Announcement: Changes to the Security Bug Fix Policy

We are updating the Atlassian Security Bug Fix Policy. Changes will take effect across all Data Center products on March 15, 2024.

What's changing?

Previously, we delivered bug fix releases for any supported Long Term Support release in accordance with the Atlassian Support End-of-Life Policy, and for all product versions that are no older than 6 months.

With our new policy, we will continue to deliver a bug fix release for any supported Long Term Support release in accordance with the Atlassian Support End-of-Life Policy, but we are updating our policy to only support the most recently shipped feature release.

In the event of a critical vulnerability, we will take all of the following steps:

  1. Ship a bug fix for the latest feature release of the product affected by the vulnerability.

  2. Ship a new feature release for the affected product according to the release schedule.

  3. Ship a bug fix release for all supported Long Term Support releases of the affected product, adhering to the Atlassian Support End of Life Policy .

We aim to develop the most effective methods for enhancing the security of our software and delivering updates faster and more frequently. When considering an upgrade, you can be sure that the latest feature release is the most secure and stable product version as it contains the most up-to-date security fixes and feature enhancements.

If you have any concerns or if you require clarification on any aspect of the updated bug fix policy, please do not hesitate to reach out to our support team.

Find more details of the new process at Announcement: Planned changes to the Security Bug Fix Policy.

Early Access Program releases

An Early Access Program (EAP) release is a public development release leading up to the next official release of Bamboo. Development releases are a snapshot of our work in progress, primarily focused on allowing Bamboo users to see the new features in advance and provide us with some useful feedback. It also gives add-on developers an opportunity to test and fix their add-ons in advance of an official release.

For more information, see EAP releases.

Security advisories

As a distributed application, Bamboo's application-level security is important. This document contains links to version-specific security advisories and related documents for the Bamboo application.
