SonarQube 9.9 LTS released

Hi all,

SonarSource is thrilled to announce the release of SonarQube 9.9, the new LTS! :tada:

You’ll find a summary of all the new features added since the previous LTS in the official announcement. You can take a look at the highlights there, see all the great features we’ve worked on since the previous LTS including faster Pull Request analysis, securing cloud native apps, enterprise-grade features for easy operability, security and management of your instance.

In addition, there are a few other items to note since the last (9.8) release:

You’ll find more details in the upgrade notes and full details in the release notes.

If you’re upgrading across multiple versions, you should at a minimum read the upgrade notes for the intervening versions. If you’re upgrading from the previous LTS (8.9), you’ll find a consolidated version in the LTS to LTS upgrade notes. Also don’t forget that if you run a version older than the previous LTS (8.9), you need to upgrade to 8.9.10 first, and then to 9.9 LTS.

Please open new threads for any questions you have about these or other features.

As usual, downloads are available at Docker images are also available on Docker Hub.

Vivek & Chris


A post was split to a new topic: Memory error on upgrade

Has anyone experienced issues upgrading from 9.7.1 → 9.9.0 ? (Asking for a friend)

WRT DB migration errors with MSSQL when updating from 9.7.1 > 9.8.0 = no


@Chris Is there a list of all changes. For example, does it now support NodeJS v16 ?
Thank you very much in advance !

Hi Eugene,

For a list of all the main features that this LTS is adding, you can refer to the Roadmap page where you’ll find more details about what was released during the 9.x cycle.

Regarding the version of Node.JS that is supported, I invite you to look at either the LTS to LTS Upgrade Notes or at the JavaScript/TypeScript/CSS documentation. You’ll find there that, in order to analyze Javascript, Typescript, and CSS, we recommend using Node.JS v16 and v18.


@Chris Thank you Chris! This is very helpful. In terms of NodeJS, I was referring to the message that would appear in LTS 8.9 server UI about not supporting v16 analysis. I know that was supported in non LTS releases of 9.X, and I am guessing now incorporated into 9.9 LTS. Anyway , Thank you for your help ! Much appreciated !
