The Heron Cometh (with some Sunshine on its shoulder)
By barton808 on Apr 02, 2008
We are now about three and half weeks from the debut of Hardy Heron aka Ubuntu 8.04 LTS (Long Term Support). This will be the second LTS for Ubuntu, the first being 6.06 (aka Dapper Drake), and it will help to give Ubuntu greater credibility in the enterprise.
Sun and Canonical worked together to certify Sun systems for the original LTS and have done so for every release from then on. In the case of Hardy look for a few new systems.
On the software side when we last saw Sun's Java stack it was safely within the Gutsy (Ubuntu 7.10) multiverse. Tune in on the 24th of April to see what progress our Java bits have made within the distro. :)
Hardy Heron -- What a long strange trip its been.
Pau for now...
