Manually update Crowd Client libraries in JIRA/Confluence

Back in the old days, I remember you could always update the Crowd clients that ship with JIRA/Confluence to the newer version.

Is that still true today? I don't see this recommended anymore in the documentation and maybe this is no longer encouraged with Crowd Embedded, and other dependencies introduced with this.

Does this mean we have to wait for the next version of JIRA/Confluence if we wanted to get the newest Crowd library? Or is it safe for me just drop in the latest crowd-integration-client-rest-2.8.X.jar?

Please do not replace the version of Crowd in the JIRA/Confluence unless specifically instructed to do so by our Support team.

We carefully test the integration of particular versions of the products with particular versions of the Crowd libraries. Any other combination may cause problems since we sometimes introduce changes that break binary compatibility.

We also frequently upgrade the version of the Crowd libraries in the products. Are you interested in any particular change that has not shipped yet in the products?

Yes, we're waiting for the features from this fix: Last release of Confluence 5.7.4 contains 2.8.2. The latest JIRA is also stuck on 2.8.2.
