Issue operations bar

The new-look issue screen puts issue operations on the top of the screen (instead of on the left) in a menu-based toolbar that is always available no matter how far you scroll down the page. It’s a big change, and a huge time-saver!
Common operations are now emphasized more prominently, including:

  • Adding a comment
  • Workflow transitions
  • Adding attachments
  • and more!
