Lifecycle Products Policy

Starting with Centreon 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 numbers are YY.MM

Releases of Centreon are named according to the year and the month of delivery. For example, Centreon 18.10 was released in October 2018. All modules and components of the Centreon software suite use the same versioning.

Release cadence

The Centreon company plans to deliver two releases by year, the first in April and the second in October. Between these two major releases, Centreon will continuously deliver minor updates including security fixes, bug fixes and enhancements.

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 phases: Major, critical bugs and blockers, or security issues are fixed by priority.
  3. Third phase: Blockers or security issues are fixed by priority.

Note

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

The second phase of a version begins when the next major version is available. For example, the release of Centreon 19.04 starts the second phase of Centreon 18.10.

The third phase of a version begins when the second next major version is available. For example, the release of Centreon 19.10 starts the third phase of Centreon 18.10 and the second phase of Centreon 19.04.
