What's an LTS branch?

While we share frequent releases on our GitHub repositories with the latest and greatest features, we also offer a stable branch—the LTS branch—that only gets critical bug fixes and security patches. This branch provides critical updates with minimal impact to your device’s code. The LTS and master branches provide you with the flexibility to build stable solutions while still accessing the latest technology and Github issue support.
