Magnolia releases

In the Magnolia 5 branch, we support each major release for at least two years after the release of the following major version. For example, Magnolia 5.6 is supported for at least two years after the release of 5.7.

From version 6 onwards, Magnolia classifies major releases (x.y) into Long-Term Support (LTS) and Feature releases.

LTS

Unless otherwise stated, LTS releases are maintained for at least two years after their release. When a new major release is made available, t he current LTS release goes into maintenance mode.

The duration of the maintenance mode is determined by Magnolia. For more information about the maintenance mode, see our Maintenance policy on the corporate website.

Feature releases

Feature releases are fully maintained until the following LTS or Feature release is available.

When a new LTS or Feature release is available, we will ship one more maintenance release after which the current Feature release can be declared end-of-life:

  • Immediately with the final maintenance release.
  • After an extended end-of-life period, to support migration.

End-of-life

When the supported life of a version ends, we announce end-of-life (EoL) on this page. We do not provide formal support, bug fixes or security fixes for customers using an EoL version of Magnolia. However, we do our best to assist customers who encounter issues with EoL versions of Magnolia. DX Core customers who run an EoL version can use their support contract to verify issues, ask questions about the product, and get help with migration to a newer, supported version of the product.

Enterprise customers with a valid support contract can still use Magnolia support for questions and issues related to EoL versions.

Extended end-of-life

During the extended end-of-life (EEoL) period, which is intended to support migration, we only address critical stability and security issues. The start of this period is determined by Magnolia and announced below on this page.
