Going from 18.10 Beta to Final Release
#1
This is an easy question for the right person. I first installed Ubuntu Mat'e 18.10 Beta a few weeks ago. I installed it on its own SSD drive to see how well it worked with my hardware. Adjusted all the tweaks, bell, and gadgets to my liking. Over some time I basally moved in to this distro. Here’s my question, will the Beta version upgrade to the Final release? I know it's only supported for nine months.

I honestly doubt that such an upgrade would be possible, you mostlikely will have to reinstall.
But if you backup your home partition with a tool like Joes XBT you could theoretically take all your configurations with you.

Thanks for the reply. I decided to backup and install the Ubuntu Mat'e 18.04 LTS so I have something that will last a while. I noticed little difference.
