Sugar 8 End of Life and Current Support Versions
On April 9th, 2019 Sugar 9 was released and is now generally available to all Sugar customers. As with every annual release, the time has come to end-of-life Sugar 8 which will take place on October 31st, 2019.
Here is an update on all Supported Versions currently up-to-date as of this post.
SugarCRM regularly retires older versions of the Sugar application in order to be able to focus on delivering higher quality in the latest and upcoming product releases. See below for the list of currently supported versions and their end-of-life (EOL) plan.
The Sugar EOL plan applies to all On-Site versions and editions of the Sugar application, Sugar mobile solutions, and the Sugar Plug-ins, connectors, and extensions. Currently, only the latest released versions of the Sugar Connector for Marketo, Sugar mobile solutions, and the Sugar plug-ins for Microsoft Outlook, Word, Excel, and IBM Notes are supported.
After the EOL dates below have passed, SugarCRM will no longer provide customer support, maintenance patches, or bug fixes for the listed versions. All available upgrade and maintenance patches available at the time of the end-of-life date for a given version will remain available for download but no additional packages will be produced from that point forward.
* Extended support is available for purchase.
Versions earlier than 8.0 are no longer supported. Please visit this page regularly for updates.
Upgrading to Supported Versions
To upgrade to the latest supported version, find upgrade packages in the Download Manager. After downloading the appropriate upgrade files, upload and install them using the Upgrade Wizard in the Administration page in your Sugar instance. The most current versions of the Sugar plug-ins and extensions can also be found in the Download Manager.
Documentation for unsupported versions is available from the Unsupported Versions page in order to assist with your upgrade to a current version.
