UnrealIRCd 6 EOL
UnrealIRCd 6 is the current stable version. There is currently no EOL (End Of Life) date.
At UnrealIRCd, we only announce the EOL date of the previous version when next major release is out. We do have the following guarantee: when a new major version is out, the previous major version is supported for at least another 12 months to give everyone plenty of time to upgrade. Between UnrealIRCd 5 and UnrealIRCd 6 it was/is even 18 months.
The currently supported UnrealIRCd versions (and EOL dates) can be seen in the table below:
|Series||First stable release||Security fixes only||End of life (EOL)||Duration||Comment|
|UnrealIRCd 3.2||2004-04-25||2015-12-11||2016-12-31||12.5 years||Very old, unsupported, do not use|
|UnrealIRCd 4||2015-12-24||2019-05-20||2020-12-31||5 years||Old, unsupported, do not use|
|UnrealIRCd 5||2019-12-13||2022-07-01||2023-07-01||3.5 years||Oldstable|
There is no strict release cadence of the major versions.
When a new major version is released we will announce the exact end dates of the previous major release. The previous major release is always supported for at least another 12 months after the new major release.
