Another Ubuntu version comingMonday, September 3, 2007 at 20:17 | Posted in linux, ubuntu | 4 Comments
While I am still looking forward to upgrading my Ubuntu 7.04 (Feisty Fawn) to Ubuntu 7.10 (Gutsy Gibbon), expected to be released 18th October, Jono Bacon has already announced the release of the version after Gutsy. It is going to be Ubuntu 8.04 (Hardy Heron). Heron is expected to be ready in April 2008. It is going to be a Long Term Support (LTS) version and will be supported with security updates for five years on the server and three years on the desktop.
Time sure flies fast. The latest LTS is Ubuntu 6.06 (Dapper Drake, supported till 2009) which feels like obsolete already when compared to 7.04 which I have running in my laptop.
