Version: 21.04

Products lifecycle policy

Starting with Centreon version 18.10, Centreon will publish new releases of the Centreon solution at a regular cadence, enabling the community, businesses and developers to plan their roadmaps with the guarantee of upstream access to the latest open source capabilities.

Version number format: YY.MM​

Releases of Centreon are named according to the year and the month of delivery. For example, Centreon 21.04 was released in April 2021. All modules and components of the Centreon software suite use the same versioning.

Release cadence​

Centreon’s action plan is to deliver two major releases per year. The first, will occur in April while the second, will be in October. Between these two, Centreon will continuously deliver minor updates, patches, security vulnerability fixes, bug fixes and enhancements to the software priority/risk evaluation that fits into the lifecycle phases.

Maintenance and security updates​

The lifecycle of a version is divided into three phases:

  1. First phase: Bugs of all severity levels (minor, major, critical, blocker) and security issues are fixed by priority.
  2. Second phase: Major, critical bugs and blockers, or security issues are fixed by priority.
  3. Third phase: Blockers or security issues are fixed by priority.

The severity and prioritization of bugs are the Centreon team's responsibility.

The first phase begins the lifecycle of the release.

The second phase of a version begins when the next major version is available. For example, the release of Centreon 21.04 starts the second phase of Centreon 20.10.

The third phase of a version begins when the second next major version is available. For example, the release of Centreon 21.04 starts the third phase of Centreon 20.04 and the second phase of Centreon 20.10.
