Are there plans to support Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe)?

I have read an article about a way to map the JIRA Agile concepts to SAFe. It is a workaround, not a real support for SAFe. Are there plans to support SAFe in the near future?

For example:

  • Epics on Portfolio level, Features on Program level and Stories on Team level
  • Releases and release trains on program level
  • Business backlog, Program backlog and Team backlog on the respective levels

I suspect that's the direction the "Portfolio" addon will take as it gets integrated into JIRA + Agile.

The blog post referenced is from 3 years ago.  Are there any updated info or plans around SAFE?  Is there a vendor this has farmed this out to perhaps?

SoftwarePlant (the authors of BigPicture) were certified in SAFe and will release a fully SAFe-compliant version in 2016. First is the roadmap (with ARTs, program increments, cadences and so on) in Q1.
