SERVER DATA CENTERAccessibility: Text spacing
Following on the accessibility theme, we’ve added a new option to your personal accessibility settings. Now, you can increase text spacing, just to split all these little characters for better readability. As with all other settings, you can view and configure them in Profile > Accessibility.

SERVER DATA CENTERNeed a tailored upgrade path?
Back in Jira 8.0, we created the Pre-upgrade planning tool that recommends a version to upgrade to, runs pre-upgrade checks, and provides you with a custom upgrade guide with step-by-step instructions.
If you haven’t checked it out already and are looking to upgrade, see Pre-upgrade planning tool.
DATA CENTERGet more from cluster monitoring
Now, no stale node goes unnoticed. With the new information we've added to the Cluster monitoring page, you can quickly track and remove stale nodes and fix the failing ones in your cluster.
This is because apart from viewing the ID, and uptime information, you get the node status (active, no heartbeat, offline) and Jira status information (maintenance, error, running, starting). With this info at hand, venturing on any cluster clean-up task is way easier than it used to be.
To view the information, go to Jira Administration > System > Clustering. Learn more
