Release information

How do I interpret the release milestones on GitHub?

Our software is developed and released in a public, open source, and collaborative manner. Many features and fixes are done by SilverStripe Ltd, other work is contributed by our community, and everyone is involved in ideas and discussions. This means the timing and features of a release are subject to frequent change. What we can do is ensure all components are publicly visible, described when done, and labelled if they're likely to be worked on. Each release comprises hundreds of tickets. Milestone tickets on github.com have a status (open or closed), and can be flagged.

Upgrading and changelog

Keep an eye on security advisories and changes to installed modules. A changelog is also included with each new release and outlines all historical changes included in the latest version of software. Composer helps manage these changes and allows you to focus on developing rather than upgrading.
