The 7.1 release is the basis for the next supported production release for camunda BPM. It is fully supported in the camunda BPM enterprise subscription. Support includes Help Requests based on different SLAs as well as access to camunda BPM maintenance releases. Maintenance releases allow customers to get bug fixes for production systems based on the 7.1 codebase. While the community project will forge ahead for 7.2, we will backport bug fixes to the 7.1 branch and perform maintenance releases reserved for enterprise subscription customers.
There is a Migration Guide targeting existing camunda bpm 7.0 installations.
