How long is the support life cycle for a specific version/release of MetaDefender Central Management?

OPSWAT provides support on each release of MetaDefender Central Management for 12 months after the publication of the next release of the product (i.e. once a new release is published, you have 12 more months of support on the previous release). However, bug fixes and enhancements are applied only to the next release of a product, not to the current release or historical releases, even when those releases are still under support. In some cases hot-fixes can be provided for the current release of the product, and then incorporated as a regular fix in the next release.

OPSWAT strongly encourages customers to upgrade to the latest release on a regular basis and not to wait until the end of a releases supported life-cycle.

Please note: MetaDefender Central Management will be end of support on 30 Sep 2019. Every version that is released after 30 Sep 2018 (5.2.3) will not follow the regular 12 months support life cycle and have an end of support date on 30 Sep 2019 .
