Announcing Bitbucket 7.17 as the next LTS

G’day, Bitbucket Community!

We know that many of our enterprise customers are already using the most recent LTS (Long Term Support) release, Bitbucket 7.6, and are awaiting the next LTS release for all of the great features and functionality that have shipped since. We are excited to announce that Bitbucket 7.17 will be the next LTS release of the 7.x series when it becomes available (around Sept- Nov 2021). We hope that this announcement helps you plan for your next upgrade.

If you plan to upgrade only once this year, we recommend moving to Bitbucket 7.17 when it becomes available. Bitbucket 7.17 will enable your team to take advantage of all the additional features we’ve released since 7.6, as well as several bug fixes and security improvements that have shipped as well.

As a quick reminder for those customers currently on Bitbucket 6.10, the end of life (EOL) date for that version will be January 2022.  

If you work with a Technical Account Manager or Premier Support, consult your contact for a recommendation based on your environment and upgrade cadence.

What can you expect from Enterprise releases?

LTS releases receive backported bug fixes and security updates throughout their two-year support window. If you manage a large, complex Bitbucket deployment that requires significant effort to upgrade, the ongoing support provided by an Enterprise release ensures you have access to regular bug fix releases, without the risk and overhead of a major version upgrade.

Would it be please possible to get some concrete date when that 7.17 version will be released? As September is closing in, we need to plan the upgrade.

Thank you.
