The project maintains 2 stable releases. Which currently are:
All release notes and security bulletins are sent to the announcement mail list. Please sign up to this low frequency list for important updates.
The development release is always the next version higher than stable.
For more information about older versions, see the FAQ item about supported releases. Older versions should no longer be used. Versions prior to the stable releases listed above may have known security issues that will not be resolved.
Additional installation information may also be found in the book.
The docker repository identifier is "ledgersmb/ledgersmb" with the "latest" tag always pointing to the most recent stable release. The "master" tag points to the most recent alpha or beta of the development version.
Official release distribution
The latest official release of LedgerSMB is always at download site. Releases are signed with GPG to assert integrity. Our public GPG key can be found on MIT's key server or on pgpkeys.eu. Install and upgrade info.
You can verify the release with the command
$ gpg --verify ledgersmb-<version>.tar.gz.asc ledgersmb-<version>.tar.gz
A Debian package is available in Debian v12 (stable, 'bookworm'). Note that the current LedgerSMB version that is recommended for use is the current stable series, which is not in Debian. We're looking for maintainers which will be able to get newer versions into Debian.
Newer packages than those distributed by Debian can be found in the LedgerSMB APT repository (along with their updated dependancies as necessary).
Ubuntu packages are available in the standard distributions based off of the Debian packages.
Newer packages than those distributed in Ubuntu can be found in the LedgerSMB PPA repository.
