Supported Versions

Each release branch of Squiz Matrix is fully supported for three years from its initial stable release. During this period, bugs and security issues that have been reported are fixed and are either released in new versions or provided as patches for Squiz customers.

Once a new branch is released and actively maintained, the previous branch ceases to get new version releases. However it will remain in security support until it's three year period ends.

Once the three years of support are completed, the branch reaches its end of life and is no longer supported.

Currently supported branches:

  • 5.5 - Actively supported. Reported bugs and security issues are fixed and regular releases with new enhancements are made.
  • 5.4 - Supported for critical bugs and security issues only. Releases are only made on an as-needed basis.

Unsupported versions:

  • 5.0 - 5.3 - No longer supported. Users of this version should upgrade as soon as possible.
