With the recent release of JMeter 5.6.3, you now have the option to select this version when running new JMeter tests on RedLine13. In addition to several bug fixes, there are a number of minor improvements and dependency upgrades as well.
This release of JMeter is compiled with Java 17 and marks the beginning of the transition to that version of the platform. Future major releases of JMeter will require Java 17.
There are a few notable bug fixes worth mentioning. A fix to the Summary Report now correctly displays minimum response times, which erroneously got reported as zero with a recent prior update. Several bugs were fixed related to the Constant Throughput Timer, a popular test plan component. Several of these are related to how variables from scripts are pass through and read by the component.
You can view a complete list of all changes included with this release on the official changes page for JMeter.
This release contains numerous upgrades to dependency libraries, and while for most users this should not cause any issues it may be worth looking at if your test heavily relies on any of these dependencies.
