Jira Core 8.16.x upgrade notes
Here are some important notes on upgrading to Jira Core 8.16.
For details on the new features and improvements in this release, see the Jira Core 8.16.x release notes.
Changes to the web.xml file
As mentioned in the Jira 8.15 upgrade notes, we've made changes to the
web.xml file while working on improvements for image attachments. These changes affect paths to servlets responsible for attachments, and it's important that you use the new
web.xml file (by copying your modifications to it) after upgrading. Otherwise, Jira will look for old servers and attachments won't be displayed. Read more about a related issue
