All Release Notes: Journey Platform Release 21.11.
Journey Manager 21.11 introduces new status controls for forms, organizations and spaces to give system managers more control on the availability of forms in Journey Manager. The process of deprecating the old Apache Click library has begun in 21.11 and the authentication pages and error handling pages in the form spaces have been re-written to remove the Apache Click dependency.
In Journey Manager 21.11 we have taken the opportunity to upgrade a number of third party libraries. This release has undergone the standard Temenos Pen Testing, Code Scanning (HP Fortify), and Dependent Library Scanning (Whitesource). Some major libraries have been upgraded in this release, these include Apache Cayenne, Spring Security and Velocity.

The 21.11 Maestro release continues the theme of assisting developers to improve productivity and shortening go to market timelines. We have introduced a new out of the box template called Avalon. Note that the Maguire template is still in the product. Avalon provides a modern look and feel and has built-in optional functionality that we frequently see in client developments. Whitelabelling is another often requested feature and our focus was to simplify the creation of a whitelabelled solution. This is where you can have one common template but apply different brandings such as different logos and colour schemes. Used in conjunction with the translation feature, developers can change any text in the form for that brand.
We have updated our 3rd party dependencies to latest versions as part of our on-going Security reviews. There are smaller requests and bug fixes packaged up as well. Please read the notes below for a more detailed description.
