End of Life Dates

'End of life (EoL)' is when a software reaches the end of its designated support period. When this happens varies across Ubuntu, Ubuntu flavours [1] and different releases, so we are gathering this information here to have a central reference for volunteer support efforts.

Releases which do not coincide with Ubuntu LTS releases are not listed here - these are always supported for 9 months since release and better documented on the official Releases page.


(i) Please note!

This page is updated as a volunteer community effort. None of the information provided here is to be understood as official or legally binding announcements by Canonical, the Ubuntu project or any Ubuntu flavours.
