Ubuntu 14.04 LTS Trusty 最後階段開跑

code name 為 Trusty Tahr 的 Ubuntu 14.04 在最終要釋出的準備了:「Final Freeze for Ubuntu 14.04 LTS (trusty) at 2100UTC today」。

Ubuntu 的 LTS 規劃也找到一個大家都可以接受的平衡點了:整個社群與商業團體都會把 LTS 版本列為重點支援,固定兩年 release 一次的時間表讓這些人 (社群與商業團體) 也都很清楚知道什麼時間點要更新。

而 LTS 也不是完全凍結而只更新安全部份:(下面出自「List of Ubuntu releases」)

Like other LTS releases, 12.04 will include point releases that bundle updates to shorten downloads for users installing the release later in its lifecycle. The point releases and dates are: 12.04.1 (23 August 2012), 12.04.2 (14 February 2013), 12.04.3 (scheduled for release on 22 August 2013, but actually released on 23 August 2013) and 12.04.4 (6 February 2014).

對於 Point release 沒有更新的軟體,用 PPA 的方式讓社群去維護 LTS 平台上的支援。
