I'm sending notice that the 1.6 release line will reach End-Of-Life by
Thursday 10 June - next month. As per our community policy, there will be

Should you want to keep running 1.6 and be in need of support or
maintenance, you could try contacting one of the parties listed on the page

line which will receive community releases until October 04, 2022 or the
1.8 release line which will see community support until September 04, 2022.
(For releases 1.8 and newer, only 2 years of community support have been

now released on a yearly basis.) For community support until 2023,
upgrading to 1.9 is advised, which is expected to be released later this
