Announcing Cloud Foundry CLI v7 Release Plan
Dear Cloud Foundry Community,
We are nearing the completion of the v7 CF CLI and we’re excited to announce that we’ll be cutting our GA release soon!
The exact target date for the launch hasn’t been finalized but because transitioning from v6 to v7 will require coordination and planning we’re sending an initial heads up. We'll send follow ups to this communication once the launch date and associated details become concrete.
In case you haven’t been following the development of the v7 CLI closely, here’s three of many new capabilities that will become available when v7 GAs:
While our goal is for the v6 to v7 CLI transition to be fairly easy, it is a major version bump containing breaking changes and a certain amount of impact is unavoidable.
The previously published “Upgrading to cf cli v7” describes many of the breaking changes that will be included at launch. Although the doc isn’t final, it’s the best resource currently for those needing to understand the change required in day to day manual and/or automated workflows.
At the time of this communication, although the list of breaking changes included in the document linked above is nearly complete, it should not be considered comprehensive.
Once we complete our final review/audit we’ll publish an exhaustive list of the changes from v6 to v7 and we’ll send an announcement to the community.
Automated scripts may break when v7 of the CLI GAs. To minimize disruption and allow for teams to migrate when ready, we will support pinning to the 6.x major version. Although this isn’t possible today, the CLI team is actively working on this capability and will send a follow-up communication with instructions once that work is complete.
Lastly, with the GA release of v7, we plan to update the CF-CLI Minimum Supported Version policy. A separate communication describing the intended changes will be sent to this distribution list soon.
For more information about the v7 CLI, please visit Cloud Foundry docs, message us on slack, or visit our github.

Dear Cloud Foundry Community,This is fantastic news. Our developers are waiting for some of the
experimental v3-commands to be replaced with stable CLI v7 commands.
The exact target date for the launch hasn’t been finalized but becauseHow about manifest files? Do we have to expect any manifest syntax or
naming changes? Will some of the new CLI features also be available in

For now, application manifests will remain the same.
We did recently introduce versioning to manifests, which will allow us to iterate on manifest structure and features more aggressively in the future (and independently from API/CLI version).
