Ubuntu Studio 18.04 Extended Support 
Back in April 2018, Ubuntu Studio 18.04 was released as a non-LTS 
(Long-Term Support) version, which limited its support cycle to end 
January 2019. This was due to a number of factors, from the involvement 
of the team members at the time to the number of team members.

In January 2019, the team came up with the idea for a Backports PPA of 
certain software to eliminate certain bugs and update the main packages 
(the ones that make Ubuntu Studio what it is). It was officially 
announced in February 2019.

As such, *the* *Ubuntu Studio team no longer supports Ubuntu Studio 
18.04 unless the Ubuntu Studio Backports PPA is added.*Adding the 
Ubuntu Studio Backports PPA *increases the support length of Ubuntu 
Studio 18.04 to 3 years total*, with support *ending in April 2021.*

For more information about the Ubuntu Studio Backports PPA and how to 
add it, please click this link 
<https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuStudio/BackportsPPA>. To see 
what it contains, click this link 

The Ubuntu Studio Backports PPA contains backported packages for all 
currently supported versions of Ubuntu Studio, with the exception of 
Ubuntu Studio 16.04 LTS which reaches end-of-life on April 25, 2019.
