Archiveopteryx Releases

We release a new version every five weeks. Each release has its own web page (e.g., and is also announced on the news page. If you want to be notified about new releases, please join the mailstore-announce list, or use the RSS feed.




Here's a list of Archiveopteryx 2.x releases:

There will be no new features in 2.x. The next release with new features will be 3.0.0, and bugfixes will be released as 3.0.1, 3.0.2, and so on. (In other words, new features are introduced only in 3.x.0, and bugfixes for a given 3.x.0 release will be released as 3.x.y.)

We will continue to release 2.x bugfixes after the release of 3.0.0, and continue to release 2.x and 3.0.x bugfixes after 3.1.0.

Older releases

The first public release of the software, then called Oryx Mailstore, was 0.90, in January 2005. After nine further monthly releases of 0.9x, we released 1.0 in November 2005. In January 2006, we renamed the software to Archiveopteryx, and released 1.02. There were sixteen more 1.x releases, ending with 1.18, released in April 2007.

Our future plans are described in our roadmap.
