Hello Ms.Jessica ,

Its good to hear that we've stepped up to one more level. I'm pretty interested in the speedy performance & faster searches ,boards &backlogs to see in jira. Its happy to hear the pain points has been fixed in our latest version.

Glad to hear @P SRINIVASA RAO

Hi @Jess , 

Thanks for that! 

I see it is starting to be really speedy. BTW, do you know from which version Atlassian planning to provide some LTS version ? Or some changes for Enterprise support ?
