SAPUI5 versions for latest innovations and patches
SAPUI5 is constantly innovating with new capabilities and at the same time providing patches for delivered releases. For details see the version concept as well as the SAPUI5 maintenance strategy and SAPUI5 Versions Maintenance Status summarized here.
SAPUI5 provides a consistent user experience across SAP’s products in cloud and on-prem. Different products have different requirements with regards to updating SAPUI5: Cloud customers expect that updates are handled by SAP (e.g. on SAP BTP) to always have access to the latest capabilities of SAPUI5. On-prem customers upgrade their systems on their own schedule.
