JIRA Agile 6.3.3 Release Notes

17 October 2013

The Atlassian team announces the release of JIRA Agile 6.3.3. This point release contains a number of features as well as several updates and fixes. Upgrading to JIRA Agile 6.3.3 is free to all customers with active JIRA software maintenance.



More accessible reports

We're starting an overhaul of reporting in JIRA Agile. In this release, you'll see the first change of many to come — report mode now lists all available reports on the screen, instead of hiding them in a dropdown menu.

Hide/Show header control moved

The control for hiding/showing the header has been moved up next to the Plan, Work, Report and Board controls, rather than next to the Quick Filters.

Bug fixes
This release fixes a number of significant bugs concerning sprint scope and reporting. Please see updates and fixes below for details.

JIRA 5.1.x no longer supported for JIRA Agile

With the recent release of JIRA 6.1, JIRA 5.1.x is no longer supported for JIRA Agile. This is effective from this release, JIRA Agile 6.3.3, onwards. See Supported Platforms for details. 

New code integration features for issues

If you are using JIRA Agile with JIRA 6.2 or later, the new Development panel will be shown on every issue. This panel helps you to evaluate the development status of an issue at a glance. If you need to investigate further, click any item to display more details, or drill down into the development tool.

Connect JIRA to one of these compatible applications to enable the following:

  • Bitbucket view and create branches, view commits, view and create pull requests
  • FishEye/Crucible (Git/Subversion/Perforce/CVS): view branches, view commits, view and create reviews
  • Bamboo: view the status of builds and deployments
  • GitHub/GitHub Enterprise: view branches, view commits, view and create pull requests
