The Atlassian JIRA team is proud to announce the release of JIRA 4.2.3!

This point release contains several updates and fixes, plus a new release of the JIRA Importers Plugin, providing improved support for Bugzilla, Mantis and CSV.

JIRA 4.2.3 is free to all customers with active JIRA software maintenance.

You can read the JIRA 4.2.3 release notes online and also download JIRA 4.2.3 here.

Update: we now have two importers, one for FogBugz Server and one for FogBugz OnDemand. The latest documentation is at Migrating from Other Issue Trackers.

 

We've just added FogBugz support to our new Importer Plugin!

We support importing from Fogbugz versions 7.3.6 to 8.2.27, this is either hosted or installed too! Earlier 7.x versions have not been tested but should work, 6.x versions will not.

This 1.7 release of the new Importer Plugin also provides further improvements including:

  • Importing tags.
  • Improved mapping between Priorities, Issue Types and Resolutions.
  • Importing parent/sub-case relationships as JIRA Issue Links.
  • Improved error handling (errors are now shown in the importer log which displayed in the web interface).
  • Super stream lined CSV interface so you do less reading and you import your data faster.

To use the new importer you will need to have JIRA 4.2 or above. Download the latest JIRA release.

You can read the full 1.7 release notes online. If you are already on JIRA 4.2 or above here is the direct link to download the plugin. Just place the Jar file into your JIRA home directory under the 'Installed Plugins' folder.

JIRA 4.2 customers can also download and install the latest release via the UPM - just search for 'importers'. All feedback can be placed at the Plugin Home.

The Atlassian Confluence team is proud to announce the release of Confluence 3.4.7.

This release solves a problem that caused the Confluence index build to fail without reporting any errors. Symptoms of the problem included missing blog posts, and missing pages in the list returned by the Content by Label macro. We have also fixed some issues experienced when editing a page or document in Word.

How to assign issues?

Hi,

Anyone knows which are the specifics permissions an user needs to assign issues?

I have accessed: Schemes --> Permission Schemes --> Issue Permission and then I had set Assign Issues and Assignable User permissions to my user (that is also the admistrator) but the Assign button just doesn't appear on Issue Navigator screen.

It seems to be a simple permission, but I still have this problem.

Thanks for any help.

End of Support Announcements

At the release of Confluence 4.0, we are ending support for the following platforms:

  • Database: MySQL 5.0.
  • Web browsers: Firefox 3.5, Safari 4 and Internet Explorer 7.

We have made these decisions to reduce the testing time required for each release and to help us to deliver market-driven features faster.

You can stay on older versions of Confluence to support your existing databases and web browsers. However, Atlassian will no longer fix bugs affecting the above database or browsers. We are committed to helping our customers understand this decision and to assist you in migrating to a later version of the database or browser, if needed.

For more details about the announcement, please refer to this page: End of Support Announcements for Confluence.

New Support Announcements

We are pleased to announce that we will are adding support for the following browsers:

  • Chrome, at the release of Confluence 4.0.

If you have questions or concerns, regarding this announcement - please reply to eol-announcement at atlassian dot com.

The Atlassian Crowd team is delighted to present Crowd 2.1.1. This is a bug-fix release.

Crowd 2.1.1 solves a problem that occurred in Crowd 2.1 when using 'remember me' functionality and single sign-on between JIRA and Confluence, or any applications using Seraph 2.3 and later. Also, in Crowd 2.1 we unintentionally broke compatibility with JDK 1.5. This is now fixed, so that Crowd supports JDK 1.5 as well as 1.6.

Find the details of these and other fixes in the Crowd 2.1.1 release notes.

You can download Crowd 2.1.1 from our download centre.
