Current Release

The most recent version of Kolab is winterfell. The community is working to supercede this release by Kolab 18 in Q1 2018.

The current recommended version for supported production deployments is Kolab 16.1.

The release of Kolab 18 will occur in Q1 of 2018, at which point Kolab 16.1 will no longer be supported by the community, and Kolab Systems AG takes over long-term support for its customers.

We expect that Kolab 18 will be upgraded to “gold” status in Q2 2018, and become the release for production installations. Subscription-based support from Kolab Systems AG will also be available for Kolab 18.

For subscription-based support of Kolab installations, please visit Kolab Enterprise, which offers services for all sizes of business, government, NGO, and educational organizations. You can read about the advantages of a Kolab subscription.
