If I would like to install 12.04 on September 2012 on several machines, is it possible to get an image with all the latest updates so far, so that I don't have to download and install the updates after installation?

If you are going to install Ubuntu 12.04 in September then you need to Download the Ubuntu 12.04.1 edition (called as Point Release) about to release on 23rd August containing bug fixes and updates integrated till that period.

As far as forward updates are concerned , it depends on Newer version of applications to get released in that time frame , so it would be comparatively less against 12.04.

What's the deal with point releases in LTS versions?
