Compatibility and lifecycle

We support each major release of ITRS OP5 Monitor for 18 months from the release date, and we maintain the last minor release of the most recent major releases.

Release types

The version numbers consist of three digits that represent major, minor, and micro releases. For example, 8.0.6.

ITRS OP5 Monitor continuously introduces new releases, which are considered micro releases:

  • Major versions provide us with an opportunity to introduce features.
  • When there have been enough micro releases that changed the user experience significantly or we introduce new features, we introduce a minor version number.
  • Active maintenance of a minor release implies that we are fixing issues.
