It was four years ago that I announced in my
SugarCRM in the Next 10 Years post how SugarCRM would not be releasing new versions of the Sugar Community Edition CRM product, making Sugar 6.5 the last version of Sugar CE. In mid 2017, we announced that Sugar 6.5 had reached it's end-of-life and would no longer be supported. It is now time for the SugarCRM open source project to come to conclusion.
We are announcing today that the SugarCRM open source project and the corresponding Sugar Community Edition product are ending. To be clear, SugarCRM has ended development and maintenance of the Community Edition. SugarCRM no longer issues new bug fixes, security updates and patches for the Community Edition, and will be soon removing all Community Edition downloads from SourceForge.net.
We want to thank all of the developers and users who made Community Edition such a special project for fourteen years. For those curious about using Sugar, or users of Community Edition in production - we recommend starting a Free Trial of Sugar - get started here: https://www.sugarcrm.com/download/.
Thank you for your support over the years and we look forward to continuing the relationship with you as users of the Sugar Professional or Sugar Enterprise editions.
Sad to see Sugar CRM go, I would have thought the open source versions provided you with invaluable insights and free R&D to make it sustainable.
SugarCE is always there in the daily life of many people, it is a great piece of software. It is sad to say it just ended there.
