What is the trade-off of using an unsupported DBR version on my cluster?

I do not want to upgrade my cluster every one month. I am looking for stability over new features.

The strong recommendation is not to use an unsupported version of DBR on your cluster.

For production workloads where you don't welcome newer versions, then check the Databricks LTS DBR versions.

if using an unsupported version then you don't receive support from Databricks also bug fixes and improvements are not backported.
