Long-Term Support (LTS)

At Inductive Automation, we are constantly improving our software in features, functionality, and reliability. We provide Long-Term Support (LTS) for certain versions of the Ignition software for a period of time from the date of its original release. There are three categories in which an Inductive Automation stable software release can reside when it comes to provided support. They are Active, Limited, and End of Life (EOL). Releases that are announced as EOL will no longer be supported by either the development team or the support team.

The following image shows the timeline for versions 7.9, 8.0, and 8.1.

The table below shows the original release dates, LTS status, and end dates of both Active support and Limited support for all versions.
