Elasticsearch 5.3.2 and Elasticsearch 2.4.5 released

By Clinton Gormley

Today we are pleased to announce the bugfix release of Elasticsearch 5.3.2, based on Lucene 6.4.2, and Elasticsearch 2.4.5, based on Lucene 5.5.4. Both versions is already available for deployment on Elastic Cloud, our Elasticsearch-as-a-service platform. All users of stored templates should upgrade to 5.3.2.

Latest stable release in 5.x:

Latest stable release in legacy 2.x:

You can read the full changes list in the links above, but the main reasons for the 5.3.2 release are:

  • Elasticsearch 5.2.0 included a change which could prevent users of stored templates from restarting their nodes.
  • The safety check introduced in 5.3.1 for the Multi data path bug in Elasticsearch 5.3.0 had some edge cases.

Please download Elasticsearch 5.3.2, try it out, and let us know what you think on Twitter (@elastic) or in our forum. You can report any problems on the GitHub issues page.
