Compatibility

This document holds the compatibility information for Semantic MediaWiki (SMW).

For a full list of changes in each release, see the release notes. For instructions on how to install the latest version of Semantic MediaWiki (SMW), see the installation instructions.

Platform compatibility and release status

The PHP and MediaWiki version ranges listed have been tested and are expected to work, attempting to use Semantic MediaWiki outside of the mentioned release boundaries is NOT recommended and users who are trying to use different combinations will unlikely receive any support.

Semantic MediaWiki may also work with more recent versions of PHP and MediaWiki, though this is not guaranteed.

Notes

Increases of minimum requirements are indicated in bold.

It is strongly recommended to also always upgrade the underlying MediaWiki software to supported versions (see the version lifecycle for further information).

HHVM 3.3.0 to 3.30.0 was only supported in varying versions from SMW 2.1.x to 3.0.x but since HHVM is no longer tested functionality can no longer be validated and assured.
