Heroku-16 stack has reached end-of-life

Change effective on 01 May 2021

Heroku-16, our stack based on Ubuntu 16.04 Long Term Support, was previously deprecated on December 11, 2020, and in accordance with our stack update policy has today reached end-of-life.

Apps using the Heroku-16 stack will continue to run, but will no longer receive security updates, so should be upgraded to a more recent stack as soon as possible.

From May 3rd, 2021, it will no longer be possible to create new Heroku-16 apps. Review App and Heroku CI functionality will be unaffected.

From June 1st, 2021, builds will no longer be allowed for any Heroku-16 apps, including those used by Review Apps and Heroku CI. All other non-build functionality will continue to work, and existing apps will continue to run.

See the Heroku-16 End-of-Life FAQ for more information.
