jira 7.2.1 released without fixes or updates?

Hi all,

I may be jumping the gun a bit, but I noticed today 7.2.1 released.  I looked at the release notes and it said, "This is a minor release and does not include any fixes or features".   What is in this release then?

Since we are looking to upgrade to 7.2, I was wondering if I should look to upgrade to 7.2.0 or 7.2.1?

Thanks,

Robert

https://jira.atlassian.com/projects/JRA/versions/63206 shows 6 issues in that version. I don't think that security problems are the answer about why so many release notes say that nothing was fixed or added.

Should have checked that version - my bad. Clearly a better answer than mine - or question, really; Why are these not mentioned in the Release Notes? Maybe because they all have a Priority 'Low'?

I've seen a similar release earlier and the answer may be similar to the procedures we follow regarding security vulnerabilities. We don't expose these in Release Notes to limit the exposure to our customers that have not upgraded (or will not upgrade short term). No need to tell the world that there is a XSS vulnerability (or whatever) in JIRA 7.2.0, right?

Ahh OK makes sense.  Since we are standalone server and have a pretty secure firewall, I am not sure that this will affect us, but I will bring it to the management team and let them decide.  Thanks!

As a Jira power user, I was at first doubtful that Trello could benefit my workflow. Jira already uses boards (ones you can customize!), so why would I even need to use Trello?! In this post you will...
