Removing Ubuntu 14.04 LTS support in master (4.12 release)
I've just opened a Pull Requests  to remove support for Ubuntu 14.04.
Ubuntu 14.04 will be EOL in 2019 and the current LTS versions are 16.04
(2021) and 18.04 (2023).
Ubuntu 14.04 lacks Java 8 and also has older Qemu and Libvirt versions.
Yet to be implemented/merged functions like Live Storage Migration and
Burst I/O limitation for KVM require more recent versions of Qemu and
Libvirt not provided by Ubuntu 14.04.
Therefor I opened the Pull Request to drop support for 14.04 in the
With the 4.12 release happening later this year or early next year we
would be trying to support a Ubuntu release which will go EOL in ~6 months.
The current 4.11 release will support Ubuntu 14.04, so users running
that CloudStack version can keep running their infrastructure.
If there are objections, please post a comment on the Pull Request or if
you agree with dropping the support, please post a comment as well.
