Adobe Commerce lifecycle policy

For Adobe Commerce 2.4 and subsequent releases:

  • To better streamline our lifecycle policy, Adobe provides quality fixes to the 2.4 release line until the end of support date of the PHP version upon which it is based. A customer can access quality fixes by contacting Adobe Commerce Support or through the self-serve Quality Patches Tool if their version is still eligible for quality support. Refer to the table below for the End of Software Support dates for Adobe Commerce release lines.

  • Adobe provides security fixes only through the latest patch or security patch release, even if a customer’s version is still eligible for quality support. Unlike quality fixes, security fixes cannot be backported to previous minor releases nor to previous patch releases within supported minor releases.

  • For critical security issues, such as zero-day vulnerabilities, Adobe provides hotfixes for all customers on a supported version, even if they are not on the latest patch or security patch release. It is important to note that a hotfix is not a catch-all and does not address all the security issues that would be fixed by upgrading to the latest release.
