Note: This table is updated by hand and might be out of date. If you desperately want to use a newer version of a package, it's a good idea to check whether the distribution has been updated with the new version.

The following Linux distributions are not listed because they have already reached their end-of-support date, or will reach their end-of-support date too soon for us to accommodate them.

  • Fedora 19 and earlier
  • Ubuntu 10.04 LTS
  • Ubuntu 13.10 and earlier
  • Red Hat Enterprise (CentOS, Scientific Linux) 5.x and earlier
