Update Cycles

Major Updates

Major updates will have a release time of every 6 to 8 weeks. Major versions have the addition of new functions, features and bug fixes.

Medium Updates

Medium updates are those updates prior to a major release that allow the adoption of new features, these updates are every 3 to 4 weeks.

Minor Updates

Minor updates are the most frequent and are those updates that allow us to correct problems with some functions and these updates are presented every 1 or 2 weeks.

The time for the release of these updates is relative, since there are corrections or problems that must be solved immediately or a version must be published urgently due to security problems and/or defective functionality.
