OS Versions that are no longer supported

GitLab provides omnibus packages for operating systems only until their EOL (End-Of-Life). After the EOL date of the OS, GitLab will stop releasing official packages. The list of deprecated operating systems and the final GitLab release for them can be found below:

Supported Operating Systems

GitLab officially supports LTS versions of operating systems. While OSs like Ubuntu have a clear distinction between LTS and non-LTS versions, there are other OSs, openSUSE for example, that don't follow the LTS concept. Hence to avoid confusion, the official policy is that at any point of time, all the operating systems supported by GitLab are listed in the installation page.

The following lists the currently supported OSs and their possible EOL dates.
