Where can I find a roadmap/plan with the (next)LTS?

Eric C I'm New Here Jul 09, 2021


'been searching for a while now... could find JSW Release Notes but could not find a Plan / Roadmap with the next planned JSW LTS.

Current is 8.13, 8.16 is delivered (that has JRASERVER-4812 which is what I am interested in), 8.18 is also delivered. But since we only take LTS, I cannot plan my activities (or if we should look for a workaround meanwhile) if I don't know when we will upgrade.

Hi Eric,

Judging by Jira's end of life policy and previous cadence - see

Jira 8.5 was released October 2019

Jira 8.13 was released October 2020

Jira 8.20/8.21(?) should be released October 2021

Atlassian only ever support 2 LTS versions for an application, e.g. Confluence 6.13 LTS has had its life extended until the next LTS comes out. This is based on fact that each version gets 2 years of support and an LTS is released at least every 12 months.

Hope that helps!

Cheers, Jimmy

That's probably a good guess Jimmy.

But I was after an official and reliable roadmap from Atlassian, which I can use to make my own reliable plans.
