I downloaded (atlassian-bitbucket-5.5.0.tar.gz) and installed it on a Linux box, side-by-side to my existing 5.2.2. When starting the server up, I am getting this message

It looks likes the new 5.5 image doesn't lay down jre. Can someone from Atlassian confirm if it is "by designed," a packaging bug or ..?

I just checked, it doesn't appear that this isn't new - you will need to install and configure the JRE yourself and then just make sure the JAVA_HOME variable is set, pointing to the JRE.
