LTS

Since PureBasic 5.20, we introduced a new LTS suffix after the version name. Some of you wondered what it means, and what was the purpose of it. Basically, a LTS (Long Term Support) version will be supported for 2 years trough bug fixes release without any command or compiler modification. If you need stability in your development, you can choose to stick to an LTS version and then when the support is over go to the next one. We will provide clear migration path when going from one LTS version to another one. The advantage here is you don’t have to worry about code adpation when developping and still have stabilisation releases to have a rock solid development enviromnent. The disadvantage is you don’t get the new features of new major release until the next LTS version is out. That’s a balance to find and a decision to make, but now the choice is yours !

    Hi Fred. As long as these new features will still be available for download as beta or non-LTS versions, this model sounds good, and could work well for PureBasic. Like you said, a good balance between stability and rapid language expansion.
