It says in https://help.github.com/en/actions/automating-your-workflow-with-github-actions/workflow-syntax-for-... that Ubuntu 18.04 can be reached through the `ubuntu-18.04` or `ubuntu-latest` tags but shouldn't `ubuntu-latest` be 19.10?
Solved! Solved! Go to Solution.
18.04 and 16.04 are Long Term Support (LTS) versions, which are more appropriate for this use case as they receive security and other updates for much longer than other releases. Using non-LTS releases would require users to switch much more frequently. The next one will be 20.04. See https://ubuntu.com/about/release-cycle
