Release strategy

Oracle Linux Premier Support and Oracle Linux Basic Support for Oracle Linux program releases 5, 6, 7, and 8 are available for ten years from the date a release of the Oracle Linux program becomes generally available. Support for Oracle Linux program may be extended for additional three years with Oracle Linux Extended Support. Unlike RHEL, Oracle Linux does not support point releases once a newer one is available. Once a new minor point release is available, the older one is immediately considered end of life and users must upgrade to continue receiving security updates. For example once 8.5 gets a general release, 8.4 is immediately end of life.
