Atlassian releases JIRA 6

Atlassian just released JIRA 6 with a bunch of new features besides a new and simplified style. You can get a quick overview by visiting the “what’s new” pages or have a deeper look at the full release notes. In summary, JIRA 6 is about:

  • simpler and smarter style with automatic look and feel based on your logo
  • support for mobile devices
  • ease of use and efficiency (e.g. detail view of issues besides the filter result you came from)
  • many improvements for the administration (sharing of workflows, renaming usernames, …)

You can see JIRA 6 in action by visiting Atlassian’s public JIRA instance.

For plugin developers, JIRA 6 is a big change, but the “Preparing for JIRA 6.0” guide will help you to make the necessary changes.
