The latest Long Term Support release is here: Bitbucket 7.6

 

In case you missed it: In July, we renamed Enterprise releases to Long Term Support releases and expanded our security bug fix policy. We will continue to backport critical security bug fixes and now when architecturally possible we will also backport all other security bug fixes to Long Term Support releases.

 

G’day Bitbucket Community!

We’re excited to share with you that the latest Long Term Support (LTS) release, Bitbucket 7.6, is now available. Keep reading for an LTS release refresher, highlights of what we’ve shipped since 6.10, and resources to help you have a successful upgrade.

LTS 101

LTS releases receive backported critical security and product bug fixes, and when architecturally possible, all other security bug fixes throughout their two-year standard support window. This long-term support makes LTS releases ideal for those of you with especially complex instances who can’t perform a major feature upgrade more than once a year.

The best of Bitbucket: 6.10 - 7.6

We know that many of you on 6.10 (the last Bitbucket LTS release) have been awaiting an LTS release on the new 7.x platform. Now, with the Bitbucket 7.6 LTS release, you’ll reap the benefits of the Bitbucket 7 platform and everything we’ve shipped since (which is… a lot). Here are some highlights:

Next-level enterprise features for Data Center

Advanced user management
Security, compliance, and governance
  • Advanced auditing gives you the visibility and security-relevant digital records needed to help demonstrate compliance, strengthen security, and improve workflow

  • Control over who can delete repositories helps you secure your data via a new Global Permissions policy

  • Push logs that allow admins to track every push to a specific branch in a repository (also available in Server)

  • Expiring personal access tokens help you to secure short-lived integrations and comply with token rotation requirements (also available in Server)

An enhanced developer experience

  • Integrated CI/CD with two new ways to get feedback on code - the Builds page and the Builds tab - designed to help you avoid switching tools

  • New pull request experience that makes code reviewing smoother, more enjoyable, and less of a tedious task with 2x faster content loading while switching between diffs

  • Pull request task improvements include the ability to create tasks in your pull your requests without having to write a comment first, convert comments into tasks, and support for Markdown and rich content like code snippets

  • View hidden comments for more context on why code has changed throughout a pull request

  • Pull request filtering makes it easier to locate pull requests in a repository with filters for status, author, branch, reviewer, and by text that is in the title or description

  • New webhook, Source Branch updated, that is triggered for source branch updates in a pull request

  • Prioritization of exact name matches when searching for a branch by its name means no more scrolling through an alphabetized list of branch results that contain the text

  • And much more!

Could you explain what is LTS? Is it similar to "latest stable version"? 

We are using v7.1.1 and not having any issue right now. Should we upgrade to LTS?

Our BitBucket is installing on Windows server. I can simply execute the install wizard to perform upgrade? Thanks.
