Release from polyelectrolyte multilayer microcapsules represents one of the most important steps enabling practical use of the microcapsules. A number of biological and non-biological applications are envisaged by proper encapsulation of molecules of interest and their release performance. Since the invention of the microcapsules at the Max-Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces in 1998 the work towards microcapsule assisted release has undergone tremendous progress. Almost simultaneously with development of release approaches an extensive base of applications has been advanced. In this progress report the release from the capsules in a solution and those immobilized on the surface of polymeric films is addressed.
