News from Atlassian:
For many years Atlassian Clover has provided Java and Groovy developers a reliable source for code coverage analysis. This dependability has allowed us to focus our development efforts on delivering new features and improvements to our core offerings, including JIRA Software, Bitbucket, and others. All of this has lead to our decision to open source Clover, what we believe is the best way to give Clover the focus and attention it deserves.
Developers are ready and eager to contribute to Clover as they have with our other open-source projects including the IDE connectors and dozens of libraries. Although Clover is already a powerful code coverage tool we’re excited to see what the community will do to make it thrive.
What exactly is changing?
Atlassian will not release any new versions of Clover after the current version (4.1.2). Current Clover customers can continue to receive support for this version until April 11, 2018, at which time all support will be discontinued. Effective today, Clover renewals and upgrades are no longer available.
All Clover licenses are perpetual, which means you can use the last release for as long as you’d like. However in the future you might consider using the open-source version prepared by the community to access new features.
