Greg Kroah-Hartman has posted an update
his plans for long-term kernel maintenance. As he announced before, the
3.1 series is almost at the end of its update period; he is also
approaching the end of his maintenance for the long-lived 2.6.32 release.

that Ubuntu will support 2.6.32 through
April 2015 - though whether that support will translate into kernel
releases outside of the Ubuntu distribution is not clear. Ubuntu also
plans to take on 3.2 as a long-term supported kernel.
