We have been receiving a lot of questions about the support length of Lubuntu 18.04 LTS after @sabdfl@twitter.com announced that Ubuntu 18.04 LTS will be supported for 10 years through @Canonical@twitter.com. This does not change the support length of Lubuntu 18.04, which is supported until April 2021.

The latest release of Calamares, the universal Linux installer, has just hit Lubuntu Disco Dingo Alphas!

Happy New Year!

This will be an exciting year for Lubuntu as we prepare to release 20.04 LTS early next year and continue to polish!

In April, we also see the End of Life for Lubuntu 16.04, our second most recent LTS release.

Any New Years resolutions?
