i’m using an application based on CakePHP 2.x and have a question regarding Long Term Support, because CakePHP 4.x seems to be released soon. In your Roadmap there is the following official statement:
We recognize that there are still a number of applications running on 2.x so we plan on supporting 2.x with:
Bug fixes for 12 months after the release of 4.0.0.
My question is, what is the meaning of Bug fixes in relation to the essential underlying software stack on the server?
My server is running with the following configuration:
Of course I know that supporting upgrades to future higher major versions is not self-evident. I’m simply talking about UPDATES until EOL of the different components. So what is with the currently supported latest major versions? Will CakePHP 2.x receive Bug fixes when there are problems after updating the underlying software stack? Or is this not part of the Long Term Support?
Thank your for listening and I hope this question can actuall be answered.
