Magento continually strives to find the right balance between making product upgrades simple and predictable and delivering improvements and new features to early adopters faster. Over the last year, we have refined how we deliver software to support this balance. For additional information, refer to our release policy.
Magento releases security and functional patches for each supported release line of Magento Commerce every quarter.

1If you take the 2021 Q2 2.3.x release line, you must update to PHP 7.4 since PHP 7.3 reaches end-of-life in December 2021. There will not be a 2.4.3 release in 2021 Q2.

We have introduced a new policy that applies to a previous, supported Magento release line.
Pre-release is General Availability code that is available to Magento Commerce merchants and all partners two weeks before General Availability. It allows for quicker deployment of code before General Availability.
Beta is non-General Availability code that is available to all partners. It allows for extra time to review code and affected components.
