How long will a Zend PHP runtime receive updates?
Zend PHP runtimes correspond directly to their applicable php.net release. Zend PHP runtimes will receive updates until their corresponding PHP version reaches end of life. At that point, ongoing updates are available to those with a Zend PHP LTS contract.
How often is a trial Zend PHP runtime updated?
Zend PHP trial runtimes that do not correspond to an EOL PHP version will receive monthly updates unless there are no releases that month, or a critical CVE prompts an earlier release.
How can I get updates after my runtime reaches EOL?
For those using an end of life Zend PHP runtime, ongoing updates and support are available via a Zend PHP LTS contract.
Can I get support for a non-LTS version?
Yes! Zend offers full-service support and guidance for non-LTS PHP versions. Please contact us for more information.
