Sydney, Australia (PRWEB) February 2, 2006 — Atlassian Software Systems today announced the release of Jira 3.5, the professional issue tracking and project management software application. Jira 3.5 focuses on convenient time-saving features, allowing users to spend more time working on their projects and less time managing issues. With over a dozen new features and improvements, this latest version continues Atlassian’s tradition of frequent releases and builds upon Jira’s extraordinary ease of use.
“Our whole philosophy for Jira is to make outstanding enterprise software that doesn’t feel like enterprise software,” said Scott Farquhar, co-founder at Atlassian. “Our customers can configure Jira quickly to make it work exactly the way they need. And with this release we’ve included loads of time-saving features such as the ability to resolve issues in bulk and manage group memberships.”
Over 2,700 organizations in more than 55 countries have selected Jira for their bug tracking, issue tracking, and project management needs. Jira’s ease of use, robust features, and open architecture has made it the preferred issue tracking application for organizations of all sizes and types.
The new time-saving features in Jira 3.5 include Bulk Workflow Transition and Bulk Assignment of Users to Groups. The new bulk capabilities allow a selection of issues to be easily advanced, a great time-saver for multiple issues. Group management has been greatly simplified with Bulk Assignment of Users to Groups, an especially important feature in organisations where dozens or hundreds of users are working on Jira.
Other features include a charting plugin for displaying data more graphically, Microsoft Word export, and a Fogbugz importer, and over 50 bug fixes. A complete list of changes can be found at http://www.atlassian.com/c/PR-J/11013/releasenotes.
Whether a user is creating a new issue, tracking older issues, or communicating with other users, Jira provides unparalleled simplicity and personalization capabilities. For example, in addition to administrative-level of customization, each user can modify Jira’s dashboard to give them exactly the data they need at a glance. Jira is designed for unlimited numbers of users or issue types, and it can be used as a stand-alone application or in conjunction with other apps.
