depends....on what you mean by support..and WHAT support.  if you are
thinking freeradius-users mailing list, then that depends on the mix
of people on there.... i think that 2.x is close enough to 3.x that MOST
things will be the unlang etc....but what i believe will happen
will be similar to 1.x to 2.x - as more people move to 3.x then the
support for 2.x will drop away.... given a year or two, anyone asking about
2.0.x or 2.1.x will probably be told to use 2.2.x or 3.x  and 1.x queries
will be just TOTALLY ignored :-)

when 3.x is finally released, we will probably move wholesale to it
so my 'on hand' 2.x systems will be gone...and I'll be telling people
to upgrade to 3.x  :-)

there were SOME 1.x released (security/bug) - i'd expect, in short term
that such will happen with 2.2.x - but anything that needs the new process
engine etc will be 3.x - no backport
