I've just upgraded to Stash 3.8. Now, when I go to the repository settings, I'm not able to find the branching model entry anymore (it used to be under the menu "Workflow"). Has that been removed in Stash 3.8 (well, I strongly doubt it)?
It has not been removed. I've just checked and am still seeing the 'Branching Model' option in my "Workflow" section in 3.8.0. I think that the plugin that provides the branching model is disabled or failing to start up correctly. You can check whether the plugin is enabled by going into Administration > Manage Add-ons, select 'System' check whether the "Atlassian Stash Branch Utilities Plugin" is listed and displayed as enabled.
Are there any errors in the logs?
You're right, it was disabled.

It's really strange that the branch utils plug-in is not able to start on my Stash 3.8 installation. Do you think that this is happening due to other (Scala-based) plug-ins I've installed on my Stash instance? Have there been any changes in Stash's Scala provider lib plug-in in Stash 3.8 (maybe a version change or some packages that are not exported anymore in the OSGi package)? Any help is much appreciated. Thanks.
We’ve been building a plugin to integrate Bitbucket Server and Jenkins CI, and I’m excited to announce that our alpha is ready to download and install. It lets you seamlessly configure a Jenkins job ...
