Upgradingedit

Upgrades between minor versions of the agent, like from 3.1 to 3.2 are always backwards compatible. Upgrades that involve a major version bump often come with some backwards incompatible changes.

We highly recommend to always pin the version of elastic-apm in your requirements.txt or Pipfile. This avoids automatic upgrades to potentially incompatible versions.

End of life datesedit

We love all our products, but sometimes we must say goodbye to a release so that we can continue moving forward on future development and innovation. Our End of life policy defines how long a given release is considered supported, as well as how long a release is considered still in active development or maintenance. The table below is a simplified description of this policy.
