Understanding Ubuntu Names

|

Each Ubuntu release is associated with a number and name. The release number is the year and month of the release in an internationalized format. So ‘‘6.06’’ is July 2006 and ‘‘9.04’’ is April 2009 (and not September 2004). Each release is also associated with a common name. Releases are commonly referred to by their names. For example, 9.04 is commonly called Jaunty Jackalope or simply Jaunty.

Ubuntu Releases
Warty Warthog - 4.10 - April 2006
Hoary Hedgehog - 5.04 - October 2006
Breezy Badger - 5.10 - April 2007
Dapper Drake - 6.06 LTS - July 2009 (desktop), June 2011 (server)
Edge Eft - 6.10 - April 2008
Feisty Fawn - 7.04 - October 2008
Gutsy Gibbon - 7.10 - April 2009
Hardy Heron - 8.04 LTS - April 2011 (desktop), April 2013 (server)
Intrepid Ibex - 8.10 - April 2010
Jaunty Jackalope - 9.04 - October 2010
Karmic Koala - 9.10 - April 2011
Lucid Lynx - 10.04 LTS - April 2013 (desktop), April 2015 (server)

While most releases have 18 months of support, every other year a long-term support (LTS) version is released. The LTS releases provide three years of updates for the desktop, and five years for servers. The LTS is an excellent option for systems that cannot afford to be completely replaced every 18 months.
