April 17th 2014 – that’s the tentative date set for the release of Ubuntu 14.04 LTS.
The date, along with those for the various milestones used during a development cycle, are listed on the ‘T’ series release schedule on the Ubuntu Wiki.
All of the dates listed on the wiki (and reprinted below) are subject to change. So, for now, take a mental note of them in pencil rather than ink.
Ubuntu 13.10, currently in progress, is due to land on October 17th.
