UnrealIRCd 4 is supported until December 31, 2020. After that date all support and bugfixes, including security fixes, will stop.

We recommend to upgrade to UnrealIRCd 5 somewhere in the first half of 2020. In total the EOL date of UnrealIRCd 4 gives you 12 months to do so, which should be ample time.
