11 11  * If you still haven't found the answer, post a question on the [[Mailing Lists or Forums>>dev:Community.MailingLists]]. Please bear in mind that people on the list are people who are contributing to XWiki in their own time. Also you'll find people are more likely and prompt to answer your questions if you yourself participate and answer other's questions over time. This is a participation ecosystem.
12 12  * You can also consider sending a message on the [[IRC Channel>>dev:Community.IRC]]. However we recommend using the mailing lists in most cases since the IRC channel is used mostly by developers to coordinate XWiki development and mailing lists allow everyone to answer in its own time and without pressure.

14 +{{info}}Note that the XWiki Community only supports the last 2 versions of XWiki Projects. The rationale for this is:
15 +* We don't want to over-burden the developers to have to support more than 2 development branches. Each branch slows down the overall XWiki development.
16 +* This is open source software and free and we consider free users can contribute back by helping us test the newest versions by upgrading. If they want support for their older version in production they have the possibility to ask companies for [[professional support>>#ProfessionalSupport]].
17 +
18 +As a consequence:
19 +* You won't find documentation for old versions on this web site
20 +* You won't find maintained source code for old versions
21 +* People on the community lists will ask you to upgrade to a newer version when you discover an issue that is fixed in a newer version than the one you're using
