When we develop addons for server releases (in my case, Bitbucket Server), for each new release I make, I need to validate compatibility with specific versions.
The list allows me to select anything from version 1.0.0 to the latest (often one more than released). However, it’s a bit hard to know what is the earliest releases that is still supported by Atlassian.
For example, right now I can see from app statistics that we have customers still running Bitbucket Server 5.8.0 - does it make sense for me to keep supporting and validating this in all new releases?
Or would it make more sense to stick to supporting the latest LTS (Enterprise) release and this way, give more reasons for customers to upgrade to a later release of Bitbucket?
I know this is currently my own choice, and I do tend to check with whatever my customers are running. But it would be nice to have a recommendation from Atlassian that could be used as a motivator to drop support for old releases.
