XebiaLabs short-term and long-term support policy

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

  • Long-term support (LTS) versions are supported for a year after they've been superseded by the next major LTS release. A major new version is released every 6 months, with maintenance releases in between.
  • Short-term support (STS) versions are supported until they are superseded by the next LTS or STS version.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.

Maintenance releases

XebiaLabs provides support for LTS versions through maintenance releases, which contain fixes for bugs found in the LTS version. Maintenance releases are released as required, which is usually once every two months. Support for a maintenance release ends when support for its corresponding LTS version ends.

Version numbering

If the second digit of a version number is 0 or 5, it is an LTS version; otherwise, it is an STS version. For example, XL Release 7.0.x is an LTS version, while XL Release 6.2.x is an STS version.

If the final digit of a version number is not zero, then it is a maintenance release. For example, XL Deploy 6.0.2 is the second maintenance release for the XL Deploy 6.0.x LTS version.

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