Support for Java 11

 End of support announcements

In Jira 8.2, we're making the following changes:

  • Removing 32-bit installers. The 32-bit installers are no longer available to download. If you need to stick to 32-bit systems, you can still install Jira by using the zip/tar.gz archives, as described here.

  • Advance notice: End of support for several built-in importers. In Jira 8.4, we will drop support for built-in importers that are dedicated to specific applications, like Asana, Bugzilla, Pivotal Tracker, etc. You will still be able to import data to Jira, provided that you use the CSV or JSON format.
