I always have a hard time figuring out what versions where released when and how much longer we’ll have support for which versions. I decided to do some research and come up with a chart.
General rule is that Laravel will release new version in January and July. (To coincide with Laracon Events) Based on that here’s a current list of Laravel versions and their support dates from Laravel 5.0 to the next 2 planned releases.
|Version||Released Date||End of Bug Fix Updates||End of Security Updates|
|5.0||February 2015||August 2016||February 2016|
|5.1 (LTS)||June 2015||June 2017||June 2018|
|5.2||December 2015||June 2016||December 2016|
|5.3||September 2016||March 2017||September 2017|
|5.4||January 2017||June 2017||January 2018|
|5.5||July 2017||January 2018||July 2018|
