I've been assuming a two week break in the LTS schedule at the end of 2023 as we've done in the past.  That assumption is embedded in the Jenkins enhancement proposal for the 2+2+2 Java Support Plan.

The dates with a two week break would be:

  • Nov 15, 2023 - Jenkins 2.426.1 release

  • Dec 13, 2024 - Jenkins 2.426.2 release

  • Jan 24, 2024 - Jenkins 2.426.3 release (assuming two week skip for holidays


With that two week break, Oct 2, 2023 would be the last LTS version to support Java 11, with the first LTS version to require Java 17 on Oct 30, 2024.

The two week break also makes it easier for those who are taking time off at the end of the year.

Are there strong objections to the Jenkins project taking the customary two week break at the end of the 2023 calendar year? Weekly releases will continue during that time, but the time between 2.426.2 and 2.426.3 will increase from 4 weeks to 6 weeks.

Sad that I made so many date related mistakes in a mail message focused on dates.  Corrections below:
