Canonical announced the other day that Ubuntu 10.04 LTS will be available on April 29. Both Desktop and Server versions will be available for download starting April 29. Ubuntu is well known for its release cycle of every six months. LTS or Long Term Support version, however, is released every 2 years with support up to 5 years. A non-LTS release is typically supported for 18 months.
In the meantime, Ubuntu 10.04 Beta2 is available now. If you are curious about the new features of 10.04, you can test run it by downloading Beta2 from Ubuntu’s website.
