Dynamicweb 9 is distributed in two ways:

  • As a standalone application in  a manner similar to previous versions of Dynamicweb
  • As a collection of packages which can be updated dynamically from our NuGet feed

The standalone applications are released as follows:

  • Majors (DW 8, DW 9) are released every 2-3 years
  • Minors (DW 9.1, DW 9.2) are released biannually - in January and August
  • Service releases/Hotfixes (DW 9.1.1, DW 9.2.2) are released on Tuesdays, on a need-to basis

Packages for package-based solutions are released on a running basis, although select packages are released only when majors are released.
