Disclaimer: This document lists the targeted (not committed) EBF release dates and the targeted fixed CR list for each EBF. Please be aware that the purpose of this posting is solely to provide you, our customers with estimated release dates and targeted CR lists. Sybase does not commit to releasing EBFs on the specified dates or to including the CR fixes in the said EBF. While every effort will be made to meet the said targets, changes can occur at any time. It is also possible (although unlikely) that Sybase may decide not to release an EBF that was previously scheduled for release.

- Release Terminology:
- EBF: An official software release from Sybase. The term applies to ASE releases. An EBF number uniquely identifies a given release on an individual platform.
- ESD: An official release from Sybase that addresses several bugs in a currently supported release. An ESD # is typically generic across platforms. ESDs typically do not contain new functionality. Bug fixes in ESDs are cumulative for a given major release. ESDs must be installed over the base GA release.
- GA (General Availability): The initial release of a new, version of Sybase software. This release typically contains several new features, in addition to bug fixes.
- IR (Interim Release): This type of release contains all the fixes in previous ESDs together with other bug fixes. IRs must be installed over their corresponding GA release. For example, 18.104.22.168 must be installed over the base 12.5 GA release or one of its ESDs.
- MR (Maintenance Release): This type of release is a full replacement for GA releases. As it is a shelf copy replacement for the original GA release, it may be installed directly to a new location or by overlaying an existing release. This type of release may contain several new features in addition to bug fixes.
- SP (Support Package): Software patches currently known to Sybase customers as ESD (Electronic Software Delivery) following major or minor releases will be referred to as SP (support package), with numbers of up to three digits. All major and minor releases will have a minimum of 2 years of mainstream maintenance, with a minimum of 1 year overlap with next successive release. For more information please refer to this page.
- EBF entries in italics have already been released and are unlikely to be updated after the last modified date shown.
- Updates may be made prior to the next scheduled update of this posting. For example, when an EBF is actually released or if there are major delays to an EBF previously scheduled to release shortly.
- EBF cover letters contain the final list of bug fixes and correct bug descriptions in a release. The CR lists above are only targets and not final.
- The release schedule is based on the general assumption that EBFs across platforms will be released around the same timeframe, if not on the same date. Major exceptions will be noted in the Notes column of the table.
