Adobe Commerce beta releases

Adobe Commerce beta programs are a way for merchants to get access to prerelease features and code, provide feedback, and guide the future of Adobe Commerce. There are two types of beta programs:

  • Public Beta: A public beta program is available to all Adobe Commerce customers and partners
  • Private Beta: A private beta program may require an approval based on qualifying criteria in order to participate
Beta releases may contain defects and are provided “AS IS” without warranty of any kind. Adobe will have no obligation to maintain, correct, update, change, modify or otherwise support (via Adobe Support Services or otherwise) the beta releases. Customers are advised to use caution and not to rely in any way on the correct functioning or performance of the beta releases and/or any accompanying documentation or materials. Features and APIs in beta are subject to change without notice. Accordingly, any use of the beta releases is entirely at the customer’s own risk.

Benefits of participating

Getting early access to features that Adobe is developing provides customers and partners with the ability to provide feedback, shape product development, and prepare to adopt new capabilities before general availability.
