cfc_logo.pngJira is set to rock the bug tracking, agile, ALM and project management world with a release so big that we call it four-point-OH. We’re spending thousands of development hours to turn Jira 4.0 into our biggest product release ever, and we really want the non-Jira users, the unconverted and non-believers out there, to make the move to Jira 4.0 come launch day in October.

That’s why we’ve created our own Cash for Clunkers program (USA readers will know the origins of this name but for all other readers, you can learn about the origin here). Now is a great time to trade in your old, inefficient bug tracker for a free 10-user license of Jira 4.0 or 20% off Jira 4.0, and a chance to win US $4000 cash.

  4. It’s sold in a suite of 40 other tools.

  7. Your bug tracker was written on weekends by a guy in your IT department.

  9. You hit Submit, go get coffee and when you return it’s still “thinking.”
  10. Your dashboard looks like this:
