TI Compiler Support

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
