Stà per finire il glorioso ciclo vita di Ubuntu 7.10 Gutsy Gibbon

Stà per finire il glorioso ciclo vita di Ubuntu 7.10 Gutsy Gibbon. Quindi la distribuzione rilasciata da Ubuntu 18 mesi fa, il 18 ottobre 2007, non dovrebbe più ricevere aggiornamenti inerenti il software e la sicurezza a partire dal 18 aprile 2009.

Chiaramente gli utenti di Ubuntu 7.10 sono pregati di migrare verso nuovi e alternativi orizzonti, come Ubuntu 8.10, ma se aspettate ancora qualche giorno passeremo tutti quanti direttamente a Ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty Jackalope. Potete scaricare l'ultima versione beta da questa pagina.

Ecco il comunicato ufficiale:
Ubuntu 7.10 reaches end-of-life on April 18, 2009

Ubuntu announced the release of 7.10 almost 18 months ago, on October 18, 2007. As with the earlier releases, Ubuntu committed to ongoing security and critical fixes for a period of 18 months. The support period is now nearing its end and Ubuntu 7.10 will reach end of life on Saturday, April 18, 2008. At that time, Ubuntu Security Notices will no longer include information or updated packages for Ubuntu 7.10.

The supported upgrade path from Ubuntu 7.10 is via Ubuntu 8.04 LTS. Instructions and caveats for the upgrade may be found at Note that upgrades to version 8.10 and beyond are only supported in multiple steps, via an upgrade first to 8.04 LTS, then to 8.10. Both Ubuntu 8.04 LTS and Ubuntu 8.10 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

Since its launch in October 2004 Ubuntu has become one of the most highly regarded Linux distributions with millions of users in homes, schools, businesses and governments around the world. Ubuntu is Open Source software, costs nothing to download, and users are free to customise or alter their software in order to meet their needs.
