Can the word "release" be translated with the same meaning as the word "version", when it's a noun in a sentence?

Liferay's first release happened during the writing of this book.

    I common English terminology maybe, but in technical terminology tailored by a manufacturer for a product, they may mean the same thing, they may not, or they may have to specific meaning at all. Sometimes "version" will be used to reference a major number of the produce and "release" will be used to reference a minor update or enhancement. For example, for Windows 10, the version may be referred to as 10, but there frequent releases of patches and updates to fix bugs or security issues.

    If you're talking about a product that gets updated over the course of its lifespan, then broadly speaking, "release" and "version" are synonymous. As Russ in NOVA says, for a specific product or company, they might mean different things.

    I wouldn't use the phrase "release happened" because that could be interpreted quite differently.

    Yes, that would be a proper use and translation.
