Ubuntu announced the 10.04 Netbook Edition and Ubuntu for ARM products 18 months ago, on April 29, 2010. At that time, Ubuntu committed to ongoing security and critical fixes for a period of 18 months for these specific products.
This support period is now ending, and on October 29, 2011 the 10.04 Netbook Edition and Ubuntu for ARM products will no longer be supported. Ubuntu 10.04 LTS Desktop and Server products continue to be supported.
The upgrade path from Ubuntu 10.04 Netbook and ARM is to Ubuntu 10.10. Instructions and caveats for the upgrade may be found at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/MaverickUpgrades.
Ubuntu 10.04 LTS for Desktop and Server products continues to be actively supported with security updates and select high-impact bug fixes. All announcements of official security updates for Ubuntu releases are sent to the ubuntu-security-announce mailing list, information about which may be found at https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/ubuntu-security-announce.
Since its launch in October 2004 Ubuntu has become one of the most highly regarded Linux distributions with millions of users in homes, schools, businesses and governments around the world. Ubuntu is Open Source software, costs nothing to download, and users are free to customise or alter their software in order to meet their needs.
