Per the Coveo Version Support Lifecycle policy, this Coveo for Sitecore 5 release has been retired. See available Coveo for Sitecore releases.

Even if this release is retired, you must still perform its upgrade steps to upgrade to a more recent version of Coveo for Sitecore.

This release includes the 2.9159.8 version of the JavaScript Search Framework (see June 2020 Release (v2.9159)).

When using a CDN with the Coveo Hive framework, this release includes the latest 2.9159 version of the JavaScript Search Framework (see Understanding How the Coveo JavaScript Files are Loaded (CDN)).


The initial August 10, 2020 release was 5.0.761.2. However, due to an issue with the WDP download link, the package build process had to be repeated, producing build 5.0.761.5. Version 5.0.761.2 and 5.0.761.5 packages are identical.
