Is Peppermint OS 4 now obsolete?

13.04 Raring Ringtail 2013-04-25 2014-01

(*) Version end of life
After each version of Ubuntu has reached its end-of-life time, its repositories are removed from the main Ubuntu servers and consequently the mirrors. Older versions of Ubuntu repositories and releases can be found on the old Ubuntu releases website

The 13.04 repositories will receive no new updates, but they will remain active.
(so you can still install packages from them)

Peppermint will continue to function until (and beyond) Peppermint 5 is released.

Hello Mark,

This is good news :D

I'm looked at the Zorin 8 and Linux lite 1.0.8, but I still Peppermint OS is my Linux distro number one! I have Peppermint-OS 4 installed as the only OS for people whom I sometimes help with their previous Windows laptops. And they didn't even now what Linux exactly was. One is a man in his 50's and a woman in her 60's. Only the man had a minor issue with his taskbar, which I did helped him out with. He said he liked it and also said to me that his laptop was not getting warm any-more . And so far I did get no further complaints, which I consider as a very good sign.

I did read that Peppermint-OS 5 wil be a LTS release...

. . HIGH

I'm looking forward to it.

Greetings Pengo
