It means that after April 2009 7.10 will reach EOL (End of Life) and
will no longer be supported.


[At that time, Ubuntu Security Notices will no longer include
information or updated packages for Ubuntu 6.10.]

Not to worry, Hardy will replace 6.10 and 7.10, and I am sure that a new
non-LTS Alpha version will come out in the next 6 months or so.
Otherwise we'd all be stuck with 8.10 in LTS time-warp mode for the next
three years :-)
