Any version of Ubuntu that is not an LTS release should be considered testing versions not suitable for production use, but to be used to prepare features for the next LTS release.

Introduction

The latest LTS release is 14.04, the "Trusty Tahr"

LTS (Long Term Supported) versions of Ubuntu are available for critical production systems, which are released every two years and have five years free security support with expert paid technical support available from Canonical Ltd.

Upgrades

When a new LTS is released, you are welcome to upgrade, however Ubuntu advises that you wait until the first point release of the LTS upgrade is available, before you upgrade to a new LTS.
