Releases and Versions

Mondoo Platform is web-based SaaS, so you never need to upgrade to get the latest Mondoo Console and administrative software. However, cnspec, Mondoo's CLI that powers some Mondoo integrations, is a binary that you manage on your assets.


You're responsible for updating cnspec across your infrastructure. To learn how, read Update cnspec.

How Mondoo versioning works

Mondoo's versioning policy is based on the semantic versioning standard. For example, in version 6.3.2, 6 is the major version, 3 is the minor version, and 2 is the patch. When we release a new version, we increment one of these three version components depending on the type of changes we introduce.

Breaking changes

Major version releases of Mondoo contain soft-breaking changes. These may require you to update your integrations, policies, or automation scripts in order to avoid disruption, but you have a long time to make those updates. We provide advanced warning before we make these changes, and they don't become hard-breaking changes until the next major release.
