Debian 10 Long Term Support reaching end-of-life        press@debian.org
June 15th, 2024                https://www.debian.org/News/2024/20240615

The Debian Long Term Support (LTS) Team hereby announces that Debian 10
"buster" support will reach its end-of-life on June 30, 2024, nearly
five years after its initial release on July 6th, 2019.

Starting in July, Debian will not provide further security updates for
Debian 10. A subset of "buster" packages will be supported by external
parties. Detailed information can be found at Extended LTS [1].

The Debian LTS Team will prepare afterwards the transition to Debian 11
"bullseye", the current oldstable release. Thanks to the combined effort
of different teams including the Security Team, the Release Team, and
the LTS Team, the Debian 11 life cycle will also encompass five years.
To make the life cycle of Debian releases easier to follow, the related
Debian teams have agreed on the following schedule: three years of
regular support plus two years of Long Term Support. The LTS Team will
take over support from the Security and the Release Teams on August 14,
2024, three years after the initial release on August 14, 2021. The
final point update release for "bullseye" will be published soon after
the final Debian 11 Security Advisory (DSA) will be issued.

Debian 11 will receive Long Term Support until August 31, 2026. The
supported architectures remain amd64, i386, arm64 and armhf.

For further information about using "bullseye" LTS and upgrading from
"buster" LTS, please refer to LTS/Using [2].

Debian and its LTS Team would like to thank all contributing users,
developers, sponsors and other Debian teams who are making it possible
to extend the life of previous stable releases.

If you rely on Debian LTS, please consider joining the team [3],
providing patches, testing or funding the efforts [4].
