Chronological replies for threads

For those of you avidly following BSERV-7451 in Jira, you may have seen that Bitbucket Server has been working on reordering comments on threads. In our 5.12 release, activities related to comments will be ordered based on the newest comment in the overall thread, with any reply anywhere in the thread hoisting that activity to the top of the overview.

All other activity types (updates, approvals, etc.) are still ordered by when they occurred, since none of them represent data that can change after the fact.

We may continue to refine areas such as the visibility of replies that haven't been read, so we welcome feedback from you on this feature.


This section will contain information about the Bitbucket Server 5.12 minor releases as they become available. These releases will be free to all customers with active Bitbucket Server software maintenance.

If you are upgrading from an earlier version of Bitbucket Server, check the Bitbucket Server upgrade guide.

The issues listed below are the highlights of all those that have been resolved for the Bitbucket Server 5.12.x releases, and are ordered by votes received.
