XebiaLabs Supported Product Versions

Short-term and long-term support policy

Starting with XL Deploy and XL Release 6.1.0, we have implemented a short-term support/long-term support model for product versions. That means that you can choose between two types of software versions:

  • Long-term support (LTS) versions are supported for a year after they've been superseded by the next major LTS release.
  • Short-term support (STS) versions are supported until they are superseded by the next LTS or STS version. Maintenance releases are not created for STS versions.

We recommend that you do not upgrade to STS versions that are no longer supported, as they may have issues that are resolved in later STS or LTS versions.

Maintenance releases

We provide support for LTS versions through maintenance releases, which contain fixes for bugs found in the LTS version. Maintenance releases are released as required. Support for a maintenance release ends when support for its corresponding LTS version ends.

Support overview

The following table provides an overview of short-term and long-term support features:

  Short-term Support Long-term Support
Supported until... The next STS or LTS version A year after it has been superseded by the next LTS version
Supported Yes Yes
Maintenance releases created No Yes
Hotfixes provided Yes Yes
Choose this if... You want the latest features as soon as possible, and you are prepared to upgrade to the next STS release to get more new features, improvements, and bug fixes You want a stable set of features and you want to receive maintenance releases that only contain bug fixes
