below are the releases schedules of past (discontinued or legacy) versions
Netrunner Rolling (based on Manjaro/Arch)
Rolling Releases are done with “snapshots”. New snapshot ISOs are released on a regular basis.
Rolling Releases don’t have an extra codename and carry year and month (YYYY.MM) as their version number.
The last snapshot ISO was 2016.01.
Kubuntu-based Releases (discontinued, superseeded by Maui Linux)
Kubuntu-based releases followed the same 6 months release cycle and LTS as Ubuntu.
Kubuntu-based releases were 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).
