End of Support Policy

Applies to ReadyAPI 3.42.1, last modified on November 28, 2022

ReadyAPI versions are in the format of Major.Minor.Patch (Ex: 14.1.14100).

​Each released version of ReadyAPI receives Active Support for one year from its initial release date. During this period, features, enhancements, bug fixes, and security patches may be released and the version numbers incremented accordingly.​

After the one year period of Active Support, each version is then supported for an additional one year with Security Support. Releases are only made on an as-needed basis to the most current minor.patch release of a major version.​

Two years after the initial release date, the version reaches the End of Support (EOS). SmartBear does not provide support for EOS versions, except for guidance on upgrading from an EOS version to a supported version.​
