Ubuntu 8.04 EOL

Another Linux distro that we know and love is coming to an end.

Ubuntu announced the end of life for Ubuntu 8.04 “Hardy Heron” on May 9, 2013 – they will be providing no more updates for this Ubuntu version.

Support for Virtualmin on Ubuntu 8.04 is coming to an end as well. There will be no more releases for this Ubuntu version; we recommend that users of Ubuntu 8.04 upgrade to 10.04 or 12.04, both of which have active support.
