Desktop, Server, Cloud, and Core products, but also the Edubuntu, Kubuntu, Lubuntu, Ubuntu GNOME, UbuntuKylin, Ubuntu Studio and Xubuntu flavours. In addition to the above flavours, it's expected that, despite missing the final, Mythbuntu will be participating in the final release. This is a very exciting LTS (Long Term Support) release for Ubuntu's family of community flavors, as this is the first time that all of our flavors have applied and been approved for LTS status, some for the same five years as Ubuntu itself, and some for a shorter period of three years. This will be highlighted on a per-flavor basis in the final release announcement." Read the full release announcement and the release notes for more information and useful links.

Mark Shuttleworth announced on 31 October 2011 that by Ubuntu 14.04, Ubuntu will support smartphones, tablets, TVs and smart screens. On 18 October 2013, it was announced that next version of Ubuntu 14.04 code name "Trusty Tahr" will be LTS (Long Term Support) and will get support till April 2019.

Mark Shuttleworth said in his blog:
"So our titular totem, our tamper-proof taboo, our tranquil memento of mission and dues, our topical target of both cry and hue, the name for our LTS thoughtful and true: I give you, as Seuss would, with hullabaloo, the temperate and thrifty, the talented and tactful but ultimately, and tellingly, trusty tahr,"
This version is scheduled for release on 17 April 2014. Shuttleworth indicated that the focus in this development cycle will be a release that is characterized by "performance, refinement, maintainability, technical debt" and encouraged the developers to make "conservative choices".
