Hello Confluence community!
We know that many of our enterprise customers are already using the most recent LTS (Long Term Support) release, Confluence 7.4 and are awaiting the next LTS release for all of the great features and functionality that have shipped since. We are excited to announce that Confluence 7.13 will be the next LTS release of the 7.x series when it becomes available (around April - June 2021). We hope that this announcement helps you plan for your next upgrade.
If you plan to upgrade only once this year, we recommend moving to Confluence 7.13 when it becomes available. Confluence 7.13 will be the first LTS release to feature the new bundled apps in Confluence Data Center (Analytics for Confluence and Team Calendars) and will enable your team to take advantage of all the additional features we’ve released since 7.4, as well as hundreds of bug fixes and security improvements that have shipped as well.
As a quick reminder for those customers currently on Confluence 6.13, the end of life (EOL) date for Confluence 6.13 was originally planned for December 4, 2020. However, we decided to extend the support window until Confluence 7.13 is available to accommodate more time to plan your upgrade.
If you work with a Technical Account Manager or Premier Support, consult your contact for a recommendation based on your environment and upgrade cadence.
LTS releases receive backported bug fixes and security updates throughout their two-year support window. If you manage a large, complex Confluence deployment that requires significant effort to upgrade, the ongoing support provided by an Enterprise release ensures you have access to regular bug fix releases, without the risk and overhead of a major version upgrade.
