|+# GitLab Maintenance Policy|
|+GitLab is a fast moving and evolving project. We currently don't have the|
|+resources to support many releases concurrently. We support exactly one stable|
|+release at any given time.|
|+GitLab follows the [Semantic Versioning](http://semver.org/) for its releases:|
|+* **Major version**: Whenever there is something significant or any backwards|
|+ incompatible changes are introduced to the public API.|
|+* **Minor version**: When new, backwards compatible functionality is introduced|
|+ to the public API or a minor feature is introduced, or when a set of smaller|
|+ features is rolled out.|
|+* **Patch number**: When backwards compatible bug fixes are introduced that fix|
|+ incorrect behavior.|
|+The current stable release will receive security patches and bug fixes|
|+(eg. `5.0` -> `5.0.1`). Feature releases will mark the next supported stable|
|+release where the minor version is increased numerically by increments of one|
|+(eg. `5.0 -> 5.1`).|
|+We encourage everyone to run this release and are trying to keep the update|
|+procedures simple and reliable.|
