Red Hat Developer Tools for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 Support Policy

Support Policy

The Red Hat Developer Tools utilize a rolling release support model, which is best suited for fast-evolving products like these tools. In this support model, support will only be provided on the latest release. If a non-security related bug is discovered in the current version, we will work to address it in the next scheduled release. The life cycle of each release and the release cadence will be selected based on what makes sense for the product.

Products covered by this support policy adhere to the Red Hat Enterprise Linux Life Cycle errata criteria for the Production Phase of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7. For example, during the Maintenance Support 2 phase, the tools will receive Red Hat-defined Critical and Important impact Security Advisories (RHSAs) in the current release and selected (at Red Hat discretion) Urgent Priority Bug Fix Advisories (RHBAs) in the next or last scheduled release. Similarly, no new product versions will be released during the Maintenance Support 2 Phase since Software Enhancements1 are not permitted during these phases. However, to achieve the 10 years support criteria for RHEL, one version of the tools will be identified at the start of the Maintenance Support 1 Phase and that version will receive maintenance as described by the support phases. Please see the Red Hat Enterprise Linux Life Cycle page for more information.

These products will not have a corresponding Extended Update Support (EUS) nor an Extended Life Cycle Support (ELS) offering.
