Glad it helped.

see staging site <>
and give feedback :)

> Hi,
> There is no web page listing EOL status. The general rule is that we work on three versions
at the same time.
> There is the 6.x version which is the “stable” branch where we release new features.
> Then there is the 5.5 branch which will most likely receive CVE security updates, but
we cannot guarantee other bug fixes.
> And finally we work on the next major release 7.x in master branch (never released).
> So for you guys on 5.3.1 you have a back-compat upgrade path to released 5.5.3, and should
see a 5.5.4 if a really critical issue is found.
> There is no EOL date decided for 5.x yet, but once we start talking about releasing 7.x
you should prepare to upgrade.
> Note: There may also be downstream companies out there offering LTS for older Solr versions,
with patches etc.

>> What are the officially supported versions of Solr for security updates?  We're running
5.3.1 but there hadn't been any updates to 5.x in a couple months and I was trying to find
the official support/EOL status info to present to management to show we're either still actively
secure or if we needed to expend resources to upgrade from 5.x to 6.x versions.
