Backwards Compatibility Strategy

I didn't find anything about backwards compatibility in neither the FAQ nor the user's guide. Is the strategy documented somewhere? I found a few posts that mentioned backwards compatibility. Here is the main one…

Activiti is stable as it gets. All API's defined since 5.0 are guaranteed not to change. If needed, we introduce backwards compatibility and deprecation strategies with clear documentation.

If an API were to marked as deprecated, how long would it continue to be supported? Is that measured in terms of years, or number of releases, or are such things decided on a case by case basis?
