As of June 29th, 2020, Enterprise releases are now called Long Term Support releases. The security bug fix policy for these releases was also updated - we will continue to backport critical security bug fixes and now when architecturally possible, all other security bug fixes are backported to the release for 24 months. To learn more about this change, view our Community post.
Hello Confluence community!
We know that many of our enterprise customers are already using the most recent Enterprise release, Confluence 6.13, and are awaiting an Enterprise release for the new 7.x platform. We are excited to announce that Confluence 7.4 will be the first Enterprise release in the 7.x series when it becomes available (around March - April 2020). We hope that this early announcement helps you plan for your next upgrade.
Similar to Jira Software and Jira Service Desk, we’re strengthening our Enterprise release offering based on your feedback. While in the past we've waited for several bug fix releases to be available before announcing that the version was an enterprise release, Confluence 7.4.0 will be designated an Enterprise release at launch. We will be using the full development cycle between 7.3 and 7.4 to focus on additional testing and quality.
Enterprise 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.
