Note

The Sonatype Product Development Lifecycle (PDLC), including definitions of each stage, is fully defined in Sonatype Sunsetting Information.

The Sonatype Product Development Lifecycle (PDLC), including definitions of each stage, is fully defined in Sonatype Sunsetting Information.

Sonatype Nexus Repository releases are considered generally available and fully supported for a term of 1 year after the version's release date.

At that point, Sonatype provides extended maintenance for each Sonatype Nexus Repository version for an additional 6 months before that version is considered sunset.

For versions requiring patch releases, the full version line (e.g., 3.53.0 - 3.53.1, 3.47.0 - 3.47.1) will use the dates of the initial major release (e.g., 3.53.0 or 3.47.0) to determine when the versions will move through the PDLC process.

FAQ

Why are you sunsetting versions of Sonatype Nexus Repository 3?

Sonatype's mission is to help you develop software fearlessly. An essential part of that mission is regularly examining our solutions to ensure our customers' deployments have dependable, secure, and well-supported capabilities.

The Sonatype PDLC is designed to keep us continually improving our products, ensuring that our customers have access to our best features and functionality, and helping us provide quality support services for our features and products.

In line with that, we will be sunsetting the product versions that are out of support per Sonatype’s support policy.

I am running a sunset version of Sonatype Nexus Repository 3, can I still receive support?

Yes, Support will provide best-effort guidance to help customers adopt suggested alternatives or an upgrade path.
