Ubuntu 14.04 LTS Release Schedule Revealed


April 17th 2014 – that’s the tentative date set for the release of Ubuntu 14.04 LTS.


The date, along with those for the various milestones used during a development cycle, are listed on the ‘T’ series release schedule on the Ubuntu Wiki.


All of the dates listed on the wiki (and reprinted below) are subject to change. So, for now, take a mental note of them in pencil rather than ink.


Ubuntu 13.10, currently in progress, is due to land on October 17th.


Ubuntu 14.04 LTS Release Dates


In keeping with the release schedules for the last 2 release cycles, Ubuntu (proper) will participate from the final beta milestone onwards.

Ubuntu’s siblings, Xubuntu, Lubuntu, Kubuntu & co, will be available for testing sooner, with two alpha and beta milestones available to them.

  • Alpha 1 - December 19th (for flavours)
  • Alpha 2 – January 23rd (for flavours)
  • Beta 1 – February 27th (for flavours)
  • Final Beta – March 27th
  • Release Candidate – April 10th

With the final release scheduled for:

  • Ubuntu 14.04 LTS – April 17th

Curious how having a new and untried display server and the X fallback session being removed in an LTS build plays out.. personally for something that's long term support they shouldn't have removed the X fallback until one of the minor releases, has some serious potential to blow up in their face.

Good to know but I doubt I use straight up Ubuntu anyway. I will be using either Xubuntu or Lubuntu. I hope they keep their heads on straight and leave Mir alone.
