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 Developers only officially supports the last 2 versions of XWiki Projects (the last stable version and the version in development). 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.

15 +Note that the XWiki Developers only officially supports the following 3 versions:
16 +* The latest stable version from the last [[XWiki Cycle>>dev:Community.VersioningAndReleasePractices]] (e.g. 5.4.5). This is the most stable version and is what we recommend to use in production.
17 +* The latest stable version from the current XWiki Cycle (e.g. 6.0). This is the version recommended if you wish to try out the new features from the current Cycle. It's possible to use those in production but you have to understand that it contains relatively recent new features that haven't been through a long stabilization process so their stability may vary. As the Cycle progresses the stability increases too.
18 +* The latest development version from the current XWiki Cycle (e.g. 6.1-milestone-1). This is the version to use if you want to test the really latest feature and provide feedback to the XWiki development team and help us stabilize the version.

20 +The rationale for supporting only 3 versions is:
21 +* We don't want to over-burden the developers to have to support more than 3 development branches, it's already a lot. Each branch slows down the overall XWiki development.
16 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>>#HProfessionalSupport]].
