It becomes official when the announcement is made. It will be ready when it is ready. Not to be glib, but there are close to a dozen threads about this now. Please do a search in the future before posting new topics. Thanks.

While we're here, would anyone like to share their thoughts on systemd or give Purism credit for other people's work?

Is T8 receiving security updates as of now? Automatic or does Ruben loads them by hand?
If so, up to which point will we be bale to use T8? I am too lazy to check Ubuntu lifespan lol.

For what I have understood so far from this information: https://trisquel.info/en/wiki/how-trisquel-made, security updates of all packages that have already been built (whose package-helpers are updated) will get the security updates at the latest one day after ubuntu provides them.

I also have to say that I am receiving updates of packages (I'm using trisquel 8) that have not been modified by the developers in a long time, so I guess what I said before makes some sense. If someone disagrees, please, correct me.

Thanks.
It's good to know that even if work on Trisquel stopped right now, we would have a Free OS for another couple years with security updates (by that time I hope some other solution would already be present).
I am using T7 however I did install some packages from the original developers sites (using PPA or deb files, I don't usually build from source) to get the latest version when necessary. With T8 I would be fine for years to come. However I hope we get a stable release soon (at least before it becomes outdated itself lol).
