New status lozenges in JIRA
This release introduces new "lozenges" to represent statuses in JIRA. We've switched from the old icon+text representation to make it easier for users to locate and identify statuses. The new status lozenges also conform to the Atlassian Design Guidelines. This blog post explains the background behind this change.
We no longer support custom images for status icons. However, you will be able to configure statuses to use any one of the slick new status colors (categories) in JIRA.

Auditing in JIRA
JIRA now tracks and records a range of activities in an audit log. Find out when a user was added or removed, or even when a workflow scheme was modified. The audit log doesn't record every single event in JIRA, but it does capture configuration changes that can impact users and projects. This can help you diagnose problems in JIRA or can be used for security purposes.
Note, auditing is disabled by default. You will need to enable it to start tracking changes in JIRA.
More improvements to the workflow designer
The following features to the workflow designer in this release:
- You can now scroll over the workflow editor with your mouse. Zooming in only occurs when you press the keyboard shortcut for zooming while scrolling.
- You can easily create transitions with the transition tool.
- The zoom in and zoom out capabilities have been improved.
Improved user interface for issue type configuration
Issue types associated with the project are now listed on the main project administration page. The issue type tab has also been redesigned, allowing you to access the workflow designer or screen designer for the issue type with a single click.
