# Version compatibility

This documentation only reflects the latest version of MeiliSearch. As long as we are pre-v1.0, we do not provide multi-version documentation and databases are not compatible between versions.

The current version of MeiliSearch (opens new window) can be found in the top-left of this site.

# Open-source

MeiliSearch and its documentation are both completely open source. You can support the project by starring our main GitHub repository (opens new window) or contributing to the docs.
