Font Awesome will be maintained under the Semantic Versioning guidelines as much as possible. Releases will be numbered with the following format:


For more information on SemVer, please visit

The major version "6" is part of an umbrella release. It includes many different types of files and technologies. Therefore we deviate from normal SemVer in the following ways:

  • Any release may update the design, look-and-feel, or branding of an existing icon
  • We will never intentionally release a patch version update that breaks backward compatibility
  • A minor release may include backward-incompatible changes but we will write clear upgrading instructions in
  • A minor or patch release will never remove icons
  • Bug fixes will be addressed as patch releases unless they include backward incompatibility then they will be minor releases
