Tendenci Lifecycle for Support
Products will reach the end of the life cycle for various reasons. Technology moves fast, and better, stronger features may be available. Security changes and developments that were built on prior support may no longer be available. Please contact us with any questions as we are here for you.
What version of Tendenci is your site running now? Please upgrade your site to the latest version of Tendenci. https://tendenci.readthedocs.io/en/latest/upgrade/upgrade-to-tendenci14.html also check out Tendenci Changelog–a chronological list of user-facing changes made to the Tendenci platform. You can also stay in the loop and keep an eye out for our Update Alerts! Wondering What Version of Tendenci Do You Have?
Every Tendenci product has a lifecycle. The lifecycle begins when a product is released and ends when it is no longer supported. Knowing key dates in this lifecycle helps you make informed decisions about when to upgrade or make other changes to your software. Here are the details of the Tendenci lifecycle.

Tendenci is built on the Django framework. As such, Tendenci support mirrors that of the DjangoProject lifecycle. https://www.djangoproject.com/download/#supported-versions
See the Django-supported versions policy for detailed guidelines about what fixes will be backported.
These release series no longer receive security updates or bug fixes.
Here's what the future Django roadmap looks like:
If you are working with an independent Open Source Tendenci Developer and self-hosting - contact them first as they will know your site and have the same documentation we use in-house. Support your local open-source developers!
Is security a concern? Consider hosting with our InfoSec / DevOps professionals in our Tendenci Cloud at Amazon Web Services.
Legal Restraints on Hosting in the US? We get it. Yes, some countries have physical hosting requirements for legal reasons. Not your fault. And YES, absolutely, we can help you set up your Tendenci site on your servers. In fact, local developers can probably set up a fully-featured Tendenci Membership website (PDF download) by reading https://tendenci.readthedocs.io/en/latest/ and downloading the code from PyPI or GitHub.
