JIRA Core 7.1.x release notes

We're delighted to announce the release of JIRA Core 7.1, a purpose-built application designed to help teams get their work done.

Since the launch of JIRA Core in October 2015, we've been working hard on improving the user experience in JIRA Core. The great work we started when we introduced the project sidebar is coming to an end, and we've introduced a full project issue viewWe're focused on making JIRA Core work for our users, and you can now create a new, linked issue from an existing issue faster and more efficiently.

We're also committed to improving the administration experience in JIRA Core. In this release, you'll noticed that the Versions page is simpler, plus we've added a few tweaks to the JIRA platform to improve usability and functionality (read the JIRA 7.1.x platform release notes for more details).

As always, we're listening to your feedback. There are a few highly requested items in the works at the moment. We can't give too much away yet, but here's a hint: we're working on a way to let your team visualize their work. Stay tuned for future releases!

Product Manager, JIRA Core

v7.1.0 - 11 February 2016

The Atlassian JIRA Core team is proud to announce the release of JIRA Core 7.1. We've worked hard on improving a lot of features and functions, and we've listed the changes below.

Known bug

We've identified a bug with JIRA platform 7.1 which affects this release. If you've installed or upgraded to this version, and you attempt to install or update an add-on through the Add-ons page, JIRA will report an error. The add-on will be correctly installed, and you will need to perform a restart of JIRA to resume normal operation. The bug should not present itself again. Information on how to stop and restart JIRA can be found on the appropriate operating systems installation guide.

Changes

Project issue view

The new "project issue view" for JIRA Core gives you an expanded view of any issue from within a project. Just click the  icon or an issue link in an issue...

And the target issue will be displayed like this...

This new view works exactly like the regular issue view (e.g. keyboard shortcuts, pagination, inline editing, etc) but you'll get much more space without losing the project sidebar.

Create a new linked issue

Ever needed to escalate an issue, or create an issue for another team that you've then had to link back to your original issue? Well we've now introduced Create new linked issue, which allows you to create a new issue in a different project, link it to your original issue, link additional issues if needed, and decide whether to copy attachments and links. That means you can ensure all pertinent information is available in the new linked issue. The Summary and Description is also copied across, but you can edit it before you save, to make sure it has all the info required. Try it out for yourself, browse to an issue in a business project and select More > Create new linked issue.

Imagine you work for your company's Talent department, you have an issue for a new starter, Alistair, and you need to order him a chair. Now you can easily create a linked issue in the Facilities project, and make sure all the info is correct. That way, you've easily linked the new issue so you can trace progress of the chair order.

Viewing your versions

The drop-down for selecting quick filters on the  Versions  (JIRA Core) page has been removed and persistent 'sticky' labels added in its place. This allows you to quickly filter your versions by Released or Unreleased. The search bar has also been improved.

Editing security levels

We've updated Security Levels so that they're now editable, and finally closed off a  long standing issue .

Previewing attachments

Previewing attachments just got easier, and you can now preview PDF's without having to download them first.

Sub-task bulk editing

We've made bulk editing of issues more powerful, you now have more options when converting sub-tasks to issues, and issues to sub-tasks.
