Karmic has Likewise-Open 4.1 in main and 5.0 in universe, because migrating from 4.1 to 5.0 requires manually leaving / rejoining the domain. For Lucid we want to only support the latest upstream version (5.4) and provide a clean migration path from all previous versions.

Release Note

N/A. It is a new upstream version, and migration should happen automatically.


Likewise upstream already did/will do all the migration/upstream/packaging/testing work; the only thing left for us to do is review and sponsoring.

The packages will upgrade automatically from all previously packaged versions (4.0, 4.1, 5.0).


At UDS Lucid they gave a presentation about the current status:
