Deprecation: #84549 - Deprecate methods in CoreVersionService

See Issue #84549


The core version service has been refactored to make use of the new REST API available via .

Due to that refactoring multiple methods in class CoreVersionService have been marked as deprecated:

  • getDownloadBaseUrl()
  • isYoungerPatchDevelopmentReleaseAvailable()
  • getYoungestPatchDevelopmentRelease()
  • updateVersionMatrix()


Usage of any of these methods will trigger a PHP E_USER_DEPRECATED error.

Affected Installations

Any that use the mentioned methods.


  • For getDownloadBaseUrl() use directly
  • For isYoungerPatchDevelopmentReleaseAvailable() use isYoungerPatchReleaseAvailable() as the current releases do not make use of development suffixes (like alpha or rc) anymore
  • For getYoungestPatchDevelopmentRelease() use getYoungestPatchRelease()
  • updateVersionMatrix() needs no replacement method - instead the necessary information can be fetched directly via the REST API
