I’m Sam Irons, a Lead Content Designer working on Atlassian’s portfolio of Agile and DevOps products. I’m excited to write to you about the new release note experience we’ve rolled out to our Jira cloud products.
We've updated our release note experience, bringing it directly into Jira. Now, release notes are contextual, based on what features are delivered to your Jira site specifically.
You can view the most recent 3 months of feature announcements, improvements, bug fixes, experiments and more directly in Jira. To do so:
Log into your Jira site.
Select Help (?) from the top navigation bar.
Select Find out what's changed in Jira.
Find out what's changed in your Jira Software, Jira Service Management, and Jira Work Management products directly from Jira's Help menu
We publish Jira's in-product release notes exactly when a change has be rolled out to your specific Jira site.
Filter, sort, and view new features, improvements, fixes, removals, and experiments from the past 3 months directly inside Jira.
Stay up to date with the latest and greatest from Atlassian. You can easily find out about new features and improvements that make their work in Jira faster and more efficient.
Stop waiting for a change or guessing when it will hit your Jira site. Our release notes are published to your Jira site exactly when the change is rolled out to your users.
Stay in context and focused on your work. Don’t worry about Googling and searching our support websites to find out about our latest developments.
Fun fact: Over 90,000 people viewed Jira's in-product release notes in its first week alone.
At Atlassian, we're customer-obsessed. Our teams are constantly trying to find ways that will improve the way we inform our customers about the new features and improvements that can help your team work more efficiently in Jira.
We're also invested in the future of software development, designing and delivering our products using modern agile and DevOps practices. That includes practicing and perfecting continuous integration and deployment (CI/CD). We were happy to take on the challenge of delivering change communications in our products, where autonomous teams build and deploy features, improvements, and fixes daily. Our new release notes experience puts communication of their efforts right alongside the ultimate source of truth - the code itself.
We can't prove that we're the first to do this. But, we have a hunch that we're the first to do so at scale.
While all that excites us. We're much happier that we can make your experience of finding out about our newest features a better one. We’re excited to help reduce change communication work for our admins by delivering release notes directly to their teams - in-product. And, we're happy to help developers and project managers learn a new trick that can make them faster and more efficient in their daily work.
Our release notes blog will continue to publish a weekly round-up of changes for all Atlassian cloud products, including Confluence, Bitbucket, and Compass. For notifications of changes to those products, continue to watch that page.
Our team is dedicated to improving the change management experience for all Jira users. Please leave us any feedback in the comments below.
