The PrimeKey SignServer team is proud to announce the release of SignServer 5.0.
For this major release, our focus has been on getting our technology stack up to date.
The libraries and internal dependencies used by SignServer has been upgraded to later versions making the software up-to-date and prepared for taking advantage of new features in the platform.
Support for later application server versions such as WildFly 14 and JBoss EAP 7 has been added, allowing running SignServer on more up-to-date application servers.
Initial support has also been added for running SignServer on Java 11 when using a compatible application server. Note that Java 8 is still the recommended and most thoroughly tested version, and also the recommended version for other PrimeKey software.
For more information on supported software versions, see the Prerequisites section in the installation guide.
Improved Installation Guide
The SignServer installation guide has been restructured and improved, making it easier to follow when installing SignServer for the first time. Additionally, the release information including upgrade instructions has been restructured to ease findability.
No database changes are required for this release but minimum requirements for Java is now version 8 together with a Java EE 7+ application server. Review the SignServer Upgrade Notes for information on changes and requirements to be aware of when upgrading SignServer.
