Why should you upgrade?
SilverStripe is being developed all the time. The core team at SilverStripe as well as many contributors around the world are working hard to make SilverStripe even better. SilverStripe version 4 is on the horizon with many new exciting features.
With every major release, existing websites need to be upgraded to keep the security updates coming.
Only SilverStripe versions 3.5 and newer get support
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 released a support timeline on their website which helps to plan necessary upgrades to existing sites.
With the stable release of version 4, only versions 3.5 and newer will receive security updates. This means that all older versions are not maintained anymore and that no more security updates will be released for those versions.
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 version. New versions usually also include improvements to the administration interface which make managing your website even easier.
