Upcoming bugfix releases

Our bugfix releases follow a predefined, monthly schedule. This makes it easier for you to plan your next upgrade. New bugfix versions are released for three Jira feature versions: Latest version, Jira 8.13 LTS, and Jira 8.5 LTS. We may occasionally skip a bugfix release if it isn’t needed. All bugfix releases include security and regular bug fixes.
