New version soon?

New version soon?

Postby indicolts » Thu May 10, 2018 7:13 pm

I've been hunting around and can't find anything that predicts when a major update to Zorin might be released based upon the latest Ubuntu version (18.04). Any info?
thanks

Hi, Zorin 12.3 was the last major release and only just out recently. You have to remember that small forks of Ubuntu don't run to the same timescale. Zorin comprises of the two Zorin brothers plus 2 full time-developers. Zorin OS 12 is the first Zorin release to be a 'rolling' release so that at whatever version you are at, updates will get applied taking you up to the next release without the need of a fresh install or complex updating. Releases will only be pushed out once all testing has been done to ensure a stable transition to the next iteration. ;) :D
