Ubuntu 8.04 (Hardy Heron) reaches End of Life on May 9 2013

Recommended Posts

Ubuntu announced its 8.04 (Hardy Heron) release almost 5 years ago,

on April 24, 2008. As with the earlier LTS releases, Ubuntu committed

to ongoing security and critical fixes for a period of 5 years. The

support period is now nearing its end and Ubuntu 8.04 will reach end

of life on Thursday, May 9th. At that time, Ubuntu Security Notices

will no longer include information or updated packages for Ubuntu 8.04.


The supported upgrade path from Ubuntu 8.04 is via Ubuntu 10.04.

Users are encouraged to evaluate and upgrade to our latest 12.04 LTS

release via 10.04. Instructions and caveats for the upgrades may be

found at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/LucidUpgrades and

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/PreciseUpgrades. Ubuntu 10.04 and

12.04 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
