Unfortunately it's not possible to continue to provide support for older stable branches of Moodle indefinitely due to the amount of work involved. This page describes the process of dropping support for older stable branches.
 
 
 
 
 
==Dropping support for 1.a.x==
 
 
 
# Decide upon the final release of 1.a.x (taking into account that generally three versions are supported at a given time)
 
# Propose a date in MDLSITE-737 for dropping support for 1.a.x 5 months after the final release
 
# Announce the final release of 1.a.x in the moodle.org news
 
# Document the final release of 1.a.x in the [[:Category:Release_notes|release notes]]
 
# Update the Moodle version message in the tracker to read: "There will not be another 1.a.x release, but critical bugs may still be backported to the branch until [''date 5 months in advance'']." (both for the [http://tracker.moodle.org/secure/project/ViewProject.jspa?pid=10011 Moodle Project] and the [http://tracker.moodle.org/secure/project/ViewProject.jspa?pid=10033 Non-core contributed modules project]).
 
# After 5 months, release 1.a.x+ and archive all 1.a.x versions, closing the stable version in the tracker (also in both projects).
 
 
 
==Dropping support for 1.6.x==
 
 
 
# Proposed date for dropping support for 1.6.x: 31 July 2009
 
# Announcement: [http://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=115616 New releases: Moodle 1.9.4, 1.8.8, 1.7.7 and 1.6.9]
 
# 1.6.9+ released and 1.6.x versions archived on 31 July 2009. 16_STABLE closed in the tracker.
 
 
 
==Dropping support for 1.7.x==
 
 
 
# Proposed date for dropping support for 1.6.x: 31 October 2009
 
# Announcement: [http://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=115616 New releases: Moodle 1.9.4, 1.8.8, 1.7.7 and 1.6.9]
