Shopware 6.1 is here!

To the German article

Now that the Developer Preview and two Early Access releases have taken place, it’s finally time: Shopware 6.1 is now available for download.

What has happened since the Community Day 2019?

Since Shopware 6 was presented at the keynote of the Shopware Community Day, we have collected a great deal of feedback from both the Developer Preview and Early Access phase and immediately used it for developing and defining the roadmap.


More than 3,000 installations since July

We are delighted that Shopware 6 has not only been downloaded over 3,000 times since July, but that we were also able to help various Shopware 6 projects early on during the implementation. In addition to complex enterprise projects such as SIX, start-ups such as Clew went live with Shopware 6 and even made it on to popular shows like Höhle der Löwen (German version of "Dragons' Den").

You can learn more about the first Shopware 6 projects in our case studies.
