TI Compiler Support

TI has an active, responsive E2E™ community, where support is available for TI compilers. Additional support articles:

Long-term and short-term support

Long-term support (LTS) releases are actively maintained for approximately two years with reported defects being repaired as follows:

  • Production stop defects are addressed within 2 weeks,
  • Critical defects are addressed within 60 days, and
  • Defect repairs are proactively applied to each release stream
Short-term support (STS) releases are only supported until the next release becomes available meaning that:
  • Only production stop defects may cause patch releases to be created,
  • Patch releases for STS releases will not be planned, and
  • Defect repairs will not be proactively applied to each release stream
  • For more information about the distinction between LTS and STS compiler releases, please see the article: Introduction to LTS and STS Compiler Releases
