Solr 9.6.1 is the most recent Apache Solr release.

Solr 8.11.3

Solr 8.11.3 is the latest release in the 8.x series.

About versions and support

Apache Solr is under active development with frequent feature releases on the current major version. The previous major version will see occasional critical security- or bug fixes releases. Older versions are considered EOL (End Of Life) and will not be further updated. For this reason it may also be difficult to obtain community support for EOL versions.

Large changes or changes that break compatibility with existing functionality are normally only included in the next major version.
