Solr Downloads

Official releases are usually created when the developers feel there are sufficient changes, improvements and bug fixes to warrant a release. Due to the voluntary nature of Solr, no releases are scheduled in advance.

Solr 8.2.0

Solr 8.2.0 is the most recent Apache Solr release.

Solr 7.7.2

Solr 7.7.2 is the last release in the 7.x series.

About downloads

Verify downloads

The above release files should be verified using the PGP signatures and the project release KEYS. See verification instructions for a description of using the PGP and KEYS files for verification. SHA checksums are also provided as alternative verification method.

File names

The solr-VERSION.zip or solr-VERSION.tgz files (where VERSION is the version number of the release, e.g. 8.1.1) contain Apache Solr, html documentation and a tutorial.

The solr-VERSION-src.tgz file contains the full source code for that version.

About versions and support

Apache Solr is under active development with frequent feature releases on the current major version. The previous major version may still receive security- and bug fixes as point releases, thus taking the role of the LTS (Long Term Support) version. 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.
