'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.
Do you happen to know what the next LTS version is and when it will be coming out?
I have a community post asking this question here and someone directed me to this post thinking you might be able to help: https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Jira-Software-questions/Next-Server-LTS-Release-of-Jira-after-8-20/qaq-p/2044074#M199358
We don't have a specific version yet, it's WIP, it should be something 9.x (where 2< x < 5). Regarding the timeline it's end of Q3, so customers have a smooth upgrade from previous LTS 8.13.x.
Hope this helps :)
Based on what I know Jira 8.20 has been announced as the next LTS releaseand it is planned for calendar year FY21 Q4.
Unfortunately this doesn't mean that we can fully rely that it will be released in the announced timespan... just thinking about the long delay happened with Confluence 7.13
One thing that can be helpful in a "guess game" is the Jira Development Releases page, here you can see that the Dev Team has not even released the very first 8.20, rather they just issued the 8.19 and this one is at a very early stage.
I hope it will be released according with it's announcement timing, but I'm not really confident about it.
Judging by Jira's end of life policy and previous cadence - see https://confluence.atlassian.com/support/atlassian-support-end-of-life-policy-201851003.html
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!
