…bringing new updates to your Jira. This time, we’ve concentrated primarily on Jira Server platform upgrades. We’ve upgraded platform components and Java frameworks and libraries. For more information, refer to Preparing for Jira 8.0.
Download this EAP milestone
Go ahead and download and test this EAP . If you’re using the maven.atlassian.com site, download milestone 8.0.0-m0014. Your comments, as always, are welcome.
We’re planning to bundle another batch of breaking changes in EAP milestone 06. This milestone will contain more Java 11-related changes (further upgrades to platform libraries and components), small changes to Lucene (change in Service Provider), and upgrade of AUI to version 8.
Great changes require great effort, especially that we want Jira 8.0 release to be a success. Right now, the plan is to have 2 more EAP milestones before the beta, which is due at the end of October. Then, a release candidate will follow. Jira 8.0 is planned to be out in December 2018. However, that might change depending on the feedback we are constantly gathering. We are currently reviewing the plan and will keep you posted.
Your feedback is always welcome. We are doing our best to address it as soon as we receive it. If you’ve got a comment, feel free to post it here.
