Wattos R6 use

Biff, (or anyone else with the answer) is R6 still being maintained with it being based on Ubuntu 12.04? Thanks, Rob.

The Ubuntu side... Obivously is a no go as Ubuntu no longer provide their updates.. From the WattOS side.. I would imagine we can still support yes :)

The Ubuntu package of wattOS R6 is updated now.
For example, the security correspondence may feel relieved.
(This expires on April, 2017)

But for wattOS of the OLD release (version) become handled.
Do not expect it for formula-like correspondence of wattOS.
It is a thing using wattOS R8 to solve this.

We will help anyone with any flavor of wattOS since I built them starting back in 2008. There may be a point where someone needs a package or fix or something that requires a forklift upgrade, and generally we have told people we don't support an in place upgrade typically.

However - I have a hard time saying no, so whoever or whatever Linux questions come along, either myself or someone will likely take a swing at it to help out.

tks....biff

Thanks for the replies. I was just curious with 12.04 being an LTS if R6 was good until 2017 as well, Rob.
