MySQL 5.7 已經 EoL

查資料發現忘記這件事情了... 先前就有寫過 MySQL 5.7 到今年十月就 EoL 了:「MySQL 5.7 的支援只到今年十月 (Oct 2023)」。

最後一版是 2023/10/25 釋出的 5.7.44:「Changes in MySQL 5.7.44 (2023-10-25, General Availability)」。

MySQL 5.7.44 is the final release of the MySQL 5.7 series.

然後 MySQL 8.1 也是十月 EoL。

雖然目前已經有 MySQL 8.2 了,但 MySQL 8.0 是 LTS,目前預定支援到 2026 年四月 (大約還有兩年多),所以除非有需要用到 MySQL 8.2 的新功能或是特性,不然應該還是會先繼續用 MySQL 8.0...

然後翻了一下 Percona Server for MySQL,看起來還是沒有提供 ARM 的 binary 可以裝,所以在 ARM 上面的機器比較方便的還是裝 MariaDB 了...

OpenSSL 1.1.1 EoL

看到 OpenSSL 官方的公告,1.1.1 版 EoL:「OpenSSL 1.1.1 End of Life」(btw,我不知道他們為什麼網址上會放兩個 /blog/...)。

OpenSSL 1.x 與 3.x 最大的差異就是他的 license 了,1.x 版是 dual license,但這兩個 license 都與 GPL 不相容:

OpenSSL was dual-licensed under the OpenSSL License and the SSLeay License, which means that the terms of either licenses can be used. The OpenSSL License is Apache License 1.0 and SSLeay License bears some similarity to a 4-clause BSD License.

As the OpenSSL License was Apache License 1.0, but not Apache License 2.0, it requires the phrase "this product includes software developed by the OpenSSL Project for use in the OpenSSL Toolkit" to appear in advertising material and any redistributions (Sections 3 and 6 of the OpenSSL License). Due to this restriction, the OpenSSL License and the Apache License 1.0 are incompatible with the GNU GPL.

後續 3.x 的版本則改成 Apache License 2.0 了:

OpenSSL announced in August 2015 that it would require most contributors to sign a Contributor License Agreement (CLA), and that OpenSSL would eventually be relicensed under the terms of Apache License 2.0.

不過 Apache License 2.0 與 GPLv2 還是不相容 (但相容於 GPLv3),這個更換只是換成一個比較常見的 license:

The Free Software Foundation considers all versions of the Apache License to be incompatible with the previous GPL versions 1 and 2.

話說 Ubuntu 20.04 內的 OpenSSL 是 1.1.1f,看起來光是標準的 LTS (到 2025/04) 期間都得自己維護了?其他作業系統應該也會有類似的問題...

ISC DHCPD 要 EoL

看到「ISC DHCP Server has reached EOL」這個,月初的時候 ISC 宣佈了 EoL,除非有嚴重的安全性問題冒出來,不然官方打算停止維護了:

The 4.4.3-P1 and 4.1-ESV-R16-P2 versions of ISC DHCP, released on October 5, 2022, are the last maintenance versions of this software that ISC plans to publish. If we become aware of a significant security vulnerability, we might make an exception to this, but it is our intention to cease actively maintaining this codebase.

ISC 則是在推 Kea

Network and system administrators deploying DHCP in new environments should look beyond ISC DHCP for a solution, as it would be irresponsible to invest in new deployments of this software which is now end-of-life. Naturally, ISC suggests new users consider our Kea DHCP server, but there are alternatives.

從維基百科上的「Comparison of DHCP server software」這頁可以看到目前 DHCP server 的選擇。最直接的差異是,其他非 ISC 的全部都是 GPL,只有 ISC 的是 non-GPL。

不過一般不太會自己架 DHCP server,大多是用設備內建裝的跑,以後如果有機會要裝的話,也許得去熟悉 Kea 了...

Python 2 的 EoL 日期將會是 2020 年年初

在「Python 2 EOL will be 2020-01-01」這邊看到的,文章標題的連結是 mailing list 上的內容:「[Python-Dev] Python 2.7 -- bugfix or security before EOL?」。

Guido van Rossum (Python 的發明人) 在回覆關於「Python Developer’s Guide — Python Developer's Guide」上面的資訊時的說明... 大約還有一年九個多月的時間。

然後發現原來 Python 在 release 時是會發佈 PEP 的,像是「PEP 373 -- Python 2.7 Release Schedule」這樣的資訊。其他版本可以在索引頁「PEP 0 -- Index of Python Enhancement Proposals (PEPs) | Python.org」翻到。

Adobe Flash 將在 2020 年 End of Life

Adobe 發出的公告,將在 2020 年中止所有對 Flash 的支援:「Flash & The Future of Interactive Content」。

Specifically, we will stop updating and distributing the Flash Player at the end of 2020 and encourage content creators to migrate any existing Flash content to these new open formats.

然後 GoogleMicrosoft 也來補刀講兩句話:「So long, and thanks for all the Flash」、「Saying goodbye to Flash in Chrome」、「The End of an Era – Next Steps for Adobe Flash」。

Travis CI 總算要把 Trusty 當作預設環境了...

Ubuntu 14.04 (Trusty Tahr) 放出三年後,Travis CI 總算想起來該更新了:「Trusty as default Linux is coming」。

With the recent EOL of Ubuntu Precise, we are planning to begin setting the default distribution for builds to Ubuntu Trusty 14.04 on Tuesday, the 18th of July.

然後剩不到兩年又要 EoL 了... XD

離 PHP 5.5 官方中止支援不到兩個禮拜了...

PHP 網站上的「Supported Versions」可以看到 PHP 5.5 將要停止支援了:

PHP 5.6 因為是 PHP 5 的最後一個版本,有特殊待遇,時間會拉的比較長 (功能性更新多四個月,安全性更新多一年):

As it is the final PHP 5 release, support for PHP 5.6 has been extended: active support will run for an additional four months, and the security fix period has been doubled from one to two years. Other releases are unaffected.

話說 PHP 7.1 也在 alpha 階段了...
