Continuing with its usual path, Canonical has already announced the release date of Ubuntu 24.10, which will be codenamed Oracular Oriole. Last April 25 I arrive Noble Numbat, shortly after the adjective of the animal of the next version was announced and the next step was to make the roadmap public, which you have a little below.

En the calendar, the only thing that has happened now is that they have moved up the work chain. During the month of May there will not be any special moments, but in June there will be a week of tests. The most complete month will be September, and in October there will be a test week, Release Candidate and stable version. The exact day, the October 10.
