About feature releases

This is a feature release, which means that it will be supported for 6 months after the release date or 2 months after the release of a succeeding feature release (whichever date is later). It also means that if you are running a previous feature release (such as versions 5 F1 or 5 F2), you have 2 months to upgrade to version 6.1 if you want to keep running on a supported release.

For a full description of long-term-supported and feature releases, open the SPS product page on the Support Portal and navigate to Product Life Cycle & Policies > Product Support Policies > Software Product Support Lifecycle Policy.
