Release Information and Schedule

Liferay generally aims to do a new release every 12-18 months, with update releases inbetween each major release.  Each release has an associated name (for example Liferay Social Office 2.0 CE GA1) and numeric version (for example 6.2.10).  You can read details about the versioning and the release process on the Versioning Policy page.

When new releases are planned or released, they will appear on this page.  To get notified, subscribe to the RSS feed at the bottom of the page, or get involved with our various community programs to keep abreast of latest developments.

Getting Support

Support for Liferay Portal comes from the wonderful and active community, from which Liferay itself was nurtured into the enterprise offering it is today. Please visit the community pages to find out more about the myriad avenues through which you can get your questions answered.

Liferay and its worldwide partner network also provide services, support, training, and consulting around its flagship enterprise offering, Liferay Portal EE, which is generally released 1-2 months after each Community Edition release.
