This change log sets out to give you an overview of what's changed over the course of the 6.10 through 7.6 releases. As 6.10 was our first Long Term Support release for Bitbucket Server, we'll give you a round up of everything that's happened since then.

About Long Term Support releases
We recommend upgrading Bitbucket Server regularly, however if your organization's process means you only upgrade about once a year, upgrading to a Long Term Support release may be a good option, as it provides continued access to critical security, stability, data integrity and performance issues until this version reaches end of life.
