The Atlassian team are proud to announce the release of GreenHopper 5.3.
GreenHopper 5.3 provides full compatibility with JIRA 4.2, taking advantage of the new JIRA keyboard shortcuts, the Operations dialog box and much more. We are also very pleased to tell you that the 'Labels' plugin (used to implement GreenHopper epics) is now bundled with JIRA, so there's no longer a need for you to install it separately.
Upgrading to GreenHopper 5.3 is free for all customers with an active GreenHopper license.

Highlights of GreenHopper 5.3
In addition to the comprehensive new JIRA shortcuts, GreenHopper 5.3 introduces an improved set of shortcuts and keyboard-activated dialog boxes.
To view a list of GreenHopper's keyboard shortcuts, select 'Keyboard Shortcuts' from your username dropdown at the top-right of the screen. This reveals all of GreenHopper's available keyboard shortcuts in a dialog box:
- Note: GreenHopper's keyboard shortcuts feature can be enabled or disabled from this dialog box.

A wallboard is a type of information radiator that displays vital data about the progress of the development team. Similar to a scoreboard at a sporting event, wallboards are large, highly visible and easily understood by anyone walking by.
Traditional wallboards are made of paper or use sticky notes on a wall. Electronic wallboards are very effective since they update automatically with real-time data, ensuring that people check back regularly.
See the GreenHopper 101 for details.
When you print a collection of cards, GreenHopper 5.3 displays a popup where you can choose:
- header information (i.e. which fields to include)
- number of cards per printed page
Read Printing Issues in Card Form for more information.
Card Background Colour
By popular request, we are re-introducing the ability to display the entire card (not just its header) in the mapped colour for the card's issue type. To colour your entire cards, go to <Tools><User Preferences><General> and select 'Background Colour' (under 'Look and Feel') — see Managing your User Preferences.
- Note: mapped colours are specified by the GreenHopper administrator as described in Configuring your Card Styles.
Plus over 20 fixes and improvements
