Data Sources

The raw data for this chart is based on release dates of all the major WordPress versions.

Version lifespan is the difference (in days) between two major WordPress versions. In other words, how long did it take to release the next major version?

History

At the beginning WordPress didn’t had an official release schedule. But after the release of WordPress 2.1 it was decided to adopt a regular release schedule every 3-4 months (90-120 days).
