The Long-Term Servicing Channel (LTSC) enables teams to remain supported on a minor version for up to 18 months after release. The LTSC are separate release Channels based on the even-numbered minor version updates. An LTSC release receives security and bug fixes but not additional new features.

Visual Studio 2019 follows the Microsoft Product Fixed Lifecycle Policy of 10 years. The first 5 years of Mainstream Support provide feature updates, platform updates, security updates, and functionality fixes, and the second 5 years of Extended support provide security updates. For more information, search the Support Lifecycle Database.

Visual Studio 2017 and earlier are also supported for 10 years

The Visual Studio Community edition is only supported on the recommended latest release of the latest minor version of Visual Studio.

More information is available on the Microsoft Visual Studio website.
