Latest release 8.7.1 or 8.8?

Quick question - What's New in latest releases | SonarQube says the latest version to download is 8.7.1, but the Release Upgrade Notes Release Upgrade Notes | SonarQube Docs says the latest is 8.8. Which is it, and if it’s 8.8, where is the download for it?

Hi @hheath ,
Currently 8.7.1 is the latest version. 8.8 is in our pipe to be released very soon :slight_smile:
You will find the official announcement here, when it’s done!

I just relaunched docker on GCE to 8.8-community but on System tab I still see which is weird.

Hi @Carine_Bayon ,
I am using 8.7 sonarQube community edition . I installed this on docker with Oracle database using wallet. When I start the server I am getting the below error: Could you please guide:

Hi @pande

Can you open a new thread under Get Help as this is an error, not really the same as your question about 8.7 or 8.8?
We try to keep “1 topic per thread”.


Hi @Carine_Bayon ,
I did post in “get help” , as no one responded , I posted here as I thought you can guide me. I am blocked due to this issue.

Hi @pande ,

a good practice on this forum is to wait for an answer, and not raise 3 threads to solve the same issue :slight_smile:
In our FAQ, you can see that:

I created a topic, when can I expect a response?

This is an open community with people volunteering their free time to provide assistance. We’re eager to contribute to the community, but you are not guaranteed a fast response.

Be patient

  • Wait a few days before bumping a topic that hasn’t received a response.
  • Do not tag individuals not involved in the topic.

Contribute as much as you expect to receive

  • Contribute to the community (helping others) as much as you expect to receive help.

It is not a replacement for more structured support

  • If you need SLAs, guaranteed response, privacy, SonarSource also offers Commercial Support.

I will close this one as you got your answer on 8.7.1 or 8.8 (that is now released by the way).
Have a nice day
