Uniface Support Lifecycle
The Uniface product has three typical release types:
A “major release” or “version” like Uniface 10.
A “minor release” like Uniface 10.2 or 10.3.
A “maintenance release” like Uniface 10.3.02.
A Patch line Uniface 10.3.02.021
A migration process is normally not required when moving to the next maintenance release.
All Uniface releases are defined as “a.b.c.d” where:
a = major release or version numberb = minor release numberc = maintenance release numberd = patch number
Uniface patches on maintenance releases are made available every two weeks.
The last patch on a maintenance release is called a service pack.
The maintenance release plus the service pack becomes the next maintenance release: Maintenance release 10.3.02.0XX + service pack 10.3.03.000 = maintenance release 10.3.03.
The Uniface Support Lifecycle policy specifies for how long support will be available for a Uniface product. Uniface customers can use this information to track how long their version and release of Uniface will be supported. Using the information on this page, you will be able to effectively plan your migration to the next release, without any breaks in support.

** End of support means:1. No new fixes will be created and delivered anymore on the indicated release. Problems found on a release which is out of support will only be considered to be fixed on supported releases.2. No new OS ports or DBMS drivers will be provided. Currency will only be maintained on supported releases.
*** If the table does not yet show a (tentative) date for the End of support of a release you can use the following model to determine the approximate date on which support will end.– Minor releases are supported at least until 18 months after the subsequent minor release has been made available.– The last minor release of a version is supported at least until 30 months after the subsequent version has been made available.
^ Extended Support
Extended support is usually provided to enable customers applications to remain supported while moving to a newer, fully supported release.
The last previous major release is typically supported for an extended period to allow customers to migrate to the current version. As the last major release approaches the end of support date it will receive a reduced amount of new functionality, fixes and currency.
During the period of extended support, we will work with customers to find solutions to priority 1 issues that are impacting the operation of deployed applications that have been in production prior to the end of general support.
