Update: Laravel 6.0 is now released!

Everyone has been asking about the release date of Laravel 6.0, the latest version of the framework to be released this year! We even joked about it on twitter:

If you’re getting as excited as we are about the prospect of Laravel 6.0 and Vapor, you should check out the release notes, which has updated version dates:

For LTS releases, such as Laravel 6.0, bug fixes are provided for 2 years and security fixes are provided for 3 years. These releases provide the longest window of support and maintenance. For general releases, bug fixes are provided for 6 months and security fixes are provided for 1 year. For all additional libraries, including Lumen, only the latest release receives bug fixes.

Here’s the table of release versions and dates:

So the date of the Laravel 6.0 release according to this document, is September 3rd, 2019! Taylor also mentioned that Laravel 6.0 is the next long-term service (LTS) release, replacing Laravel 5.5 LTS. Not to worry though, the 5.5 LTS will receive security updates until August 30th, 2020.

If you want to start using Laravel 6.0 now, you can run the following command via the Laravel installer:

laravel new --dev my-project
