Recently, I came across endoflife.date, which is a quite useful database of product end-of-life dates. While it also includes hardware products (e.g., various iPhone models), its current main focus is software products, in particular those used in (enterprise) software development, such as Java, Spring, or Angular, or infrastructure and runtime environments like Docker or the Apache HTTP Server.

A comprehensive, searchable collection of lifetimes for library and framework versions can come in handy when assessing – and potentially improving – the future maintainability of a software product or project using such frameworks and libraries as dependencies. This is especially true for enterprise environments, where update cycles typically are longer and long-term support is a key aspect when considering introducing new software and new dependency versions.
