7.8 End-of-Life

Sugar 7.8 reached its End-of-Life (EOL) date on March 31st, 2018, meaning SugarCRM will no longer be providing customer support, maintenance patches, or bug fixes for 7.8. Sugar 7.8 previously received an EOL extension, giving customers four additional months to prepare for, and execute, upgrades to a newer version of Sugar. All customers deployed On-Premise still using Sugar 7.8 in production should consider one of the following options at this time:

  • Upgrade to version 8.0 upon release (scheduled for April 27, 2018), which will be supported for 18 months (through October 2019) with an optional 12 months of extended support available for purchase.
  • Upgrade to version 7.9, which will be supported through November 15, 2018, with an optional Extended Support End-of-Life Date of November 15, 2019 (available for purchase).
Upgrades to 7.9 will be required before upgrading to the upcoming Sugar 8.0 release as upgrade paths from unsupported versions are not provided. Please click the ‘Follow’ button under the Explore space in the community to ensure you stay up-to-date on this and other releases.
