This is a notice regarding releases of Ubuntu that have reached End of Life.
The following versions of Ubuntu and derivatives are officially end of life as of July 28, 2016:
- Wily Werewolf (15.10).
New questions regarding the above posted after the aforementioned date may need to be considered off-topic. Old questions (posted before the end of life date) that are still being answered regarding these releases should have a comment included on them about upgrading to a supported release to continue to get support for their versions of Ubuntu.
This information can be confirmed via the 15.10 End of Life Announcement email message stating the official End Of Life date, establishing July 28th, 2016 as the EOL date for Wily.
Please upgrade to a supported release to continue to receive support via Ask Ubuntu and Ubuntu Security updates. If you don't like upgrading every 9 months, it is highly recommended you install a long term support release in the future.
This Meta thread is NOT a discussion of how we handle EOL releases. This is simply a notification to all about an upcoming "End of Life" date for a current release of Ubuntu (as of this posting being made). Please refrain from asking in comments about how we handle EOL questions, or commenting on such handling policies.
