Roadmap Lucee 5.4

As noted in the release notes for 5.3.10.97, there will be a Lucee 5.4 release very soon, which will upgrade some underlying java libaries with CVEs

Extension Changes with 5.4 due to CVEs (which is why we are bumping up the version)

  • Lucee 5.4 will no longer bundle older extensions like Axis and Search due to CVEs (and being deprecated)
  • Hibernate extension will be updated to 5.4 (3.5.5 has CVEs and is no longer maintained)
  • Image Extension will be updated to version 2 (factored, 12 Monkeys)
  • S3 will be updated to version 2 (switches to AWS java lib)

We will backport some of the fixes to the 5.3.10 branch / update extensions

Lucee 5.x is basically in maintenance mode, i.e. bugs fixes, with 6.0 being the focus for all new functionality.

Lucee 6.0 has already had some of these extensions removed from the standard install, they are of course still available, just requiring manual or scripted installing
