Weave 2.6.0 has been released on 8 November 2019. This is important news for customers who are using version 2.5.x as it means we will now only be providing hotfixes for 2.5 releases, and any new or enhanced functionality will be provided as part of 2.6.x releases
Note that the Weave 2.6.0 upgrade was aimed at modernising the Java and Jetty foundation components in line with our continuous improvement program and road map. By updating the Weave foundation frameworks we are able to continuously innovate to provide the expected business capability in an ever changing world.

Can I upgrade to Weave 2.6.0 myself?
Yes, however some knowledge of your Weave infrastructure and networks is required. To perform the initial installation, you will require the Weave installer .jar file. This can be downloaded from Latest Downloads page https://bit.ly/2KcZKvH if you have a current support subscription.
What if I have custom bundles?
Custom bundles can be migrated to 2.6 easily and quickly, however, that will only be the case while the 2.6 code is still basically the same as 2.5. As more developments are made in 2.6 the less likely it will be that a 2.5 bundle will work with 2.6, which may mean there could be more effort required to get older bundles working.
