As some of you may have noticed, pre-release version 2.11.0.rc1 is now out. While it should be quite close to eventual 2.11.0, some things may still change but my hope is that all compatibility-related changes are in.
The main goal for doing pre-release version(s) is to have one last chance to find issues related to backwards compatibility with previous minor versions. While we try to keep compatibility according to Semantic Versioning guidelines, sometimes there are accidental changes that violate this. So we would like to find such issues before 2.11.0 is released, and fix issues where possible; or mitigate if they can not be; or at very least document changes in behavior where change is actually intentional. Changes included are detailed here: https://github.com/FasterXML/jackson/wiki/Jackson-Release-2.11 including section "Changes, Behavior", which included likeliest changes that might affect your code. For this release there are so far 3 things: 1. Default serialization ordering now considers @JsonProperty(index = ) 2. Avro format backend will change schema type indicated for `byte`, `java.util.UUID` 3. Timezone offset in default java.util.Date, java.util.Calendar serialization will now include colon (like +00:00) by default (see databind#2643 below) But there may well be other unintended changes. We would like to hear about unknown changes, as well as feedback on above-listed intentional changes At this point I hope to spend at least 2 weeks, but no more than 4 weeks before releasing 2.11.0. All feedback on this pre-release would be welcome: including "it seems to work fine, no problem when switching 2.10.3" as well as reports about issues found.
