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 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,"
