The OpenMRS community can only support a limited number of released versions, since supporting a release takes peoples' time and effort (e.g., backporting bug fixes). As a community, we have agreed to do our best to support up to three versions. This means we strive to maintain the current release along with the two prior minor versions.
What does it mean to be End Of Life (EOL)?
Bugs are no longer backported to these versions
The core team will not be backporting and committing patches to that release's folder.
No longer supported by community developers
Bug reports for end of life versions will be answered with 'please upgrade to a supported version and confirm it is still an issue'. We will not be releasing new maintenance point releases in that line.
