Work is getting underway on WildFly 19, so it's time to announce the expected schedule. The development period for WF 19 is going to be a few weeks longer than the usual three months, because a three month period would put a lot of the key dates in late December or early January, when many people are going to be focused elsewhere.
The key thing we're looking at in WF 19 is adding support for more MicroProfile specs. WildFly releases are time-boxed, not feature-boxed, but there's already good progress on Fault Tolerance, JWT and OpenAPI; very exciting.
Here are the key dates in the WildFly 19 schedule:
Fri, Jan 10 — PRs ready to merge for all features coming in via WildFly Core
Tue, Jan 14 — All features ready for merge
Wed, Jan 15 — WildFly 19 Beta. No new features after this date.
Fri, Jan 24 — All changes for WildFly Core ready
Tue, Jan 28 — All changes for WildFly ready
Thu, Jan 30 — WildFly 19 Final released
WildFly Core should continue to produce betas every couple of weeks.
