When OpenMRS reached 2.0, we decided to allow the platform – application programmer interface (API) and web services – to develop and grow separately from the web application. As a result, we have named the API and web services "OpenMRS Platform" and will continue to call our web-based medical record system "OpenMRS".
For the time being, we are in an awkward phase, where the legacy UI remains within the OpenMRS Platform and the new OpenMRS UI has not fully replaced the legacy UI. As a result, many implementations will continue to use the platform without the new web application and people will continue to be confused by the naming of "OpenMRS Platform". We are working hard to resolve this by OpenMRS 2.2 (or, worse case, OpenMRS 2.3), when implementations will be able to upgrade into the new application and the legacy UI can be retired from the platform.
This release is the "OpenMRS Platform 1.11" – it is the release version of the under-the-hood OpenMRS API that follows the OpenMRS 1.10.x line.
We hope also seeing this same platform in 2.2

OpenMRS 1.8 is no longer supported
As of described in Unsupported Releases (EOL), OpenMRS can only support up to three released versions at a time (the current release and then two versions back). Since OpenMRS Platform 1.11 is only the second release of the OpenMRS Platform (following OpenMRS 1.10), there are no earlier versions of the platform undergoing EOL.
