In the tables below, the "Mahara version" is the Mahara release that the functionality is comparable to, and once a version of Ubuntu or Debian is released, the functionality does not change. However '''all''' security fixes found for these versions get added to the packages in the repositories, and we work closely with these distributions to provide this extended security support.
 
 
When a version of a distribution is released, the base number of the Mahara package will remain static from then on, however when patches are applied the distribution's patch number for the package will change (Eg, 1.5.1 without patches is 1.5.1-1, with one set of patches it will be 1.5.1-2).
 
 
The Mahara version listed below for ''unreleased versions of each distribution'' may change before their release date.

Definition of support

Being supported means:

  • The release team is committed to making available updates to Mahara that are security related.
  • Occasionally, some other serious bug fixes will be included, but these are not guaranteed.


Release schedule

Current and upcoming releases (Mahara 1.5+)

As of Mahara 1.5 and the adoption of the 6-month release cycle which started for Mahara 1.6, Mahara is supported for the duration of 3 release cycles.

Older releases (pre Mahara 1.6)

For Mahara 1.4 and earlier, support has been provided for 2 release cycles.

Extended support

We upload packaged versions of Mahara to Debian and Ubuntu, which can be installed via the repositories.

This means that we provide security fixes only for these packages until the "End of life" dates. Only versions installed from the universe repositories are given security fixes beyond the official Mahara end of support date.
