Versioning of SAPUI5Locate this document in the navigation structure

As of SAPUI5 1.6 there is a close coupling of SAPUI5 core/runtime and SAPUI5 tools: It is required that within a running system both have the same version, that is, have the same major and minor version.

For example, SAPUI5 core/runtime 1.x.1 works together with SAPUI5 tools 1.x.2, but not with SAPUI5 tools 1.y. For a future release it is planned to have a more loose coupling here with regards to the minor and micro version.


As of SAPUI5 1.6 we can only support customers who follow this rule in their system landscapes.

Versioning Scheme

SAPUI5 uses a 3-digit version identifier, for example 1.26.4. These digits have the following meaning:

  • The first digit (1) specifies the major version number.
  • The second digit (26) specifies the minor version number.
  • The third digit (4) specifies the patch version number.

The version number for each new SAPUI5 release contains a major and minor version number. The patch version number is only used to identify patches within a release.
