OSCAR and Dependency lifecycles

The lifecycles of OSCAR and selected dependencies extend from their general release to when active development stops.

OSCAR Deb Reference Environments

The following are reference installation environments tested and recommended for installing OSCAR debs. They are not dependencies per se but rather supported combinations that worked at the time.

OSCAR and dependencies release cycles

dates are read from general release
to declared public end of life
or when the developers stopped actively fixing bugs

As systems exposed to the internet are always under attack, you are well advised to update to supported versions of OSCAR and its underlying infrastructure.
