Play 2.9 and 3.0 are available now! ğŸŽ‰
Published on November 7, 2023 by Matthias Kurz

The Play Team is thrilled to announce the release of the Play 2.9.0 and 3.0.0! 🥳 These releases bring highly anticipated new features, including support for the latest Java LTS versions and Scala 3. Besides that, Play 3 offers Pekko as alternative to Akka. Also those releases represent a significant milestone as they are the first major releases in almost four years and the first major releases entirely driven by the community.

To find out more about these releases, their new features and the approach we take with Akka and Pekko, please see the GitHub release announcements and the links provided on those pages:

We want to express our heartfelt gratitude to all our Premium sponsors and all Individuals, current and past ones, whose generous contributions make it possible for us to continue the development of the Play Framework. These releases would never have happened without your financial support! Thank you very much! 🙌 You are the best! 💪

We hope you continue this journey with us!
