LINSTOR is a young project and is developing fast. Each release of LINSTOR comes with carefully tested migration scripts for the database. We recommend updating to the latest LINSTOR release at least once a year. Also, LINSTOR is not in the data path, and therefore can be updated easily. No scheduled downtime for the services (VMs, containers) is required to upgrade LINSTOR to the latest version.

We guarantee that new LINSTOR releases will work with Java-8 until March 2022. From April 2022 we will require Java-11 as runtime.
