Prior to Sitecore 8.2 the Sitecore.Kernel.dll version was the same as the version of the product I was using, however, from 8.2 the dll version seems to be ambiguous, like 10.0.3.309.

Is there a way to identify the Sitecore version by dlls in the bin folder starting from 8.2?

With Sitecore 8.2 Initial release, you could open the properties of a Sitecore.Kernel.dll, go to the Details tab, and the "Product Version" field contained the revision number (rev. 160729) that you could look up on this page. Unfortunately, this is no longer an option with 8.2 Update 1 and 8.2 Update 2.

So here's the mapping of the Sitecore.Kernel.dll versions since 8.2 that exist to date:

  • 13.0.0.0 - 9.2 rev. 002893 (Initial Release)
  • 12.0.1.0 - 9.1 rev. 002459 (Update 1)
  • 12.0.0.0 - 9.1 rev. 001564 (Initial Release)
  • 11.1.2.461 - 9.0 rev. 180604 (Update 2)
  • 11.1.1.395 - 9.0 rev. 171219 (Update 1)
  • 11.1.0.369 - 9.0 rev. 171002 (Initial Release)
  • 10.0.9.605 — 8.2 rev. 180406 (Update 7)
  • 10.0.8.560 — 8.2 rev. 171121 (Update 6)
  • 10.0.7.479 — 8.2 rev. 170728 (Update 5)
  • 10.0.6.427 — 8.2 rev. 170614 (Update 4)
  • 10.0.5.377 — 8.2 rev. 170407 (Update 3)
  • 10.0.4.315 — 8.2 rev. 161221 (Update 2)
  • 10.0.3.309 — 8.2 rev. 161115 (Update 1)
  • 10.0.0.5597 — 8.2 rev. 160729 (Initial Release)

Note: Newer versions of Sitecore should be added to the top as they are officially released.

  • @PeteNavarra of course! As a matter of fact, this is also true for all stack exchange answers ;-) – Dmytro Shevchenko Feb 12 '17 at 19:48

  • Sitecore updated the numbering convention for the Analytics DLL from version 4. This was always likely to happen since separate libraries can now independently be updated. Incorrect info was removed. – jammykam Sep 27 '17 at 15:55

Just an update for Sitecore 9, here are the Sitecore kernel dll's file versions for different releases -
