    Cool What is the latest Ubuntu release?

    I just downloaded Ubuntu 20.04.2.0 and was wondering if this is the latest release?
    How often are new versions released?

    I would appreciate any feedback you can provide.

    Thanks.

    Re: What is the latest Ubuntu release?

    Assuming you are a new user of Ubuntu, I would say that you have the correct version.

    Every two years, in April of the even years, a long term support (LTS) version is released which has 5 years support (3 years for some of the other DE versions such as Xubuntu, Ubuntu-Mate), but the interim versions, released every 6 months have only 9 months support.
    Most users should use the LTS versions and leave the interim versions for users who wish to offer support to the developers or just have fun keeping up with developments; they are often not as stable as the LTS versions.

    So summing up; stick with what you've already got.

    20.04 is the latest LTS (long term support) release and is supported 5 years, until April 2025
    21.04 is not LTS and is only supported 9 months, until March 2022

    If you are new to Ubuntu I recommend the LTS release.
