Customers also have the option of using non-long-term support releases that appeal to customers with highly competitive application development and delivery strategies. They enable accelerated access to new features and functionality. Customers can migrate from one non-long-term support release to another non-long-term support release more frequently than they would from a long-term support release to another. This ability to consume versions more quickly gives customers enhanced freedom to add new features and functionality to their OpenEdge applications.
OpenEdge 12.2 comes with the introduction to a new product lifecycle for a long-term support (LTS) release that enables customers to realize the benefits of OpenEdge while continuing to receive technical support for several years. This gives customers greater operational stability and longevity on a release while allowing informed, confident decisions to modernize at your own pace.
