If you are adventurous, You can always continue to run older, unsupported product versions. If you run into an issue that K2 does not have an existing code fix for, you must be on a version that is within its two year support window in order to receive new code fixes.

It is highly recommended that you install the latest version to get the most up to date fixes and features of K2.

Please contact K2Support@jeylabs.com should you have any queries around extended support, upgrade, consolidation or migration. Check out our K2 CoE for support options.
