New colors of issue statuses
To bring more consistency between the Jira Server and Jira Cloud applications, and to move another step closer to the new Atlassian Design direction, we’ve updated the colors of issue statuses, notifications, and lozenges.
Support for Java 11
Following on our promise to add support for Java 11, we’re happy to announce that it’s finally here! Java SE 11 is the latest Long-Term-Support release, so you’ll be able to get updates and fixes for longer. Learn more about our plans regarding Java

Updating apps has never been easier
We’ve fixed several issues that caused performance degradation in large Jira instances when installing or updating the Marketplace apps. Until now, every update of an app could make Jira slow down or even freeze for some time. If you’ve encountered this problem before, it’s way better now, so feel free to update your apps anytime. You can read more about this fix here.
Exporting all the issues you need
To avoid memory problems, Jira had a default limit of 1000 when exporting issues to CSV. Though we’ve decided to keep the default limit in place, we’ve reduced the amount of memory needed during the export so you can increase the limit and export more issues in one go. In our tests, exporting 100K issues (each with 10 custom field values) required 57MB of memory compared to almost 2GB before this change. You can read more about this fix here.
You can safely increase the limit, but keep in mind that many big exports will still affect Jira performance. To change the limit, have a look at Jira advanced settings.
