Bamboo 9.2 release notes
Bamboo 9.2 is the first in a series of long-term support releases
We're excited to announce our first Bamboo LTS release! While LTS releases don’t introduce new features on their own, they bundle all previously released enhancements into a single package and provide you with continued access to critical bug fixes during an extended support window.
Should I upgrade to an LTS release?
LTS releases are designed to remain as stable, secure, and up-to-date as possible for an extended period. That’s why they receive only the most critical bug fix updates that patch issues related to security, stability, data integrity, and performance.
Even though feature releases may receive more bug fixes in total, most of those bug fixes are a direct result of the impact that the implementation of new features may have on the stability of the software. In general, LTS releases are more stable and they receive support for two years after their initial release date, whereas feature releases receive support for only six months.
In other words, if you require only the most stable and secure software and don’t plan to upgrade more often than once a year, we recommend upgrading to Bamboo 9.2 LTS and staying on it until it reaches end-of-life status (February 7, 2025) or the next LTS release becomes available.
If you upgrade regularly and prefer to be on the cutting edge with new features and improvements, it might be a good idea to upgrade to Bamboo 9.1.x (if you haven’t already) and wait for the next feature release. Bamboo 9.1.x will keep receiving bug fixes until June 15, 2023.

What’s changed since the last LTS release?
The fact that new LTS releases don’t introduce exclusive new features doesn’t mean they don’t pack a slew of improvements over previous ones.
However, since Bamboo 9.2 is our first LTS release, we’ve selected Bamboo 8.0 (our first Data Center offering) as the baseline milestone and starting point for listing all the critical bug fixes and exciting features we’ve introduced thus far.
Take a look at the Bamboo 9.2 LTS change log to get a quick roll-up of the most notable changes.
