JBOSS EAP 8.0 GA release news?

Latest response
  • Full support for JBOSS 7.x ends 31 December 2023.
  • JBOSS EAP 8.0 remains in beta.

Is there any roadmap update that advertises when 8.0 GA will be released, and similarly a timeline for JBOSS EAP 8.0 update 1?

The latest news I can find is below, appears to have been last updated on September 25 2023:
Runtimes Release Plans

"JBoss EAP 8.0 GA release is tentatively planned for the second half of 2023. EAP 8.0 Beta was released in January 2023. EAP 8 is planned to implement Jakarta EE 10. Planned release dates may be affected by the progress in the upstream community. After the JBoss EAP 8.0 GA, there is a plan to release JBoss EAP XP 5.0 GA as its compatible expansion pack. Similarly, the planned release timeframe may be affected by the progress in the Eclipse MicroProfile community."

Support notes are starting to make mention of JBOSS EAP 8.0. For example:
JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 7.4 Update 13 Release Notes

"JBoss EAP 7.4 Update 13+ contains some bug fixes that did not make it into EAP 8.0 GA, it is recommended you wait for EAP 8.0 Update 1 before upgrading to EAP 8.0"

Things I am interested in in relation to this discussion:

  • news of updates to the roadmap of JBOSS EAP 8.0
  • news of extensions to the support of JBOSS EAP 7.4
  • news of any anticipated support for Java 21 in JBOSS EAP 7.4 or JBOSS EAP 8.0 (I assume this will come sometime in lifetime of 8.0)

I look forward to any news or updates - cheers!

Thanks in advance.


I second Mat's request - and would like to add that an answer becomes more urgent and important by the day.

Also, jakarta.ee states that EAP 8 is not yet Jakarta EE 10 certified. What does this say about the GA date?

Although 31 December 23:59:59 CKT is technically still the second half of 2023, the lack of updates is pretty disconcerting.
