Hi everyone!

I'd like to know if anyone is still using U++ on Ubuntu 8.04 LTS Hardy Heron or on Ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty Jackalope. Hardy officially is now only spported in the server version (till Aprill 2013), Jaunty is not supported by Canonical anymore at all.

I am asking because I would like to upgrade the launchpad builds to a newer version of debian packages, which is unfortunately not supported in these two old Ubuntu versions, so I am contemplating dropping the support for them. The statistics from I gathered from launchpad say that for last release there was 6 downloads from hardy and 3 from jaunty. That is definitely minor compared to 250+ downloads of the other versions, so I think that dropping them is no big deal, but I don't want to cause any trouble to anyone (so that's why I'm asking Wink ).

If you use the PPA on any of those two, please let me know ASAP.

Thanks,
Honza

Does somebody still use ubuntu Ubuntu 8.04 LTS Hardy Heron or on Ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty Jackalope?

This is last call. After half a year of this question hanging here I finally rewrote the packaging and since it now uses more modern format, adding support for hardy would be quite complicated. So if nobody objects, I'm determined to drop support for those two outdated distributions.

Best regards,
Honza

Hi Honza,

There may be other opinions, but I think there is no reason for you to extend your support beyond what Ubuntu offers for the OS platform: It's 18 months for a normal biannual release, three years for LTS on desktop and five years for LTS on server. Although starting with 12.04 LTS, it will be five years for LTS for both desktop and server. (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LTS)

Best regards,

Tom

Well, yes I'm ... It depends whether we want to go for the server support lifetime. But thinking of it now, since development should happen on desktops I guess it is reasonable to drop Hardy Smile

And just today I noticed Jaunty support was removed from Launchpad, so it is gone forever whether anyone likes it or not Very Happy
