I downloaded the 12.04 Beta 2 on the day of launch and have been testing and sending bug reports. I now want to install it on another machine. My question is do I use the original image I downloaded and apply the daily distro updates through Update manager OR do a download a new image (because it now has the distro updates included). To be clear I am asking does the 12.04 Beta 2 ISO get updated on a daily basis?

Here are the daily live images: They are generated daily.

Great, just what I was looking for. I was prepared to do it as Ashu suggested but its makes life easier to download a current ISO – stephenmyall Apr 13 '12 at 11:52

No it does not get updated on a daily basis. Use the one u had downloaded previously and apply the update from updates manager.That should be fine.

The answer is "It doesn't really matter, to me".

sorry, I break into song sometimes

In all seriousness though, while the above answers are correct that you can just download the daily ISO from here, it doesn't really matter. At this point in the game, it's not likely that you'll have a broken installer on a daily ISO, but it could happen in other parts of the development cycle.

Agreed, but Im on a learning curve and really want to understand the process 'during this distro upgrade and get more involved in the community in the future. Just crossing Ts and dotting i's – stephenmyall Apr 13 '12 at 12:01
@StephenMyall No better way to learn than to just do it! That's how I learned everything I know now. – James Apr 13 '12 at 12:05
