Adobe continually strives to find the right balance between making product upgrades simple and predictable and delivering improvements and new features to early adopters faster. Over the last year, we have refined how we deliver software to support this balance.

Patch and Security Patch Releases are opportunities to upgrade the core codebase to keep your platform secure, reliable, and performant. Feature Releases occur every other month. Feature Releases are independent of the core codebase and are available through external module or extension. Any updates to existing independent features will also be released during Feature Release periods and will happen automatically if the feature is already implemented.
Pre-release is General Availability code that is available to Adobe Commerce merchants and all partners two weeks before General Availability. It allows for quicker deployment of code before General Availability.
Beta is non-General Availability code that is available to all partners. It allows for extra time to review code and affected components.
- Patch releases—Updates to the core Adobe Commerce and Magento Open Source application that include security, compliance, performance, and high-priority quality fixes.
- Security patch releases—Security-only updates to the Adobe Commerce and Magento Open Source application released to keep merchants secure and compliant.
- Feature releases—New features and feature updates that are delivered as independent services, separate from the patch releases. Examples include services like Product Recommendations and Live Search, independent modules like PWA Studio and Inventory Management (MSI), and updates to our cloud services and infrastructure.
