How to monitor Bitbucket server versions

I'd like to monitor new releases of Bitbucket server to alert me when a newer version is released than the one I have installed.

The REST API provides Bitbucket Server version via the application-properties, but I can't seem to find a list of Bitbucket Server releases other than the 'Bitbucket Server 4.11 release notes'. Parsing that is an option, but fragile.

Is there no RSS feed or other machine readable list of Bitbucket Server releases?

Unless it is still named "stash.json" it is still valid for Bitbucket ....

Thanks! The metadata for the downloads makes this a better option than the maven XML.

Please refer to this answer which contains a list of RSS feeds with links to latest binaries for all Atlassian Server / Data Center products.

This RSS feed can be monitored to check for new versions being available.

Thanks, that looks promising.

Limiting the versions to x.y.z releases (without suffix) matches the most recent version available on the download page.
