Java Compatibility Matrix

In June 2024, Sonatype announced that it would be sunsetting its support for Java 8 and 11 for Sonatype Nexus Repository, IQ Server, and the IQ CLI Scanner. As of July 2024, the IQ CLI Scanner release 179 and Sonatype Nexus Repository 3.70.0 will be split into their own extended maintenance versions that continue to support Java 8 and 11. These extended maintenance versions will only receive critical bug fixes and security patches as defined in our Sunsetting documentation. Versions beyond IQ 179 and Sonatype Nexus Repository 3.70.0 will only support Java 17.

The table below details which versions of Sonatype's solutions are compatible with Java 8, 11, and 17.
