Debian Long Term Support
Debian Long Term Support (LTS) is a project to extend the lifetime of all Debian stable releases to (at least) 5 years. Debian LTS will not be handled by the Debian security team, but by a separate group of volunteers and companies interested in making it a success.
Thus the Debian LTS team takes over security maintenance of the various releases once the Debian Security team stops its work. The team will thus handle:
- Debian 6 “Squeeze” until 29th of February 2016
- Debian 7 “Wheezy” from 26th April 2016 to 31st May 2018
- Debian 8 “Jessie” from May 2018 to end of April/May 2020
The supported architectures for Debian LTS are: i386, amd64, armel and armhf.
Companies using Debian who are benefitting from this project are encouraged to either help directly or contribute financially. The amount of packages which are properly supported depends directly on the level of support that we get.
