Where is Ubuntu 17.04?

I recently created a droplet for my testing environment using Ubuntu 17.04 x64. Now I am trying to create a staging environment based on that same Ubuntu version, but 17.04 is no longer available. I just see 17.10 and 16.x.

How can I create a droplet based on 17.04? Or, what is the policy here? Does DO only support the LTS versions and the latest version?

17.04 is End of Life and hasn’t received security updates for over a year.
