Ubuntu Release History and Dates

This page contains all the Ubuntu release history and dates.

Though there are official pages that consist of Ubuntu releases, dates, EOL, and associated information, however, we list here some more detailed information to help you track updates and progress of this free and open-source operating system.

There are two types of release cadence that supported by Ubuntu – a) Interim release and b) Long Term Support (LTS) release. For all production, cloud, and enterprise deployments it is recommended to use LTS releases which provide stability and security updates for typically 5 years. During LTS releases, Canonical – the organization that drives Ubuntu, release an interim release twice a year to show the upcoming features and capabilities. This interim release provides sufficient time for the developers, enterprises to adapt and be aware of upcoming LTS releases and plan accordingly.
