Stuck in API Platform 2.7? We can help!

Published on November 08, 2023

API Platform 2.7 is no longer maintained as of September 2023. If your web application is still using this version, its security may now be at risk because older versions no longer benefit from bug fixes or potential security flaws. In short, using an unmaintained version in production can compromise the security of your customers' data. To comply with GDPR and many other regulations, please upgrade! Fortunately, as the creators of API Platform, we're here to help!

Use the most efficient version of API Platform #

Developing with API Platform 3 (released at the API Platform Conference 2022) is easier than before:

  • Better URL management
  • Nested resources
  • Improved performance
  • Better standards compliance
  • Simpler deployment
  • Etc.

You can also implement advanced development methodologies such as DDD (Domain-Driven Design) or CQRS (Command Query Responsibility Segregation) models with it.

Support the development of a Long-Term Support (LTS) version #

API Platform 2 was released 7 years ago and has been maintained for an additional 1 year since the release of API Platform 3.

As a solution for projects that can't migrate immediately, we're initiating a community crowdfunding campaign to fund the maintenance of API Platform 2.7 for several more years through a Long-Term Support version. The goal is to raise 36,000 euros to sustain API Platform 2.7 until September 2026, which aligns with the end-of-life date for Symfony 6.
