Synopsys builds its products on selected versions of each operating system. Operating system vendors guarantee that applications compiled on a lower minor version of an operating system will be binary compatible with higher minor versions of the same operating system. This means that an application supported on OS version X.Y will run on OS version X.Z. For example, a tool supported on RHEL 7.3 will run on RHEL 7.4. Synopsys relies on the OS vendor's binary compatibility claim and supports running higher minor versions. Synopsys also relies on the vendor’s binary compatibility claim on support across major versions. For example, a tool supported on RHEL 7.x will run on RHEL 8.x.
