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.
G’day Enterprise community!
The title says it all – we’re excited to share the first Enterprise releases on the Jira Server and Data Center 8 platform, for both Jira Software and Jira Service desk. The Jira Software 8.5 and Jira Service Desk 4.5 Enterprise releases are now available, and they bring with them a host of features, critical bug fixes, and a lightning-fast platform that have all been strengthened and subjected to additional performance and scalability testing. And for the first time, Jira 8.5.0 and 4.5.0 are certified Enterprise releases from Day 1.
