Upgrade your Silverstripe Site

Why should you upgrade your Silverstripe site?

Silverstripe is being developed all the time. The core team at Silverstripe Ltd as well as many contributors around the world are working hard to make Silverstripe even better.

Every new version comes with security updates and many new and exciting features. The current version 4 of Silverstripe was released in November 2017 and has improved usability and flexibility for content authors massively.

But not only the framework and CMS have received improvements. Also the many modules available get regular bug fixes and security updates that make sure your site is running at its best.

Old versions are not supported

After adopting semantic versioning with version 3.2, the release cycle of Silverstripe has become more reliable and more predictable.

But it also means that older versions of Silverstripe are not maintained for as long as they used to be. Silverstripe Ltd has published a release roadmap on their website which helps to plan necessary upgrades to existing sites.

Silverstripe 3 has reached its end-of-life in September 2021. Now only the latest two minor releases of Silverstripe 4 are supported.

When support ends for a specific version, there will not be any further security updates for that version. This means that a website running on that old version needs to be upgraded to make sure it is still secure.

In order to keep your website up-to-date with the latest features and security releases, we recommend upgrading any old websites to the latest Silverstripe release.
