Warning: Java update and JCE unlimited strength policy files

Ubuntu makes a distinction between server and desktop. Ubuntu desktop
LTS is supported for 3 years and Ubuntu server LTS for 5 years.

According to http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/download-server Ubuntu
server 8.04 is maintained until April 2013.

Kind regards,

Many thanks for the heads-up! We deploy the VM and upgraded as instructed, and all seems well.

I believe Ubuntu 8.04 LTS and only going to be maintained until April 2011 ... see http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/download ... I'm I interpreting that correctly?

Thanks again!

No, I will make sure that 8.04 will be supported as long as Ubuntu will
support 8.04 (so that should be at least until 2013 I belief). I
personally use 8.04 on some of my own servers and I only upgrade if I
really have to.

What I should have said is that once the new LTS release (10.04) is out
the Virtual Appliance will probably be based on the new LTS release. Not
immediately but after some time once we know that 10.04 is stable
enough. The reason we will use the new LTS is that the new LTS will
again be supported for 5 years.
