Ubuntu announced its 12.10 (Quantal Quetzal) release more than 18 months ago, on October 18, 2012. Since changes to the Ubuntu support cycle mean that Ubuntu 13.04 has reached end of life before Ubuntu 12.10, the support cycle for Ubuntu 12.10 has been extended slightly to overlap with the release of Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. This allowing users to move directly from Ubuntu 12.10 to Ubuntu 14.04 LTS (via Ubuntu 13.10). This period of overlap is now coming to a close, and we will be retiring Ubuntu 12.10 on Friday, May 16, 2014. At that time, Ubuntu Security Notices will no longer include information or updated packages for Ubuntu 12.10. The supported upgrade path from Ubuntu 12.10 is via Ubuntu 13.10, though we highly recommend that once you've upgraded to 13.10, you continue to upgrade through to 14.04, as 13.10's support will end in July. Instructions and caveats for the upgrade may be found at: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SaucyUpgrades https://help.ubuntu.com/community/TrustyUpgrades Ubuntu 13.10 and 14.04 continue to be actively supported with security updates and select high-impact bug fixes. Announcements of security updates for Ubuntu releases are sent to the ubuntu-security-announce mailing list, information about which may be found at: https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/ubuntu-security... 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 customize or alter their software in order to meet their needs.
