More Administration user interface improvements
Following on with improvements to the Administration User Interface (UI) in earlier JIRA releases, JIRA 5.0.1 improves the Administration UI by converting more Administration page forms into convenient dialog boxes.
The forms for adding new issue types, sub-tasks, field configurations (+ field configuration schemes) and screens (+ screen schemes) are now dialog boxes, which are easily accessed by clicking a button at the top-right of the appropriate JIRA Administration pages.
JIRA 5.0.1 also has two important performance fixes:
- JRA-27206 - The upgrade to using Lucene 3.0 has caused performance degradation where there are large result sets sorted by date Resolved and
- JRA-27308 - The IssuesFragment panel has a poor performance profile Resolved .
