"Dear Ubuntu 9.04 users, the time has come to say
goodbye to the Jaunty Jackalope release of the popular Ubuntu
operating system. One month from today, on October 23rd, it reaches
end of life.
"Almost 18 months ago, on the 23rd of April, 2009, Canonical was
proud to announce the release of Ubuntu 9.04, dubbed Jaunty
Jackalope, which introduced features such as GNOME 2.26.1, Linux
kernel 126.96.36.199, LZMA compression, automatic keyboard detection,
Computer Janitor app, Brasero, PulseAudio, and of course, the
wonderful system notifications powered by notify-osd!
"Starting with October 23rd, 2010, Canonical will stop "feeding"
the Ubuntu 9.04 (Jaunty Jackalope) operating system with security
or critical fixes, and software updates!"
