Laravel 5.5 Will Be The Next LTS Release

Laravel 5.5 Will Be The Next LTS Release

Version 5.1 was Laravel’s first LTS release and its two-year window of bug fixes are coming to an end this year. There have been a few people questioning if another LTS would be released and version 5.5 would be the next in line if it did happen.

Just today Laravel announced on Twitter that Laravel 5.5 will, in fact, continue the LTS line:

Just as the previous LTS this will include two years of bug fixes and three years of security updates.

For those not familiar with long-term support, these are special versions that are feature locked at the date of release. They do not get any new features but keep getting bug fixes and security updates throughout the maintenance window.
