Bloomreach Experience Manager V12.6.18 Release Notes

September 21, 2021

The new maintenance release of 12.6.18 is available for general use for our customers and partners. This release includes improvements in community and enterprise artifacts.

Note that no 12.6.17 version was released. We moved directly to 12.6.18 for internal release process reasons. Changes below are compared with the previously released 12.6.16 version.

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

Update considerations

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.
