  1. Your RSS feed is empty.

    (Also, the cool kids use Atom (for good reasons), doncha know?)

    1. Thanks Chad. I've updated the feed.

      1. I cannot see anything in any of your RSS feeds, tried both crowd and JIRA but cannot see anything. Tried in both Firefox 7.0.1 and IE 9.

  2. Hi,

    The RSS feed looks empty again... Tested in latest Firefox and Chrome for Windows.

    1. You should remove the last param from the URL, it doesn't require auth.

  3. Are Atlassian release cumulative?  For example does 6.1 contain all of the changes made in 6.0.X prior to the release of 6.1?

    1. That's a good question that could usefully be added to a top-level releases page. My understanding is that they are, since work is done on git feature branches and then merged to the appropriate release branches. It would be good to hear from Atlassian to confirm it though

    2. Like most other software products, yes. The only exception is when they release a security patch that affects only an old version. Anyway from the user point of view you don't have to care about changes made to old versions, they are only security ones. And regarding upgrades, you can always upgrade skip minor-versions so the upgrade rule is: upgrade to latest major version. 3.latest > 4.latest > 5.latest > 6.latest.

  4. Is the technical announcements blog/rss deprecated now? Nothing since 6.2.7 release and 5.0 EOL announcements.


    If it is deprecated what is the replacement I need to add to my rss reader?
