This page provides information on the **Bloomreach Content (SaaS) releases**. Watch this space to stay updated about our fortnightly, planned releases containing critical bug fixes, feature enhancements, and new feature releases. We also share **new documentation updates** to bring exciting and helpful pages to your attention.

Releases are deployed to customer environments 2 weeks after the date encoded in the release version. This will occur between 10:00-14:00 CET on a Tuesday for customers hosted in the US or APAC. (This is usually 4-8am EST or 18:00-22:00 AET, except during daylight saving time transitions.) For customers in the EU, this will happen on the same Tuesday between 18:00-22:00 CET.

Bloomreach recommends always using the [latest version of the SPA SDK](πŸ”—ο»Ώ) for frontend applications integrating with Content SaaS. For more details see [SPA SDKs - Lifecycle and Support](πŸ”—ο»Ώ).
