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.


Unless otherwise stated, LTS releases are maintained for at least two years after their release. When a new major release is made available, the current LTS release goes into maintenance mode. For more information about maintenance mode, see our Maintenance policy on the corporate website

Feature releases

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

When a new LTS or Feature release is available, the current Feature release is declared end-of-life either immediately after the release of the new major version or after a grace period. The grace period is intended to support migration. The duration of the grace period and any maintenance releases, if provided, that are delivered within that period are determined by Magnolia. 


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.
