Release with confidence
Shipping great software is hard. And stressful. To bring some sanity back into your release process JIRA 6.4 introduces Release Hub, a single dashboard that provides teams with real-time visibility into the status and progress of an upcoming release from day one of development. Release Hub mitigates risks, replaces time-consuming status update meetings, and provides for a more confident and stress-free release process.
Ensure complete is complete
Release Hub is deeply integrated with all the developer tools that your team already knows and loves. A code-aware JIRA is able to ensure best development practices by highlighting unreviewed code, open reviews, unmerged pull requests, and failing builds. With JIRA, release readiness is tracked from the beginning of every project, so when the release date rolls around, you know your code is ready for prime time.
Work with maximum context
Teams can now resolve JIRA issues even faster with real-time communication in HipChat. From new features to critical issues, HipChat makes it easy to collaborate with your team in real-time and reach done in a snap. With project-specific rooms for build status, code commits, high priority issues, and new versions, all the information you need about any JIRA project is always in a single location and at your fingertips.
Validate workflows in a click
JIRA administrators now have all new tools to help troubleshoot and debug workflows. The new workflow validator quickly scans and identifies potential problems in any workflow, saving admins countless hours of debugging. This new tool also highlights statuses with no exit path and unreachable states, and exposes permission and validation errors in real-time.
Get started quickly
Getting up and running in JIRA is now easier than ever and with a brand new onboarding experience new team members will be JIRA pros in no time. A simplified, customized onboarding process helps new users set up their account and become familiar with important JIRA basics so that they can spend less time familiarizing themselves with JIRA and more time on what's important: The project at hand.
New in JIRA 6.3
Whether you're an engineer, a project owner, or a development lead, a smarter JIRA allows you to spend more time on what matters and less time managing issues. JIRA 6.3 automatically updates issues when a developer commits code in Stash or Bitbucket, meaning a single source of truth for every team member.
Spend time where it counts
Developers, spend time doing what you love: writing code. JIRA 6.3 integrates with Stash and Bitbucket like never before to keep your issues up to date so you don't have to. Administrators can configure JIRA to automatically transition issues as developers create branches, commit code, and approve pull requests. Less overhead means more time for building products.
New in JIRA 6.2
Follow code from branch to deployment
Developers can now easily follow issues from creation to completion right from within JIRA. Create a branch, see commits and pull requests, and monitor builds and deployments – all without ever leaving JIRA. JIRA 6.2 makes development more visible than ever before for everyone on your team.
New in JIRA 6.1
JIRA 6.1 is all about making change happen faster for everyone in the organization. Admins will love the new, modern HTML5 workflow designer, which makes building and sharing workflows a snap. But 6.1 isn't just for admins. We've also simplified the process for adding new custom fields, customizing search results, and even added the ability to branch workflows right from inside JIRA.
Unlock your team's success
The best teams understand their unique work culture and capitalize on custom workflows that suit their needs. JIRA 6.1 introduces a new, modern workflow designer that makes visualizing, creating, and editing workflows a breeze. Our new workflow designer was built for the latest HTML5 standards, making it more responsive than ever, and with full-screen mode you'll always have more than enough room to work.
