Support policy

As of Elgg 1.9, each minor release gets:
  • Normal bugfixes every 2 weeks for 3 months, at which point the next minor release candidate is made available.
  • Security and critical (i.e. regression) bug fixes for 1 year from the date of the next stable minor release. These will be released on an as-needed basis.
