SAP Fiori Front-end Server (FES) 6.0 SP01 is available since 12th of February 2020, which is also the release date of SAP S/4HANA 1909 FPS01. As a long-term maintenance version, SAP

FES 6.0 includes SAPUI5 1.71.

SAP FES 6.0 offers the technical foundation for SAP Fiori apps for SAP Business Suite and SAP S/4HANA. It includes the basic features of the new SAP Fiori 3 design for all SAP products to fully support the Intelligent Suite. Also older releases of SAP S/4HANA or SAP Business Suite can get  the new SAP Fiori 3 design and features by upgrading their SAP Fiori front-end server to release 6.0.

With the extension of the maintenance period of SAP Fiori FES 6.0 to the end of year 2027, SAP offers a long-term stable SAP Fiori technology stack. This means SAP Fiori FES 6.0 is the recommended version in combination with SAP Business Suite or SAP S/4HANA up to version 1909 until the end of maintenance.

SAP Fiori Front-end server 6.0 can be used in a embedded or hub/standalone server deployment. For the different deployment options and recommendations, please refer to the document SAP Fiori Deployment Options and Recommendations.

Upgrade Recommendations 

SAP FES 6.0 is the long-term maintenance version and the recommended go-to-version for SAP Fiori Front-end Server upgrades for SAP Business Suite and SAP S/4HANA customers.

Each SAP S/4HANA release comes with an initial SAP FES version as a minimum version. For example, for SAP S/4HANA 1709 the minimum version is SAP FES 4.0. It can be upgraded to SAP FES 5.0  or SAP FES 6.0 independent from SAP S/4HANA software components as shown in the graph. The recommendation is to upgrade directly to SAP FES 6.0.

SAP FES 3.0 is out of maintenance since 31th of December 2019. An upgrade to SAP FES 6.0 is recommended.
