The following technologies can no longer be used from Shopware 5.7 in the version mentioned:
All PHP Versions under 7.4
Elasticsearch under the version 7.0
The following versions can be used as of Shopware 5.7:
PHP 8 compatibility: To future-proof Shopware and increase performance, we have made Shopware 5.7 PHP 8 compatible. Updates for PHP 7.2 were discontinued at the end of November and are therefore "end of life".
Symfony 4 LTS Update: With Shopware 5, we also rely on state-of-the-art technology. The update to Symfony 4 LTS primarily brings stability. Security updates for Symfony 3 will only run until 2021.
From now on, the sitemap can be maintained via the backend. Thus, custom URLs can be entered and URLs can be excluded from sitemaps.
Shopware 5 receives 5 years of support and updates.
Regular Releases (incl. features) until 07/2021
Bugfix Releases until 07/2023
Security Releases until 07/2024
During this period, we make sure that the shop is operational at all times. This means concretely:
Compatibility with current technologies (e.g. PHP, MySQL, Elasticsearch)
