In June 2020, we re-branded Enterprise releases to become Long Term Support releases. Each Long Term Support release will continue to receive the following backports during its standard 2-year support window:

  • Critical security bug fixes
  • Critical bug fixes
  • All other security bug fixes, whenever possible
This allows you to get the maximum value from our continuous product development without strictly keeping up with the frequent release cadence.

Enterprise releases VS Long Term Support releases

Long Term Support releases were originally named Enterprise releases. We introduced our first Enterprise Releases back in January 2018.

Long Term Support releases are designed specifically for larger, more complex instances – ones that require significant planning and effort to upgrade. We understand that upgrades for such instances can be few and far between, and so every upgrade needs to count.  So if you can manage only one feature release upgrade every year, make sure you upgrade to the latest Enterprise release.

We compiled a list of resources to help you understand how Long Term Support releases differ from other Feature releases:
