Imply Product Support terms
The Imply Product includes the Imply distribution of Apache Druid, Pivot, Clarity, Imply Manager, and associated artifacts included in the Imply product distribution.
Note that the versioning scheme for Imply products has changed, and the support terms have also been modified accordingly.
Version lifecycle policy
As of November 2020, Imply releases fall into one of two categories: Long Term Support (LTS) and Short Term Support (STS).
Imply Product Long Term Support (LTS) releases are complete, stable versions of our products. They are subject to general bug fixes for one year and to security bug fixes for two years after release, but do not receive new features or feature enhancements. They are best suited to production environments that require stable operation and do not require the latest features.
Releases that are not subject to long term support — that is, Short Term Support (STS) releases — include the latest features, including experimental features. STS releases occur on a regular basis. They are not subject to bug fixes, but may receive critical security patches. If using an STS release, you must upgrade to the latest monthly release to receive the latest bug fixes.
