When will be the next 9.x LTS version come out, with support of java 16 and 17?

Hi everyone,

I understand from a previous post that you don’t intend to provide support of java 16 and 17 in 8.9 LTS, but in the next 9.x LTS.

It may be fine if the next 9.x LTS could be released soon. As you wrote in the post mentioned above, we would get the new features at the same time. However, I have some doubts that the 9.x LTS will appear soon: the current last release is 9.1, while the last LTS only arrived with 8.9 LTS. If we have to wait for 9.9 for the next LTS, it would mean several months from now.

Could you explain your strategy and roadmap to provide support for java 16 and 17 on LTS?


Best regards,

Hi Patrick,

SonarQube 8.9 was released in early May and the LTS cycle is ~18mo, so it would be a year from now at the earliest.


Hi @ganncamp any updates on an expected release date?


We should know something soon.

Hi @jc.thalys,

The 9.x LTS hasn’t been released yet.



Could you please provide us with an estimate regarding the target date for the 9.x LTS release?

Thanks in advance!


The time frame from May 21 to Nov 22 is 18 months, which is the Sonar Source commitment for releasing a new LTS version

I think the required lts should have already been released.


Hi all,

Look for the next LTS in 2023Q1.



Hey all!
