Learn about the Wavefront policy for retiring features.

Product versions and features move to end-of-life as part of the normal software development lifecycle, security improvements, and other factors. To support planning for upgrades, this document provides information on upcoming lifecycle changes. While every effort is made to provide sufficient notice of changes, security issues or other factors may occasionally lead to accelerated end-of-life dates.

Lifecycle Stages

To help you plan for end-of-life dates, this page uses the following terms:

  • Deprecated. Feature, component, platform, or functionality that may no longer be efficient or safe. Deprecated features are supported but no longer recommended. Wavefront eventually removes deprecated features. Bug fixes are at Wavefront’s discretion. In particular, Wavefront may require migration to the new feature in lieu of fixing a bug in a deprecated feature. Wavefront identifies deprecated features in the release notes for the release in which the feature is deprecated. For Wavefront proxy, the table below lists deprecated versions.
  • End-of-life. No longer supported. Feature, component, platform, or functionality is no longer supported and may be removed from the product at any time.
