Q2 has brought an unprecedented amount of change to the Mautic Community, let's dive into how that is impacting the project.
Project governance updates
Becoming an independent project
The biggest announcement was of course that Mautic has become an independent open source project.
Associated with this has been the process of determining the new governance model and subsequently, after much debate and discussion, adopting the new model which is currently being implemented.
Open Startup reporting
Mautic has started to provide more transparency on our progress and finances through our Open Startup reporting.
We won an award!
In June we were delighted to hear that Mautic had won the Marketing Automation award in the 20i FOSS Awards. A huge thank you to everyone who voted for us!
Request for proposals - Trial Provider
In June we issued a request for proposals to provide a hosted trial of the open source Mautic product to people who are new to Mautic.
We had a positive response to the RFP and the team are currently reviewing the proposals.
Mautic 5 alpha is launched!
The moment everyone has been waiting for! On 26th June we released the Mautic 5.0 alpha for early pre-release testing. There is no upgrade path for this version and it should only be used in a development environment.
The beta release is due on 26th July. Check the timelines for the upcoming releases here.
Mautic Conference Global 2023 🎉
We had another successful Mautic Conference Global event with training sessions, sessions and keynotes alongside opportunities to network with other Mauticians from around the world. Read more in our blog post.

It has been fantastic to see the energy and excitement around becoming an independent open source project. The discussions and debate that we have had around the future governance of the project have resulted in some positive changes which I'm looking forward to being implemented in the coming months.
As we are now going into much more detail on a monthly basis in our open startup reports, I'm going to remove the financial aspects on this report, as you can follow them more closely on a monthly basis and check directly on the spreadsheet or on Open Collective itself if you want to dive into the detail.
Thanks as always to everyone who has stepped up to support Mautic whether it be through practical contributions or financial donations!
