Release History and Compatibility
The Core Components were first released with AEM 6.3 and are designed to be flexible and compatible with all supported AEM versions. Because of this a release of the components can contain multiple versions of the same component.
The following tables illustrate the compatibility of the releases of the Core Components along with which component versions are contained in which releases.
Release History & Requirements
The following table, the contents of which are available on GitHub with full release details , gives an overview of the releases of the Core Components and their compatibility with AEM releases and Java versions.
Versions and Releases
Core Components are distributed via GitHub. This allows Adobe to more quickly add functionality to the components and also allow for community input outside of the AEM release cycle.
The Core Components are made available with defined AEM versions with which they are compatible. This means that one AEM version may support multiple versions or releases of the Core Components. This gives more flexibility than the former Foundation Components, which were tied to a specific version of AEM.
