Thank you, Ralph.  That's helpful.

Sorry nobody answered this right away. It isn't quite that simple as we don't 
do support on a timeline basis. We generally support two major releases at a 
time. So v4 would remain supported until v6 was released.

Our original intent was to have one major release per year - so the policy 
would roughly translate to a 2 year period. However, as you have probably 
noted, v5 is very, very late from that perspective. Thus, there is no real 
timeline we can provide - only the intent that it be for two years, driven 
completely by our ability to stick to the one major release per year policy.

Is there any documentation that would indicate how long the 4.0 (or any 
particular release series) will be supported?  This would be helpful for 
establishing downstream timelines.

Thanks!
