Focal Fossa (20.04 LTS) Final Release Status Tracking

This page is the canonical tracking document for the upcoming Focal Fossa release. It’s a live document. The Ubuntu release team will be updating it as we work on releasing 20.04 LTS.


  • 20.04 release is out!


  • We’re in Final Freeze
  • Daily image builds are off, only release-team triggered builds will be published from now on
  • Uploads to seeded packages are now blocked in focal-proposed and need to be explicitly unblocked to go onto future image spins. You might see us accepting packages into focal-proposed that we do not unblock, so they can be redirected to stable release updates, or unblocked at a later date if and when there’s going to be new images.
  • Final respin ready on Focal Final iso tracker. Please test!
  • We are now releasing!
