Can you clarify the statement "only latest ConfigMgr version will be supported". We are running version 1906 and have no plans to upgrade to 1910 for another 3 months. Will 1906 current branch be supported to service ESU?

@robertoX https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/configmgr/core/plan-design/configs/supported-operating-systems-for-... covers the story on ConfigMgr with ESU. At the time that Win7 reaches end of life, 1910 will be the latest released CM CB version. 1906 may work to deploy security patches released under the ESU program but no validation has been done. When CM CB version 2002 releases, we will validate that it can be used to deploy security patches released under the ESU program. No further validation will be done on 1910 and so forth. So, in short, validation will only be done on the latest released CM CB version. Previous versions may continue to work but will no longer be validated.
