JIRA Agile 6.6.70 release notes

23 February 2015

The Atlassian team announces the release of JIRA Agile 6.6.70. This point release contains a number of important changes. Upgrading to this version of JIRA Agile is free to all customers with active JIRA software maintenance.


Terminology changes: Plan, Work, Report modes

With the introduction of the new sidebar in JIRA 6.4, we've changed three key terms used on the JIRA Agile boards:

Scrum boards

"Plan mode" → "Backlog"

"Work mode" → "Active sprints"

"Report mode" → "Reports"

Kanban boards

"Work mode" → "Kanban board"

"Report mode" → "Reports"


You'll notice these changes throughout the JIRA Agile user interface. In most cases, it is a simple replacement of the old term with the new term. However, there is one change to be aware of: if the board has a sidebar, the Plan/Work/Report button will be gone, as you can navigate via the new sidebar options instead.


This release of JIRA Agile contains translations for German, Spanish, French, and Japanese.
