The packages are built for Ubuntu releases currently supported by
Canonical.  Once a new distribution is out, the packages are built for
it, both stable and mainline.  Once an old distribution is EOLed, the
new packages are no longer built for it but the old ones still remain in
the repo.

The list of the supported distros is available on
