SysOrb Version support

The supported life of a given SysOrb Version is not determined directly by its age. Rather, the current and previous
major versions of SysOrb are supported with bug-fixes. As a new major version is released, the previous previous version will lose support, maintaining the status quo that the most recent two major versions are supported at all times.

Furthermore, we maintain and support the two most recent minor-revisions of the current major version. The principle is the same as above. In total, this means that we always maintain two or three full versions of SysOrb.

A version being supported, means, that Evalesco will correct reported bugs in the software and issue new builds of the supported version in a timely manner.
It is possible to run an older un-supported version of SysOrb; however, if a problem is discovered in that version, the remedy will be an upgrade to a newer version (either a higher minor version or a newer major version).

SysOrb Platform Deprecation at 4.2

With the release of SysOrb 4.2, the supported platforms for the SysOrb Server has changed.
Some old platforms are no longer supported by the SysOrb Server, while support for more modern platforms has been added. Please refer to the full list of supported platforms below.
If the information above pose significant problems for your installation, please do not hesitate to contact us at support@sysorb.com.

From SysOrb 3.6 the server will no longer support clustering.

It has been decided to remove clustering support in 3.6 and instead prepare for a better solution in the future. If you run SysOrb 3.4.2 (or an earlier version) in a cluster and would like to upgrade to SysOrb version 3.6 then please contact support@sysorb.com.

The full list of supported platforms for SysOrb 4.2 are:
