Ubuntu 6.10 nears end of life
Users of Ubuntu 6.10, the Ubuntu Linux edition released in October 2006, will need to start considering their alternatives with the release coming to the end of its support life in a month’s time. The release, supported for 18 months, will see the end of its support on April 25.
The supported upgrade path from Ubuntu 6.10 is via Ubuntu 7.04. Instructions and caveats for the upgrade may be found at
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/FeistyUpgrades. Note that upgrades to version 7.10 and beyond are only supported in multiple steps, via an upgrade first to 7.04, then to 7.10. Both Ubuntu 7.04 and Ubuntu 7.10 continue to be actively supported with security updates and select high-impact bug fixes. All announcements of official security updates for
Ubuntu releases are sent to the ubuntu-security-announce mailing list, information about which may be found at
