Ubuntu Releases

Canonical has committed to scheduled Ubuntu releases on a predictable six-month basis. Every fourth release, issued on a two-year basis, receives long-term support (LTS). LTS releases are typically used for commercial or large-scale deployments and the current version is 12.04. Interim OS releases (for example 13.04/13.10) will not be officially certified by Canonical. Enablement of interim releases will be back-ported, and certified on the next LTS point release (for example 12.04.x).

PLEASE NOTE: Minimum support includes all future updates of the indicated release unless a maximum is listed. (Example: Ubuntu 12.04 implies support for Ubuntu 12.xx, unless it's specifically called out in the notes as "not supported with 12.xx")
