What's happening in the ecosystem

  • Spring Boot 3.0 GA release in November 2022. 
  • Servers and frameworks are moving to Jakarta namespace.
  • Java 17 usage will continue to grow.

We're planning to support Spring Boot 3.0 relatively soon after GA is out, as well as to support jakarta.servlet 5.0. We're still investigating whether this support will be side by side with javax.servlet (3.0) with a minor release or if it will be included into a new major release on its own. Java 17 is already supported but not required in Vaadin 23, and will become a requirement in the next major version. 

For a deeper understanding of our long-term roadmap, take a look the highlights of our Roadmap 2022 webinar held in April 2022.

Release model

Starting from Vaadin 23, we're adopting a simpler release model where:

  • Minor releases are released every 3 months. These include new features, and old functionality is kept as deprecated. Upgrading is low effort.
  • Major releases don't have a fixed schedule, but we expect to have a new major every 12-24 months. These include significant dependency changes and removing previously deprecated functionality. Upgrading may require more effort.

We recommend to always be on the latest version, which is stable and also comes with the latest features for your project.

Support

Minor versions are supported for 3 more months after the next minor is released. All major versions are supported for free for a year after a new major is released. 

Prime and Enterprise customers can choose to stay on any major version for 5 years and can get Extended Maintenance for another 10 years. We fix issues you come across in the version you currently use with the Warranty service.
