Goodbye Ubuntu 8.04 LTS
Dear Ubuntu 8.04 users, the time has come to say goodbye to the Hardy Heron release of the popular Ubuntu operating system. One month from today, on May 12th, it reaches end of life (EOL).
Almost 36 months ago, on the 28th of April, 2008, Canonical was proud to announce the release of the Ubuntu 8.04 LTS operating system, dubbed Hardy Heron.
Ubuntu 8.04 LTS was Canonical's second LTS (Long Term Support) release and it introduced features such as GNOME 2.22.1, Linux kernel 126.96.36.199 (with dynticks support and a new process scheduler), X.Org 7.3, PulseAudio 0.9.10, iSCSI support, PolicyKit 0.7, ActiveDirectory integration and KVM integration.
We are sorry to announce today that starting with May 12th, 2011, Canonical will stop "feeding" the Ubuntu 8.04 LTS (Hardy Heron) Desktop edition with security or critical fixes, and software updates. The Server edition of Ubuntu 8.04 LTS (Hardy Heron) will continue to be actively supported with bug fixes and security updates.
