New features and changes in this release
Classic boards removed from JIRA Agile
As previously announced, Classic boards and gadgets have been removed from JIRA Agile in this release. We haven't made this change lightly and have taken your feedback on board throughout this process. If you haven't read The Future of JIRA Agile yet, please read it to understand the background behind this change.
If you haven't migrated your Classic boards to the new board yet, you will need to do so before upgrading to this release. See Migrating from Classic Boards for instructions.
If you are not sure whether you are using a newer Agile board or an older Classic board, you can distinguish the two via the page URL. When viewing a newer Agile board, the URL of the page will include the word 'rapid' (e.g.
RapidBoard.jspa?rapidView=524)whereas a Classic board will not.
Version Report gadget
The Version Report can now be shown as a gadget, making it easier to view and share. The Version Report gadget is wallboard-compatible, so your whole team can keep track of how they are progressing towards the completion of the version.
Default sprint durations for new sprints
JIRA Agile now provides a number of default sprint durations (1, 2, 3, or 4 weeks) that you can choose from when starting a new sprint. Don't worry if these sprint durations don't suit your team, you can still specify your own start and end dates for a sprint, if you wish. This custom sprint duration will be persisted for your next sprint too.
The 'Start Sprint' dialog now displays the number of working days in the sprint as well, helping you plan your sprints more effectively.
Order JIRA search results by sprint
You can now sort search results in the issue navigator by the Sprint field. Just add the Sprint field as a column in your issue navigator and you will be able to sort your results by clicking the Sprint column's header.
Status of parent issue shown on the swimlanes
When viewing issues with subtasks in the Active sprints (Scrum) or Kanban board (Kanban), you can now see the status of the parent issue in its swimlane header. This makes it easier for you to get all the information that you need about your issues, at a glance.
Supported platforms changes
We are ending support for JIRA 6.1 and JIRA 6.2 in this release. See the upgrade notes for details.
