* Some installations have yet to upgrade to v6. As a result, we are providing a backport patch for v5.3.14. It is important to remember that v5 is no longer supported. Future security and important maintenance issues will not be patched. We strongly encourage anyone running a version outside of Long Term Support to upgrade as soon as possible to ensure the performance, accuracy, and security of your business.
