As you probably know the ubuntu server team is working on the next LTS release, Lynx, which is scheduled in approx. 4 months from now.
As I'm starting deploying many of my turnkey appliances these days I'm wondering what will be my upgrading options, since some of the important appliances are deployed on real hardware or on my DMZ dist upgrade is quite important, new hardware drivers in the kernel and new features of other core components make it a must for me.
Are there any plans for that ? are there any other options of upgrade ?
