Did you know? All about LTS!

With the release of 9.0, we introduced a new concept: long-term support (LTS) versions. It means that every year, at a predictable, scheduled time, we will produce a feature release that will be supported for 15 months. The first such version was 9.0. 

Version support follows these rules: 

  • LTS versions are released in Q1 each year, and are supported for 15 months (until Q2 next year). 
  • memoQ v9.3 (released in Q1 2020), supported until June 2021. 
  • The current LTS version is 9.7, supported until June 2022. 
  • The latest minor version is always supported.
