JIRA 4.1.2 Release Notes
18 June 2010
The Atlassian JIRA team is proud to announce the release of JIRA 4.1.2. This point release is a highly recommended upgrade as it contains important fixes to security vulnerabilities — please refer to the JIRA Security Advisory 2010-06-18 for details.
This point release also contains over 40 fixes and improvements, notably including:
- New 'Comment' button — You can now add comments via a 'Comment' button at the end of the 'View Issue' page. Clicking this button opens a large text box immediately below the last comment, into which you can add your new comment. This function is useful when you want to reply to recently added comments. For more information, please refer to Commenting on an Issue.
- 'HttpOnly' Session Cookies — To improve the security of JIRA, JIRA standalone distributions (version 4.1.2 and later) now implement 'HttpOnly' session ID cookies, as indicated in our Security Advisory. Please refer to our Preventing Security Attacks guide for details on implementing 'HttpOnly' session ID cookes for JIRA EAR-WAR distributions.
JIRA 4.1.2 is of course free to all customers with active JIRA software maintenance.
