To: <ubuntu-announce at lists.ubuntu.com>

Ubuntu announced its 10.04 (Lucid Lynx) release almost 3 years ago,
on April 29, 2010.  As with the earlier LTS releases, Ubuntu committed
to ongoing security and critical fixes for a period of 3 years on the
desktop. The support period is now nearing its end and Ubuntu 10.04
Desktop will reach end of life on Thursday, May 9th.  At that time,
Ubuntu Security Notices will no longer include information or updated
packages for Ubuntu 10.04 Desktop.  Ubuntu 10.04 Server continues to
be supported for another 2 years.

The supported upgrade path from Ubuntu 10.04 is via Ubuntu 12.04.
Instructions and caveats for the upgrade may be found at
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/PreciseUpgrades.  Ubuntu 12.04
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

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.

On behalf of the Ubuntu Release Team,

Adam Conrad
