Conservative VS Standard

What is difference between Conservative and Standard Aruba OS versions ?

I had read below link before and i understood that conservative folder contains versions which prioritize stability over new features but i got confiused because i can see in conservative folder versions later than standard folder.

Re: Conservative VS Standard

Actually i didn't get the answer yet ..

My question is how is 6.5.4.12 in conservative folder and 6.5.4.6 still in standard ?

Does any version pass through standard then conservative folder ?

Re: Conservative VS Standard

Thats correct,

 

The standard release has the lastest featureset but take some months before it comes a conservative release. Conservative releases are for customers who prioritize stability over new features.

 

Before it comes conservative it must be;

  • Deployed for a certain amount of time.
  • Deployed to a certain percentage of customers.
  • The bugs reported and pending needs to fall under a certain number

(Special thanks to cjoseph post that i give you)

 

Because 6.5.4.12 is the latest version and stable enough (meet the criteria) to be a Conservative release, you see it only in that folder.

 

Side note:

The old names were renewed in 2016. 

  • Standard was named Early Deployment
  • Conservative was named General Available
