I am pleased to announce an Extended Support program for libjpeg-turbo,
which may be useful for application developers who are interested in
getting the latest & greatest bug fixes and security fixes without
upgrading to the latest release series of libjpeg-turbo. Going forward,
I will spin official releases based on the code base of one or more
previous release series (2.0.x as of this writing) and make those
Extended Support releases available to project sponsors via a private
GitHub repository.

The first Extended Support release-- 2.0.7 ESR-- is now available.

Extended Support releases have the same stringent quality controls as
current releases, and (where possible) they support the same platforms
as the latest public release in the previous release series. (Refer to
https://libjpeg-turbo.org/Documentation/OfficialBinaries.) New
Extended Support releases will be published whenever new stable releases
from the current release series are published, if there are any fixes
that are relevant to the previous release series. A previous release
series will enter the Extended Support phase when the current release
series is out of beta.

You can automatically get access to the ESR repository by sponsoring our
project through GitHub Sponsors
(https://github.com/sponsors/libjpeg-turbo) at a level of US$5 or more
per month. Organizations that sponsor our project at a level of US$1000
or more (through a one-time donation or a series of periodic donations)
will receive lifetime access to the ESR repository as well as the option
to display their organization's logo on our Sponsors page
(https://libjpeg-turbo.org/About/Sponsors). If you are already a logo
sponsor, then please contact me if you would like access to the ESR
repository.

Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
