About a year ago I've read that Ubuntu is considering to become a rolling distro. Since then I couldn't found any fresher news about the topic.
Anyone has official information about the transition?
Those rumors where unfounded, Ubuntu's plans to become a rolling distro never saw the light of day even if they were ever discussed internally.
That news that you saw back in 2010 triggered a response from Engineering Director of Ubuntu Rick Spencer.
On his blog post he clearly says
He goes further down saying
What he refers here is the +1 maintenance team which exist to ease the pressure on developers and make further releases easier and less stressful for them. It is not to be confused with a rolling release.
After that there was not further information or news about Ubuntu becoming a rolling release. I am assuming that this can be answered better by someone from Canonical / Ubuntu. But since those rumors where proven false and there is no further information about this I can assume that a rolling release is not on the planning table.
