Roadmap of SFTPPlus MFT Releases

Release Schedule

Regular minor releases are based on a rolling update development model at intervals varying between 30 to 60 days.

Critical-bugfix releases are made as soon as a defect is fixed, usually one week after it has been initially discovered and reported.

Security issues have top priority and a fix is released in one or two days.
