Release Strategy

A new major version is planned for release once a year. Generally, every major release is followed by a minor version after six months. Patches are released as needed to fix high-urgency issues, or once a stable version accumulates enough fixes to justify it. As a rule, older versions are not supported as Redis try to make the Redis API mostly backward compatible. Upgrading to newer versions is the recommended approach and is usually trivial. The latest stable release is always fully supported and maintained. Two additional versions receive maintenance only, meaning that only fixes for critical bugs and major security issues are committed and released as patches: * The previous minor version of the latest stable release. * The previous stable major release.
