Published on September 20, 2023 by Matthias Kurz

The Play Team is thrilled to announce the release of the Play 2.9.0 Release Candidate! 🎉 This release brings highly anticipated new features, including support for the latest Java LTS versions and Scala 3.

Play 2.9.0 represents a significant milestone as it's the first major release in almost four years and the first major release entirely driven by the community.

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. This release would never have happened without your financial support! Thank you very much! 🙌
