RavenDB 4.2 came out in May 2019. It was our first LTS (long term support) edition for RavenDB and it has had a great run. All good things must come to an end, and RavenDB 4.2 is scheduled to go out of regular support on June 30, 2022.
Today, RavenDB Cloud completed the migration of the last remaining 100 or so customers from RavenDB 4.2 to RavenDB 5.2.
Everyone who is still running RavenDB 4.2 in production is encouraged to move to RavenDB 5.2 (LTS) or later.
After June 30, 2022 – everything will still work for RavenDB 4.2 instances, but we’ll not be providing support for them (nor updates, patches, etc).
Customers with extended support contracts will not be affected, but we won’t be offering extended support contracts for RavenDB 4.2 past the June 30 deadline.
Please upgrade, there are good things in store there.
