Eclipse Jetty 10.0 will be the first Jetty release embracing the migration of JavaEE to JakartaEE coupled with the newer Java release process.
- Jakarta Servlet 4.0 Support
- Jakarta Websocket 1.1 Support
- Websocket Performance Refactor
- Java 11+ Support
- JPMS Support
The project leadership certifies that the APIs in this release are "Eclipse Quality".
Jetty has always embraced a strong component-based architecture and provided a standalone distribution as a production-oriented executable which additionally serves as a best of breed example on how users themselves may leverage the components of Jetty. The core of Jetty offers a highly scalable extensible IO architecture with which the projects builds HTTP/1.1, HTTP/2.0, and Websockets support. The Jetty project continues to update and implement specifications for HTTP, Cookies, TLS and other standards which are core to the Internet, offering togglable compliance modes where appropriate.
Security issues are addressed when they appear and there is nothing pending for a Jetty 10.0 release.
The Jetty team has ceased providing P2 repositories and that effort has been taken on by a team that uses those artifacts. This resolves a long-standing disconnect between the developers of Jetty producing artifacts for which they had no experience using.
- Jetty Runner is likely being deprecated in this release in factor of a jlink style approach that will provide similar functionality. This feature (and really most any EoL feature) can always be recovered given sufficient interest.

The overall community remains very active and committed to using Jetty and updating appropriately. The mailing lists remain active, the migration to Github was very well received and the transition from Bugzilla has been tremendous, contributions to Jetty upon leaving Bugzilla have been substantial. Stackoverflow remains an important overall part of the Jetty community interaction.
