Starting today, long-term support (LTS) will be provided on Amazon Aurora MySQL-Compatible Edition 3 (with MySQL 8.0 compatibility) on the Aurora MySQL 3.04 (compatible with MySQL 8.0.28) minor version. Database clusters that use LTS releases can stay on the same minor version for at least three years. During the lifetime of an Aurora MySQL LTS release, new patches introduce fixes to critical matters such as security issues. These patches don't include any new features. 

For more details about Aurora MySQL 3.04, LTS, and how to stay on that minor version, refer to the Aurora MySQL 3.04 launch announcement and LTS documentation. This LTS release is available in all AWS regions where Aurora MySQL is available.

Amazon Aurora is designed for unparalleled high performance and availability at global scale with full MySQL and PostgreSQL compatibility. It provides built-in security, continuous backups, serverless compute, up to 15 read replicas, automated multi-Region replication, and integrations with other AWS services.
