Changes coming to the Laravel release cycle

Changes coming to the Laravel release cycle

Back in 2013, Taylor announced Laravel’s official release cycle where each year includes two releases. The first in June and the second in December.

Yesterday, Taylor announced on Twitter that this is going to be changing to a January and July cycle, pushing each release out a month from its current schedule.

This has two primary advantages for the development team and the first is it allows more time for testing after Symfony’s release. The second advantage is it’ll better coincide with Laracon, the yearly Laravel conference.

For most of the users of Laravel, this will not affect much, Laravel 5.4 will be pushed out one month to launch in January. Then it’ll be back to the normal six-month release cycle with the next one coming in July.
