Supported Versions

Note: Beginning in September 2021 with Electron 15, the Electron teamwill temporarily support the latest four stable major versions. Thisextended support is intended to help Electron developers transition tothe new eight week release cadence, and will continue until May 2022, withthe release of Electron 19. At that time, the Electron team will drop supportback to the latest three stable major versions.

The latest three stable major versions are supported by the Electron team.For example, if the latest release is 6.1.x, then the 5.0.x as wellas the 4.2.x series are supported. We only support the latest minor releasefor each stable release series. This means that in the case of a security fix6.1.x will receive the fix, but we will not release a new version of 6.0.x.

The latest stable release unilaterally receives all fixes from main,and the version prior to that receives the vast majority of those fixesas time and bandwidth warrants. The oldest supported release line will receiveonly security fixes directly.

Yosemite version number

All supported release lines will accept external pull requests to backportfixes previously merged to main, though this may be on a case-by-casebasis for some older supported lines. All contested decisions around releaseline backports will be resolved by the Releases Working Group as an agenda item at their weekly meeting the week the backport PR is raised.

When an API is changed or removed in a way that breaks existing functionality, theprevious functionality will be supported for a minimum of two major versions whenpossible before being removed. For example, if a function takes three arguments,and that number is reduced to two in major version 10, the three-argument version wouldcontinue to work until, at minimum, major version 12. Past the minimum two-versionthreshold, we will attempt to support backwards compatibility beyond two versionsuntil the maintainers feel the maintenance burden is too high to continue doing so.

Currently supported versions

  • 14.x.y
  • 13.x.y
  • 12


When a release branch reaches the end of its support cycle, the serieswill be deprecated in NPM and a final end-of-support release will bemade. This release will add a warning to inform that an unsupportedversion of Electron is in use.

These steps are to help app developers learn when a branch they'reusing becomes unsupported, but without being excessively intrusiveto end users.

Osx Yosemite Version

If an application has exceptional circumstances and needs to stayon an unsupported series of Electron, developers can silence theend-of-support warning by omitting the final release from the app'spackage.jsondevDependencies. For example, since the 1-6-x seriesended with an end-of-support 1.6.18 release, developers could chooseto stay in the 1-6-x series without warnings with devDependency of'electron': 1.6.0 - 1.6.17.

Supported Platforms

Yosemite Version Number

Following platforms are supported by Electron:


Only 64bit binaries are provided for macOS, and the minimum macOS versionsupported is macOS 10.11 (El Capitan).

Native support for Apple Silicon (arm64) devices was added in Electron 11.0.0.


Windows 7 and later are supported, older operating systems are not supported(and do not work).

Both ia32 (x86) and x64 (amd64) binaries are provided for Windows.Native support for Windows on Arm (arm64) devices was added in Electron 6.0.8..Running apps packaged with previous versions is possible using the ia32 binary.


The prebuilt binaries of Electron are built on Ubuntu 18.04.

Whether the prebuilt binary can run on a distribution depends on whether thedistribution includes the libraries that Electron is linked to on the buildingplatform, so only Ubuntu 18.04 is guaranteed to work, but following platformsare also verified to be able to run the prebuilt binaries of Electron:

  • Ubuntu 14.04 and newer
  • Fedora 24 and newer
  • Debian 8 and newer
