Supported Service Fabric versions

Make sure your cluster is always running a supported Azure Service Fabric version. A minimum of 60 days after we announce the release of a new version of Service Fabric, support for the previous version ends. You'll find announcements of new releases on the Service Fabric team blog.

Refer to the following documents for details on how to keep your cluster running a supported Service Fabric version:
