Grails Version Support Schedule

We invest significantly in the development, maintenance, and support of the Grails Framework.

Our goal is to provide clients with the support they need while maintaining as much focus as possible on innovation.  In order to do that, we must limit how much effort is spent on earlier versions of the framework.

Definitions

End Of Life (EOL)

Versions of Grails that have been End Of Life’d are no longer maintained, and no future releases will be issued for these version groups.  Only the earliest versions of Grails have been EOL’d.

Maintenance

Our investment and effort for versions of Grails that are in Maintenance Mode is limited to resolving critical security advisories (there has only been one of these in Grails’ 10+ year history!) as well as custom enhancements for our clients.

Active Maintenance

This is where we actively invest, to develop and roll out new features, performance enhancements, and bug fixes.
