below are the releases schedules of past, now discontinued legacy versions
Ubuntu Edition (discontinued, superseeded by Maui Linux)
Netrunner releases followed the same 6 months release cycle as Ubuntu.
Netrunner releases are targeted around ~8-12 weeks after a Kubuntu Release, having a 9 months support life for regular releases and a 2-year support life for LTS releases.
The official support for any LTS and all subsequent update releases (.point releases) ends with the release of the next LTS.
Each Release has a distinct version number and codename:
Preceding each new LTS release are 3 snapshot releases followed by the LTS release itself and 3 subsequent updates.
That means that each LTS cycle has a 2-year active support life and is replaced by a new LTS on its release date.
The update releases of the current LTS and the ongoing regular releases are happening in parallel.
The current active LTS version is Maui 1 (Aurora).
