Hello Linux Geeksters. The Ubuntu GNOME developers have proposed that Ubuntu GNOME 14.04 to have support for 2 years and 3 months (instead of 9 months, as usual), as a LTS release, in order to provide the users of Ubuntu LTS systems a stable and updated system.
As a reminder, Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr will be using GNOME 3.10 and not GNOME 3.12, which will be released this March, in order to provide a more stable environment, since Canonical had enough time to perform tests on GNOME 3.10.
The Gnome team intends to release 4 maintenance updates of Ubuntu GNOME 14.04: Ubuntu GNOME 14.04.1, Ubuntu GNOME 14.04.2, Ubuntu GNOME 14.04.3, Ubuntu GNOME 14.04.4.
As you may know, the relationship between Canonical and GNOME is not very tight, due to the fact that Canonical does not uses the latest GNOME version on their Ubuntu GNOME and we don’t know if the Ubuntu developers will accept to make Ubuntu GNOME LTS.
