New versions of Ubuntu Linux have been released at a steady six-month
cadence, but project founder Mark Shuttleworth is considering a six-week
delay to improve the reliability of an important new version.
The next version, called Dapper Drake, is due in April. It's the first
version that will have longer-term support commitments--three years for
the desktop computer version and five years for servers, compared to 18
months for the current 5.10 "Breezy Badger" version.
Getting those features right is important, Shuttleworth said in an e-
mail on Friday. "We will live with Dapper for five years--so let's give
it a few extra weeks now so that it can be a real asset to the Ubuntu
project for the full duration of its lifespan," Shuttleworth said.
