Bloomreach Experience Manager V12.6.11 Release Notes

September 15, 2020

The new maintenance release 12.6.11 is available for general use for our customers and partners. This release includes bug fixes and improvements in core, enterprise and plugin artifacts.

The new versions of these module artifacts have been made available earlier and are now bundled up in this maintenance release. If your project uses such newer artifact versions via project pom overrides, please remove them before starting the upgrade procedure.

We encourage all projects to remain on the regular maintenance release. Using a tagged artifact that is not yet part of a maintenance release should only be done if there is a specific reason and only after testing in your specific project setup.

Update considerations


3rd party dependency changes

The following 3rd party dependencies have changed since the previous maintenance release. If your project directly uses any of these libraries, please validate compatability. For more information on changes in these  libraries please see information from the invidual vendors.
