This page explains Cockroach Lab's policy for supporting major releases of CockroachDB.
Each major release of CockroachDB goes through the following support cycle:
Maintenance Support: For at least 365 days from the major release date, Cockroach Labs will produce regular patch releases including resolutions to problems identified by users.
Assistance Support: Following the maintenance support period, Cockroach Labs will provide assistance support for at least an additional 180 days. During this period, the following guidelines will apply:
- New enhancements and error corrections will not be made to the major release.
- Cockroach Labs will direct customers to existing fixes/patches and workarounds applicable to the reported case.
- Cockroach Labs may direct customers to upgrade to a more current version of the product if a workaround does not exist.
End of Life (EOL): Following the assistance support period, Cockroach Labs will no longer provide any support for the release.
Cockroach Labs will notify you by mail or email 6 months in advance of a major release transitioning into Assistance Support or EOL.
Current supported releases
As of v19.1, Cockroach Lab uses a three-component calendar versioning scheme. Prior releases use a different versioning scheme. For more details, see Release Naming.
There will be a one-time extension of Assistance Support for v2.1 to July 1, 2020.
