Definitions

Software Product means any version of Liferay Portal.

End of Life Date means the date on which Liferay ceases to provide Software Maintenance for a Software Product of a Major Version or Minor Version.

First Ship Date means the date on which Liferay first makes available, for download or sale, a Major Version or Minor Version.

Major Version means a release of Liferay software incorporating major changes in architecture, APIs (as part of the deprecation process), or internal schema, as well as major changes in functionality, new features, and bug fixes. A new Major Version is identified by a version number where the number to the left of the first decimal in the version number is incremented (example: 1.x.x to 2.x.x).

Minor Version means a release of Liferay software incorporating minor changes in architecture, APIs (as part of the deprecation process), or internal schema, as well as some changes in functionality, new features, and bug fixes. A new Minor Version is identified by a version number where the number to the right of the first decimal in the version number is incremented (example: 1.0.x to 1.1.x).

Maintenance Versions or Service Packs bundles the most recently available bug fixes and security and stability improvements. A new Maintenance Version is a Major Version or Minor Version packaged with the latest fix pack and bundled Marketplace apps.
