Bamboo 9.2 upgrade notes
We’ve collected some important notes on upgrading to Bamboo 9.2. For details on all the new features and improvements we’ve introduced in this release, see the Bamboo 9.2 release notes.
While long-term support (LTS) releases don’t introduce any breaking changes themselves, they do consolidate all of the changes we’ve made to Bamboo ever since the last LTS release became available. However, because Bamboo 9.2 is our first LTS release, we’ve selected Bamboo 8.0 (our first Data Center offering) as the starting point for listing the upgrade notes.
For your convenience, we’ve gathered all the important information you should know about before upgrading right here:
Bamboo 9.2.7 requires JDK 8u121 or newer to run
If you want to run Bamboo 9.2.7 on Java 8, make sure that you're using JDK 8u121 or newer. Because Bamboo 9.2.7 uses deserialization libraries that require the
sun.misc.ObjectInputFilter interface, older JDKs, which don't have that interface implemented, will prevent Bamboo from starting up.
We’ve made a few changes to what platforms we support since Bamboo 8.0. If you’re upgrading from Bamboo 8.x or a previous 9.x release, check out the list of added, deprecated, and removed support for various platforms in the Bamboo 9.2 LTS change log .
