The Acquia Cloud 1.64.3 release includes the following new enhancement:
- Servers on Ubuntu 8.04 (Hardy Heron) must upgrade to Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid Lynx) by May 2013
Acquia Cloud servers run on the Ubuntu distribution of Linux. Servers created since May 2012 run on Ubuntu version 10.04 (Lucid Lynx). Older servers may run on Ubuntu version 8.04 (Hardy Heron). As of May 2013, Canonical, the developers of Ubuntu, will no longer be supporting Ubuntu version 8.04. As a result, it is important that all Acquia Cloud servers be upgraded to the newer Ubuntu version 10.04.
Acquia will upgrade servers for affected Acquia Cloud Enterprise customers. Other affected Acquia Cloud customers will need to upgrade their own servers at a time of their choosing before May 3, 2013. Since this upgrade contains significant security fixes, Acquia will perform rolling upgrades on all sites that have not already upgraded by Friday, May 3, 2013. The upgrades will begin on May 5 at 6PM EDT and continue through May 10th at 8PM EDT. We strongly suggest you perform the upgrade at your convenience prior to May 3, 2013.
