Release series Planned release

To ensure that your production go-live uses the most up-to-date stable release, follow this guideline.

Production go-live Recommended release series
Less than 3 months v2.14 (Stable)
More than 3 months v2.17 (Preview)

If your production go-live is more than three months from now, start your development and testing with the preview release series. By the time your production is ready to go live, the current stable release series (which is based on the preview release series you used for development and testing) will be available. By following this guideline, you ensure that your application is developed with the latest available features, enhancements, and fixes.
