Reading Time: < 1 minutes

Following on our bi-weekly release commitments, we’re proud to present the next EAP milestone (m03) for Jira 8.0.


Here are the changes in this milestone:

  • Improvements to Java 11
    We’ve done some more work on the Windows batch scripts to allow Jira to run as a Windows service on Java 11.
  • Source files available
    We’ve heard your feedback, and decided to start releasing the source files together with EAPs. The source files for this milestone, and the previous ones, are available here.
  • More changes coming
    We’ve been preparing the ground for more breaking changes that will come in the next milestone.

For all the details, see Preparing for Jira 8.0.


We’ve prepared separate EAP Server downloads for Jira Core and Jira Software, so just pick your favorite here: Download the Jira 8.0 EAP.
