Product lifetime policy update

There was no clear policy on DataObjects.Net product lifetime in the past. Now we define such policy. Each major DataObjects.Net release is supported for 18 months. Within this period we will accept bug reports and make bug-fix releases. After product lifetime expires you might still use it "as is". Certain versions might have this period expanded with proper announcement.

Currently we support 3 major DataObjects.Net releases: 4.4, 4.5 and 4.6.

The following table shows when they would go out of support:
  • 4.4    April 2013
  • 4.5    October 2013
  • 4.6    April 2014
As a special exception we extended 4.4 lifetime to make it easy to migrate to newer versions.
The last 4.4 release will be available in April 2013.
