Currently on Ubuntu the JDS is only supported on version 12.04, which will be exiting support later this year (2017). Does anyone know if JAMF have any plans to update the JDS system to support newer Ubuntu versions, for example 16.04 LTS?

@al_platt I don't think the situation is as simple as that with Ubuntu as there are architectural/package changes which impact the software. What I'm suggesting/asking is whether JAMF will be releasing an updated JDS which will support supported versions of Ubuntu after 12.04 support ends this year.
According to the admin guide version 9.99.0 will run on both 16.04 and 14.04.
Tested operating systems include:
Ubuntu 14.04 LTS Server
Ubuntu 16.04 LTS Server
Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 6.8 and 7.3
Windows Server 2012 R2
Windows Server 2016
I am running 9.98 on 14.04
Just some additional info on this, I entered a support ticket and got this response from support.
"At this time, we only support the JSS on 16.04, but not the JDS. The JDS will not actually install on 16.04 and we do have a feature request to line up the functionality of the JSS and the JDS support."
