The 2023 release strategy expanded the support window while providing more security updates.

Below is a brief summary of the 2023 – 2024 update calendar.

What is staying the same

  • core patch security releases, performance, GrapQL coverage, and high risk bug fixes
  • New features are released as independent SaaS services
  • 1 full core patch release in April 2023.
    Magento 2.4.7 will feature an extended 3 year support window
  • New ways to integrate, customise and deploy new features without making changes to the core code

What is changing

  • An increasing to five security-only patch releases for all currently supported Adobe Commerce versions keeping businesses secure and compliant.
