G’day Atlassian Community!
Michael Andreacchio here. We’ve been working hard to continuously improve the Atlassian products you know and love. Today, I’m excited to share some of the most impactful bugs, suggestions, and product improvements we delivered over the last six months. And in case you missed it, I also want to highlight a couple of other recent updates: 1) our commitment to modern database support, and 2) two new public issue trackers for Confluence that will make it easy for you to see what we’re working on and what we’ve shipped.
At Atlassian, we’re all about teams and we consider you to be an important part of ours. In addition to giving you an update on these improvements, we hope this post shows you what a big role your feedback and involvement play into our work. Without further ado, let’s dive in!
Whether you’re reporting bugs, suggesting improvements, or commenting in Community Posts, we’ve been listening. We take your feedback seriously and have shipped hundreds of product improvements, largely influenced by you. Check out some of the latest feature additions and bug fixes for Jira Software, Bitbucket, Jira Service Desk, and Confluence below.
Over the last six months, we shipped over 314 bug fixes and 52 feature suggestions. We’ve been heavily investing in the quality of Jira and are pleased to share that we’ve more than DOUBLED the number of votes addressed between Enterprise releases by satisfying 10,988 customer votes between 7.13 and 8.5 (compared to 4,981 votes between 7.6 and 7.13). Here are some recent product improvements we’d like to highlight:
Critical bug fixes will also be backported to the latest Enterprise release (8.5).
We shipped over 218 bug fixes and 42 feature suggestions as we continue to invest in the future of Confluence. We’d like to feature a few impactful product updates shipped over the last six months:

We’ve heard from you how important it is that we support newer database versions. To address this feedback, the Server and Data Center teams have focused on adding support for PostgreSQL 10 and PostgreSQL 11, as well as Oracle 19c. For some products, this support has already been announced, for others, it will be added in one of the upcoming releases. We’ve also prioritized adding support for MySQL 8 in Jira and Confluence Server and Data Center and you can expect it coming within the next six to nine months.
For more details regarding changes to database support for Server and Data Center, check out this post.
Last year, we expanded our Server and Data Center public issue trackers beyond Jira Software by releasing new visibility dashboards for Jira Service Desk and Bitbucket. We were thrilled to hear your positive feedback and this year, we decided to share the dashboard love with Confluence.
The Confluence Server and Data Center: recently resolved issues dashboard displays which bugs and feature suggestions have been resolved within the last six months, as well as which version of Confluence they were shipped in. The dashboard includes:
The Confluence Server and Data Center Bug Fix Board includes the following key information to help you better manage your instance and plan upgrades:
