Life Cycle

Deprecated Features will pass through the following status:

DEPRECATED

  • Deprecation announcements will be included with each release if applicable.
  • Deprecated features will continue to be supported after the deprecation announcement for the lifetime of the current release.
  • The resolution is set to deprecated.

UNSUPPORTED

  • End of support announcements will be included with each release if applicable.
  • With the current release a previously deprecated feature becomes an unsupported feature, i.e. should problems occur then they will not be fixed.
  • The functionality is still usable.
  • The resolution is set to deprecated.

REMOVED

  • Feature removal announcements will be included with each release if applicable.
  • Prevously unsupported features are removed from the current release.
  • The resolution is set to deprecated.

Example

  • Lifecycle
    • A feature is announced as being deprecated with release 1.8:
      • This feature will still be included in all maintenance releases1.8.1, 1.8.2 etc.
    • This feature will then be announced as being unsupported from release 1.9:
      • This feature will still be included in all maintenance releases 1.9.1, 1.9.2 etc.
      • Support will not be provided if an unsupported feature should break in a release 1.9 or later
    • This feature may be removed in a subsequent release such as 1.10 or later.
  • Please note:
    • The period between releases will usually be around three months.
    • This means that you will have about six months time to modify your configuration and to upgrade to replacement features.
