v7.0 - kernel 5.11 EOL ?

I just read the roadmap of pmx v7 and see the default kernel 5.11 is end of life
Kernel 5.11 - EOL - may 19, 21
Proxmox VE uses a kernel which is based on Ubuntu's kernel (which is 5.11 for 21.04, and will remain supported as long as Ubuntu 21.04 is still supported ) - usually the Proxmox kernel switches over with the Ubuntu releases until a new Ubuntu LTS release gets out (22.04 will be the next LTS release) - at that point the Proxmox kernel vor 7.x will switch over to that one and remain there.

I hope this explains it!
