Today the engineering team released Enterprise Edition 4.2.0 with a limited set of tested and supported stack components.

There has been some concern about what the plan is for the final supported stack. I am starting this thread to have that conversation. I am not on the team that makes decisions around the supported stack, so nothing I say is official, but I can hopefully answer some questions.

* This is the same strategy we used in the last few releases to balance timeliness with fully supported and tested deployments.
* The components of the supported and tested stacks for 4.2.0 are the stacks most widely used by our customers.
* Further components will be tested and supported in the next two service packs: 4.2.1 and 4.2.2.
* Those releases will probably not happen until early next year.
* There have been a lot of concerns over PostgreSQL not being on the supported stack list. That might be a mistake. I am looking into it.
* We have not released a formal plan for what will eventually be supported because we are still gathering customer feedback and making those decisions. We needed to get the initial release out before finalizing that plan.

We are very excited about this release. We believe it is the most stable and feature-rich release of Alfresco ever. We look forward to seeing how you put it to use!
