How often do the Splunk software product and patch maintenance releases occur? Is there a standard schedule for them or some consistent frequency that be expected for the various releases?

Splunk delivers Major (X.x.x), minor (x.X.x) and maintenance (x.x.X) releases on a different schedule which can fluctuate depending on the circumstances (product issues) and the feature roadmap.

There is no hard set schedule, however we are trying to maintain the following frequency for our release cycle: - The Major releases are scheduled on a 12-18 months timeframe. - The Minor releases are scheduled every 6-8 months. - The Maintenance releases are usually available on a 6-8 weeks timeframe.

The Maintenance releases are available to provide bug fixes and we do not have any schedule for Patches or Hotfix. In case, we would have to deliver a patch, we will make sure to notify our Users accordingly.

They use to publish a road map. All I can now find is this - http://www.splunk.com/page/road_map_vote

Yeah, I miss the published road map. It was quite useful to know whether or not I should invest time in a custom solution, forwarder upgrades, etc.
