Ubuntu Kylin 14.04 LTS Proposal

The Ubuntu Kylin team is proposing that the Ubuntu Kylin 14.04 release would be supported for 5 years as an LTS release.


  • Ubuntu Kylin LTS Support Cycle. Most packages shipped in Ubuntu Kylin that are not shipped in Ubuntu are developed by the Ubuntu Kylin team. Since the team is upstream, those packages are, and will continue to be, well maintained.

Point Releases

  • Ubuntu Kylin will be following the point releases with Ubuntu as written in, to benefit from HWE improvement of point releases:

    • Ubuntu Kylin 14.04.1:
    • Ubuntu Kylin 14.04.2:
    • Ubuntu Kylin 14.04.3:
    • Ubuntu Kylin 14.04.4:

List of proposed long-term support applications

  • Ubuntu Kylin does not use seed, ubuntu-default-builder is used instead. Package addition and removal are done by ubuntukylin-default-settings.
