Ubuntu 16.10 reaches end of life

Today, 10:03 PM

Posted by securitybreach in Bruno's All Things Linux


If you are still running Ubuntu 16.10, which was released last October, it’s time to upgrade. Also known as 'Yakkety Yak', it was released on October 13, 2016, and as per short-term release lifespans, has petered out its nine-month support cycle. If you’re still running 16.10, then it’s time to upgrade to Ubuntu 17.04 which will be supported until the start of 2018. Once a release, such as Ubuntu 16.10, reaches its end of life, it no longer receives any maintenance updates, critical security patches, or updated packages. The long-term support releases are better suited for people who don’t enjoy upgrading their system every six to nine months.

“But what if we have a 1G dedicated Internet connection?” Sorry, it’s not immune.

“But what if it’s fiber from a Tier 1 provider?” Your call quality is still high-risk.

Apple this week updated macOS Sierra, likely for the last time other than to deliver security patches.

The update -- the sixth since Sierra debuted in September 2016 -- signaled that its successor, macOS High Sierra, may officially ship on the same timetable as its predecessor.

Sierra 10.12.6 resolved a Lilliputian list of stability and compatibility issues, among them unexpected restarts of Xsan clients; Xsan is Apple's storage area network (SAN) technology. The stability of Terminal, the operating system's command-line interface, was also improved, according to Apple.
