The SuiteCRM Lifecycle

SalesAgility publish new releases of SuiteCRM regularly. This enables users, the community, businesses and developers to plan out their own roadmaps knowing that they will have access to newer open source upstream capabilities as more releases are published.

Extended Support Releases (ESR) for the SuiteCRM Project going forward

7.12 will be an Extended Support Release, with a full 18 months of support following the release of SuiteCRM 8.0. This will provide our clients, community, and partners time to transition to the new and improved SuiteCRM.

In addition, with the release of SuiteCRM 7.12, extended support for SuiteCRM 7.10 will come to an end and it will move to extended security support only, until the end of January 2022.

The initial releases of SuiteCRM 8 will have a shorter support period, with plans for smaller feature releases to be published more often to help drive development forward.
