The end of life date for Spark 3.3 will be extended, as we want to honor the rule - we support runtime for two full years after it has been announced as GA. So please expect the end of life date for spark 3.3 around February 2025.
In 2024, we plan to fully deprecate runtimes based on Spark 3.1 and Spark 3.2.
Spark 3.4.1 in Synapse is available (in synapse studio) behind a feature flag (https://ms.web.azuresynapse.net/en/?showSpark34=true). This flag will be removed in the upcoming days, with further announcements.
Note: Spark 3.4 will be in Public Preview stage in Synapse, and GA is planned for 2024. We do not have yet the full list of libraries. But, you can check Java/Scala and R libraries (these libraries will remain the same) here https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/fabric/data-engineering/runtime-1-2. Python packages will be updated during public preview stage.
Hope this helps. Do let us know if you any further queries.
