OpenSSL release strategy

As of release 3.0.0, the OpenSSL versioning scheme is changing to a more contemporary format: MAJOR.MINOR.PATCH LTS releases will be supported for at least five years and we will specify one at least every four years. Non-LTS releases will be supported for at least two years. During the final year of support, we do not commit to anything other than security fixes. Before that, bug and security fixes will be applied as appropriate.
