is provided for 5 years for each latest minor version. This means maintenance releases will be issued within 5 years since the latest stable minor update is released for each major version of CUBA Platform. Free maintenance is also provided for 3 months for the previous minor version of each major release since the new minor version gets released. Such a period is assumed to be enough to update your application to the latest minor version.
For example, version 100.8.x gets released on September, 1 3000. The penultimate minor version (100.7.x) will be under free maintenance until November, 30 3000.

So, version 100.8.x will be under free maintenance support for another 5 years until August, 31 3005; or until the new minor version (100.9.x) gets released.
Please note, that while we are committed to sticking to this free maintenance policy, it is not a legally binding offer and may possibly change.
