We’re proud to present Bamboo 9.4.

Bamboo 9.4.x is the last version that supports Server licenses. Learn what this means for you

Take some time and read through the release notes to learn what we've prepared for you this time. Swing by the Bamboo 9.4 upgrade notes to check for any breaking changes if you plan to upgrade and don’t forget to check out the full list of resolved issues.

Bamboo 9.4.x is the last release to support Server licenses

Bamboo 9.4 will be the last Bamboo feature release available to download for Server, prior to the Server end of support date on Feb 15, 2024. All feature releases after Bamboo 9.4 will only support our Data Center offering. Bamboo 9.4 will continue to receive security and bug fixes in adherence to our Support policies.

We recommend that you upgrade to Data Center to remain secure and supported.

Safeguard your deployment environments against unapproved releases


To help you make sure that a bad release never takes down your whole production environment (or never does that again), deployment environments now let you set their release approval policy. The policy lets you define the conditions a release must meet before it can be deployed. That is, which environments accept all releases, which ones accept approved releases, and which ones only accept releases that haven’t been marked as broken. If you change your mind later, just update the environment’s settings and you’re good to go.

Expiring personal access tokens


We know that for many admins, managing personal access tokens can be a challenge. Although tokens increase security over basic authentication, they can also pose a risk. For example, when tokens are used for short-lived integrations, or when you have no way of enforcing that they're changed regularly.

To further increase the security of personal access tokens, users of Bamboo can now set an automatic expiry date on the tokens they've created. Admins can also decide whether setting an automatic expiry date should be mandatory, and they can set a global maximum validity period for tokens in days.

Accessibility improvements for low-vision and keyboard-only users


To respond to the needs of our customers, we've strengthened our commitment to make Bamboo more accessible. This release includes accessibility improvements such as:

  • adding previously missing ARIA roles, alternative text, and labels for page elements
  • adding keyboard support for click-to-copy and drag-and-drop to many interactive elements
  • updating legacy components with new, more accessible ones
  • fixing incorrect and misleading attributes and keyboard traps
