Avocado Releases

How we release Avocado

The regular releases are released after each sprint, which usually takes 3 weeks. Regular releases are supported only until the next version is released.

We also understand that there are multiple projects currently depending on the stability of Avocado and we don’t want their work to be disrupted by incompatibilities nor instabilities in new releases.

Because of that, we have LTS releases, that are regular releases considering the release cycle, but a new branch is created and bugfixes are backported on demand for a period of about 18 months after the release. Every year (or so) a new LTS version is released. Two subsequent LTS versions are guaranteed to have 6 months of supportability overlap.
