Quarkus 2.16.8.Final released - Maintenance release

As mentioned in previous blog posts, we encourage all our users to upgrade to Quarkus 3. However we understand the migration can require some time so we will continue to maintain 2.16.x for a while. Today, we released Quarkus 2.16.8.Final, the eighth maintenance release of our 2.16 release train.

As usual, it contains bugfixes and documentation improvements, most notably the upgrade to Netty 4.1.94.Final, which fixes a CVE.

It should be a safe upgrade for anyone already using 2.16.

If you are not already using 2.16, please refer to our migration guide.
