Definition of support

Being supported means:

  • The release team is committed to making available updates to the Mahara that are security related.
  • Occasionally some other serious bugfixes will be included, but these are not guaranteed.


Release Schedule

Current and Upcoming releases

As of Mahara 1.5 and the adoption of the 6 month release cycle, Mahara is supported for the duration of 3 release cycles.

Older releases

For Mahara 1.4 and earlier, support has been provided for 2 release cycles.


Extended support

We upload packaged versions of Mahara to Debian and Ubuntu, which can be installed via the repositories.

This means that we provide security fixes only for these packages until the "End of life" dates.

Ubuntu

LTS versions of Ubuntu (Marked in bold text in the table) are supported for 5 years, Normal releases are supported for 18 months.
