    Raring end of life 1/2014

    Wait, what? Did I miss something here? I am still running a development release.

    What? Raring reaches EOL in January of 2014? Thats 7 months from now. What is the problem you are having with that?

    Yes you missed something - they're changing the length of support.

    Thanks Elfy. I however think that they should just focus on LTS releases and eliminate incremental releases.

    They are continuing with:

    LTS (same as before...every 2 years and normal LTS support)

    6 Month Releases (with 9 months of support instead of 18)

    "Rolling Development" (supposed to begin with 13.04) but not actually called "Rolling" even though it essentially will be (lol)...they will make it so that it will point to each next development release without needing to actually upgrade to it...
