Hardy is the second Long Term Support ("LTS") release of Ubuntu, with a strong emphasis on supportability for long term deployments on both the desktop and the server.

Hardy was delivered in April 2008 on the normal six-month Ubuntu cycle. It was designated 8.04 LTS. There were scheduled point release (8.04.1 to 8.04.4) about three months after the initial release and at six-month intervals thereafter. For this LTS, Canonical validated Hardy against a full portfolio of servers from major vendors, as well as running a certification program for ISVs.

The Hardy Heron has no packages recorded in Launchpad.
