Visual Studio 及 Team Foundation Server 產品的服務Servicing for Visual Studio and Team Foundation Server Products

適用於 Visual Studio 及 Team Foundation Server 2012 - 2018For Visual Studio and Team Foundation Server 2012 - 2018

這些產品遵循 10 年的 Microsoft 支援週期原則 (5 年的主流支援及 5 年的延伸支援),從全球發行主要產品版本 (RTW) 的日期開始。These products follow the Microsoft Support Lifecycle Policy of 10 years (5 years of Mainstream Support and 5 years of Extended Support), starting with the date the major product version is released to the world (RTW). 例如,Visual Studio 2017 於 2017 年發行;其支援週期將於 2027 年結束。For example, Visual Studio 2017 was released in 2017; its support lifecycle will end in 2027.

這些產品的服務透過「更新」執行,即產品中現有功能的新功能和累計修正程式套件。Servicing for these products is performed via “Updates” which are packages of new features and cumulative fixes for existing features in the product.

對於這些產品版本,我們會支援 RTW 版本一段時間 (如下所述),並在週期完成前支援最新的更新。For these product versions, we support the RTW version for a period of time as detailed below, and the latest Update until the lifecycle completes.

對更新的支援Support for Updates

安裝 RTW 產品的更新後,您必須在週期完成前持續升級至最新的更新,以維持在受支援的狀態。Once you install an Update over the RTW product, you must then continue to upgrade to the latest Update to remain in a supported state until the lifecycle completes.

**範例 1:**如果您有 Visual Studio 2017 15.1 版,當 15.2 版發行時,您必須移至 15.2 版才能繼續獲得支援。Example 1: If you have Visual Studio 2017 version 15.1, when 15.2 is released, you must move to 15.2 to continue being supported.

**範例 2:**如果您有 Visual Studio 2015 Update 2,當 Update 3 發行時,您必須移至 Update 3 才能繼續獲得支援。Example 2: If you have Visual Studio 2015 Update 2, when Update 3 is released, you must move to Update 3 to continue being supported.

如何取得更新How to get Updates

客戶取得更新的方式包括遵循產品中的通知更新版本,或是從 VisualStudio.comMy.VisualStudio.com 下載最新的更新。Customers can get the Updates by following in-product prompts to update their version or by downloading the latest from VisualStudio.com or My.VisualStudio.com.

Service PackService Packs

在支援週期期間,Microsoft 會將該產品的其中一項更新指定為 “Service Pack”。During the support lifecycle, Microsoft will designate one of the Updates of that product as the “Service Pack”.

  • 適用於尚未指定 Service Pack 的 Team Foundation Server 2018。For Team Foundation Server 2018, the service pack has not yet been designated.

  • Visual Studio 2017 尚未指定 Service Pack。For Visual Studio 2017, the service pack has not yet been designated. Team Foundation Server 2017 尚未指定 Service Pack。For Team Foundation Server 2017, the service pack has not yet been designated.

  • 對於 Visual Studio 2015,指定的 Service Pack 為 Update 3 搭配最新版本的  KB3165756For Visual Studio 2015, the designated Service Pack is Update 3 with the latest release of  KB3165756. Team Foundation Server 2015 以前有兩個指定的 Service Pack:Update 3 和 Update 4。For Team Foundation Server 2015, there were two designated Service Packs - Update 3 and Update 4. 請參閱生命週期原則網站的 Team Foundation Server 產品項目日期。Please see the Team Foundation Server product entry on the Lifecycle Policy site for dates.

  • Visual Studio 2013 及 Team Foundation Server 2013 的指定 Service Pack 為 Update 5。For Visual Studio 2013 and Team Foundation Server 2013, the designated Service Pack is Update 5.

  • Visual Studio 2012 及 Team Foundation Server 2012 的指定 Service Pack 為 Update 4。For Visual Studio 2012 and Team Foundation Server 2012, the designated Service Pack is Update 4.

當 Microsoft 將更新指定為 Service Pack 時,支援週期資料庫會反映支援的適當日期。When Microsoft designates an Update as a Service Pack, the Support Lifecycle Database will reflect the appropriate dates for support.

對 RTW 的支援Support for RTW

對於仍在使用 RTW 版本的客戶,Service Pack 日期是項重要的里程碑。For customers who are still on the RTW version, the Service Pack date is an important milestone. 根據  Microsoft 支援服務週期原則,在某項更新指定為 “Service Pack” 起 1 年後,將不再支援 RTW。Support for RTW will be discontinued 1 year after an Update is designated as the “Service Pack”, per the Microsoft Support Service Pack Lifecycle Policy. 仍在使用 RTW 版本的客戶應在上述情況的 1 年結束前升級至可用的最新更新,才可繼續受到支援。Customers still on the RTW version should upgrade to the latest available Update before the end of that 1 year to continue to be in a supported state.

  • 針對 Visual Studio 2017,仍使用 RTW 版本 15.0.x 的客戶會繼續獲得支援,但自指定 Service Pack 起一 (1) 年內,需要移至可用的產品最新版本。For Visual Studio 2017, customers who remain on the RTW version 15.0.x will continue to be supported until a service pack is designated, at which time, they will have one (1) year to move to the latest version of the product available.

  • 不再支援 Visual Studio 2015 及 Team Foundation Server 2015 的 RTW。For Visual Studio 2015 and Team Foundation Server 2015, RTW is no longer supported.

  • 不再支援 Visual Studio 2013 及 Team Foundation Server 2013 的 RTW。For Visual Studio 2013 and Team Foundation Server 2013, RTW is no longer supported.

  • 不再支援 Visual Studio 2012 及 Team Foundation Server 2012 的 RTW。For Visual Studio 2012 and Team Foundation Server 2012, RTW is no longer supported.
