Ubuntu makes a distinction between server and desktop. Ubuntu desktop
LTS is supported for 3 years and Ubuntu server LTS for 5 years.
server 8.04 is maintained until April 2013.

Does this mean .deb packages are only released
for the new LTS version
further on?? As we do not always upgrade immediately we would like to
see support for 8.04 LTS a little bit longer if possible. After all
that's the advantage of LTS...
No, I will make sure that 8.04 will be supported as long as Ubuntu will
support 8.04 (so that should be at least until 2013 I belief). I
personally use 8.04 on some of my own servers and I only upgrade if I
really have to.
What I should have said is that once the new LTS release (10.04) is out
the Virtual Appliance will probably be based on the new LTS release. Not
immediately but after some time once we know that 10.04 is stable
enough. The reason we will use the new LTS is that the new LTS will
again be supported for 5 years.
