Subject description: 16.04 also extended beyond April of 2021

Ubuntu 18.04 was released in April of this year, and the new announcement means that it will be supported until 2028. It is a significant and important change for developers working in various fields including hardware, IoT and the cloud, but it is not known whether a similar support cycle will be adopted for future LTS releases.

Mark Shuttleworth said:

I'm delighted to announce that Ubuntu 18.04 will be supported for a full 10 years. In part because of the very long time horizons in some of industries like financial services and telecommunications but also from IoT where manufacturing lines for example are being deployed that will be in production for at least a decade.

What does it mean for our developers?

Hello, labbe5.

Euthanasia is not for distros!!! Twisted Evil

And hip-hip-hurrah for the xenialPup, too! (Speaking for my own neck-
of-the-woods!...)

You did not mention, though, for how long the Xenial Squirrel is being
extended.

Any reference for this info?

TIA.
