I just upgraded to v8.9.0 LTS Developer.
Looked through the release notes for the this and the past few versions and didn’t see anything about the Marketplace going away for paying customers.
Needless to say, plugin developers seem to be similarly surprised (the main plugins I use have open issues around binary release availability, build dependencies for local compile, etc.).
With the Marketplace disabled to the point of not even notifying about plugin updates, it really limits the value in licensing /paying for SonarQube.
Is there any guidance on this from SonarSource around how this should be handled? Are those of us with paid versions just out of luck and we should start researching alternative platforms?
