Thank you very much to TiDB for maintaining high-efficiency iterative updates. Is there a service cycle schedule for each version?
Additionally, it feels like there are too many LTS versions. 7.5 just came out, and now I see the 8.1 version plan.

In a production environment, you can consider versions 6.5.x, 7.1.x, and 7.5.x.

I also feel this way, the version updates are too many and too fast :grin:

Starting from version 6, there are two LTS versions each year, one in the middle of the year and one at the end of the year, such as 6.1, 6.5, 7.1, 7.5. Many useful features introduced in version 7.6 are expected to be in 8.0 GA, so let’s look forward to 8.1 LTS.

It is recommended to place it in a more prominent position on the documentation page.
