The Release Process

API Platform follows the Semantic Versioning strategy. A new minor version is released every six months, and a new major version is released every two years, along with a last minor version on the previous major one with the same features and an upgrade path.

For example:

  • version 3.0 has been released on 15 September, 2022;
  • version 3.1 has been released on 23 January, 2023;
  • version 3.2 has been released on 12 October, 2023;
  • version 3.3 will be released on March, 2024;
  • versions 3.4 and 4.0 will be released on September, 2024.

Maintenance

3 versions are maintained at the same time:

  • stable (currently the 3.2 branch): regular bugfixes are integrated in this version
  • old-stable (are the last 2 minor branches: currently 3.0 and 3.1 branches): security fixes are integrated in this version, regular bugfixes are not backported in it
  • development (main branch): new features target this branch

Older versions (1.x, 2.6…) are not maintained. If you still use them, you must upgrade as soon as possible.

There’s a crowdfunding for a 2.7 LTS version.

The old-stable branch is merged in the stable branch on a regular basis to propagate security fixes. The stable branch is merged in the development branch on a regular basis to propagate security and regular bugfixes.

New major versions of API Platform are released every 2 years. New minor versions of API Platform are released every 6 months.

The latest minor version of a major branch contains all the new features introduced in the first version of the next major, but also contains deprecated features which are removed in the next major branch.
