While continuing its extensive R&D efforts for future versions, 4D keeps its latest versions available for as long as possible after initial release, providing as many resources as possible to help migrate from one version to the next.

Below is a timetable of our product lines and dates, updated regularly, to help you plan for your updates, purchases, and support inquiries.


If you have any questions or need additional details, please contact your 4D representative. You may also be interested in our Maintenance program, which allows you to free yourself of any time constraints in the lifecycle of your applications.
