Update to newer version of Ubuntu


#1

C9 currently uses Ubuntu trusty (outdated) with outdated libraries.
I would like to see it updated to Ubuntu Vivid.

+1 I would love to see the version of Ubuntu used in the workspace containers updated. Version 14.04.3 is great but it is coming up on two years old.

Thanks for sharing your request. This is in our pipeline to be implemented, however I can’t confirm solid dates just yet.

You can stay up-to-date on new updates on our blog (https://c9.io/blog/) and Twitter (https://twitter.com/cloud9ide).

quite far behind, no? it is a pain in the neck to have to update each time i create a new instance

I would actually sign up for service if this was available (newer version). 14 is prehistoric to me.

Additionally I would like to see a true barebones image available. The ‘bare’ image, right now has something like 1100 packages.

If you added bare bones (-server) versions of recent 16.x I would become a paying customer tomorrow.
