WS Product End of Life (EOL) Policy

WS may initiate an End Of Life (EOL) process for a product. When a product has been EOL'd, the product is no longer supported or available. A product will be automatically EOL'd when a new major version is released that is 2 Major versions newer. For example, when Version 3.0.0 is released, version 1.x is EOL'd. WS encourages all customers to use the most recent product versions. The table below specifies product EOL dates.
