End of support of Jenkins

Hi all
Wanted to know the END OF LIFE and END OF SUPPORT dates for jenkins.

Jenkins does use a rolling release scheme with 2 tracks:

  1. weekly, which tracks the development fast with weekly updates
  2. LTS which gets major updates every 12 weeks, see LTS Release Line , and bug fixes every 4 weeks.

Just always upgrade your selected track if a new release is available, as Jenkins strives hard to keep backward-compatibility.

Hi and welcome to this community, @Kiruthika. :wave:

You could monitor this page to know which versions are no longer supported.

Security fixes

When a security advisory is issued for Jenkins core, the Jenkins security team provides fixes for the most recent weekly release and the most recent long term support release. The security team provides detailed security process documentation for Jenkins administrators.

Older versions of Jenkins do not receive security fixes. Users who are concerned about security should upgrade their Jenkins LTS release every 4 weeks. If they are using Jenkins weekly, they should upgrade their Jenkins weekly release every week.
