G’day, Bitbucket Community!
We know that many of you were excited when we introduced Bitbucket to the Enterprise release family last January with 6.10. Since then, we’ve renamed Enterprise release to Long Term Support (LTS) release and have updated our security bug fix policy so that in addition to backporting critical security bug fixes, we’ll now also backport all other security bug fixes to LTS releases when architecturally possible.
And today, we’re delighted to announce that Bitbucket 7.6 will be the next LTS release (and the first LTS on our 7.x platform) when it becomes available (targeting Fall 2020).
If you can, we encourage you to always upgrade to the latest Feature release so you can take advantage of all the new goodness we’re shipping for Bitbucket. (more background on release types here)
However, if you’re unable to upgrade frequently or the complexity of your instance necessitates that you stay on a version for a year or longer, then the 7.6 LTS release may be a better choice for you. This way, you have the option to stay on a supported version for longer, with the assurance of backported fixes for critical bugs and security issues.
We hope this early announcement helps you plan for your next upgrade.
