TYPO3 Roadmap: Versions at a glance

The current TYPO3 versions are: Version 12.4.15 und 11.5.37 and ELTS Versions 10.4.45 und 9.5.48

New TYPO3 versions are currently released approximately every 18 months. The current versions 12.4 and 11.5 offer technical support as LTS (Long Term Support) for three years in each case. An extension of the support (Extended Long Term Support, ELTS) for the 4th to 7th year is possible. This means that a TYPO3 version can be used for up to 7 years without relaunching the website.

Which version to use?

The current TYPO3 version 12.4 LTS was released on April 24, 2023. Support and updates are available until the end of April 2026, with the ELTS service until April 2030. 

Version 13 is currently under development and will be released on October 15, 2024.

Version 12.4.15 is the current, stable version. Anyone creating a new project should use this.

Version 11.5 is also current; from October 2024, extended support with updates until October 2028 can be booked.

Regular support for version 10.4 expired at the end of April 2023. Updates and support are available via the ELTS service until April 2027.

Version 9.5 was supported until the end of September 2021 (updates and support are still available with ELTS Service until the end of September 2025). 

Support has expired for versions 8.7, 7.6, 6.2 and earlier. There are no further updates for these versions. It is recommended to upgrade to version 12.4.

The support of a TYPO3 version for up to seven years protects the investment in your website. As a rule, a simple update of the TYPO3 source code is sufficient. We usually carry this out automatically for projects hosted by us. Customers are informed by e-mail before an update is installed.

TYPO3 System Requirements: Which PHP and Database Versions fit together?

Every TYPO3 version requires a matching PHP and MySQL version. Especially with older projects, it is sometimes difficult to find the right information. Here we have summarized the versions in an overview:
