Compatible platforms

eZ Publish can run and execute on many more platforms than the ones listed above. However, eZ Systems doesn't insure and guarantee quality operation of an eZ Publish Enterprise installation if it is running on any platform not listed as either REFERENCE or APPROVED. eZ Publish Enterprise Subscriptions are still available for compatible platforms, but the guarantee and the product support will not apply and although you will receive various maintenance releases and services, no bug fix guarantee will apply to issues related to the platform. Maintenance and monitoring tools will not be available. eZ Systems does not advise merely compatible platforms for production use.

Known limitation on ImageMagick 6.5.4-7

Please be aware that if you have the [URLTranslator]/TransformationGroup legacy setting set to urlalias_iri in your site.ini (if you are running eZ Publish in legacy mode), then special character escaping with ImageMagick 6.5.4-7 may not work as expected.

This is caused by an ImageMagick limitation which fails on escaping  the following special characters: ~*?[]{}<>
If you are using this version of ImageMagick and urlalias_iri in the TransformationGroup setting, please be sure to avoid using those characters in file names, or it will generate issues with eZ Publish.
