containerd follows SemVer. There is usually a new minor release every year.

Minor non-LTS releases are actively supported for at least one year with bug and security fixes. After that, support may be extended for an additional undefined period with security fixes only.

Some minor releases are designated as Long Term Support (LTS) releases. These are supported for at least three years with bug and security fixes, as well as patches to support its longer term maintainability (such as dependencies updates or even sometime feature backports to support new Kubernetes releases). There is at least a 6-month overlap between the end of life of an LTS release and the initial version of the next LTS release.

More information is available on the containerd website.
