Next long term support release - when?

Postby taylorkh on Tue Feb 26, 2013 9:05 pm

The current LTS release, 13, is supported until April 2017. What wil the next LTS release be? And when might it be released? I have found schedules for the prior and current releases but not the future. Sorry for a basic question which I should have been able to find the answer for myself. I just spent more than an hour arguing with my ISP's "technical" support trying to determine why their email pop3 server would not accept SSL connections and my mind is a little frazzled. (and the reason was that their instructions had the wrong server name - figured that out after I got off the line with them :x

Thanks,

Ken

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

The next LTS release will be Mint 17, approximately May of 2014.

Thanks tdockery97. I am running CentOS 6 on my main desktop as Ubuntu and Mint would not handle my dual monitor setup. Mint 14 does but I do not want to spend the effort to change to it only to have to do it over again in a year. Similar issue with my netbook and wife's desktop. Mint 13 Mate would not support remote desktop sharing so they are running Ubuntu 12.04 LTS with Gnome. The remote issue is fixed in 14. I guess I may need to revisit the question in 2014 although the Ubuntu machines are supported until 2017 :mrgreen: and the CentOS machine until 2020 :mrgreen: :mrgreen: I hate installing a new OS when I have the current one working just the way I want.

Thanks again,

Ken
