The most recent significant feature release was version 4.1, which was made available in 2014. The project has continued to release minor updates that fix bugs, update dictionaries and sometimes include feature enhancements. Difficulties maintaining a sufficient number of contributors to keep the project viable have persisted for several years.
In January 2015 the project reported a lack of active developers and code contributions. There have been ongoing problems providing timely fixes to security through 2015, 2016 and 2017. Downloads of the software peaked in 2013 with an average of just under 148,000 per day compared to 84,298 in 2017.

IBM donated the codebase to the Apache Software Foundation in 2012, and Symphony was deprecated in favour of Apache OpenOffice. Many features and bug fixes, including a reworked sidebar, were merged.
The screen reader support from Symphony was ported and included in the AOO 4.1 release (April 2014), although its first appearance in an open source software release was as part of LibreOffice 4.2 in January 2014. IBM ceased official participation by the release of AOO 4.1.1.
In September 2016, OpenOffice's project management committee chair Dennis Hamilton began a discussion of possibly discontinuing the project, after the Apache board had put them on monthly reporting due to the project's ongoing problems handling security issues.
