Hello there, 


As a former Technical Support Engineer, one question I was often asked was "What version of PAN-OS do you recommend?"  Unsurprisingly, this question also comes up on a regular basis as a LIVEcommunity discussion.


Luckily, the answer is easy to find—Palo Alto Networks' support engineers have a Support PAN-OS Software Release Guidance article located in LIVEcommunity's Customer Resources area.

The Support PAN-OS Software Release Guidance article is constantly updated with every new revision. It lists out all of the currently supported versions of PAN-OS, Release Dates, and what version is Support Preferred. 


The article covers the following products:


  • PAN-OS for Firewalls
  • Panorama on VM / M-series
  • GlobalProtect
  • User-ID / Terminal Server Agent


That article is reviewed on a weekly basis to ensure that it remains up-to-date with the latest information on the recommended version of the latest software.


In the article, you'll also find links to the latest Security Advisories, as well as recommended versions for Updated Prisma Access Software Release Guidance.


I hope that this helps someone find the information that they need!
