Do 'status changed' JQL queries work for next gen projects?

I'm trying to use 'status changed' in a query on a next gen project, and regardless of the rest of the query I always get no results back.

I would expect that..

project = NEXTGEN AND status changed to Done BEFORE now()

 would return the same results as...

project = NEXTGEN AND status = "Done"

but they don't. The first query returns nothing, while the second returns what I expect. If I run the query against a classic project then I get the same for both.

Is this intentional, or a bug in next gen projects?

History searches seem not to be supported yet in Next-gen projects, as even simple JQLs like

project = api and status was "To Do"

Don't return any result.

While changing the JQL to

project = api and status = "To Do"

Get's me all the issues which I want.

If you are satisfied with the answer, please accept/upvote so that others are also helped. thanks!

I am finding the same problem. This query does not work on my next-gen board which is really annoying:

project=MYPROJECT AND status changed TO Done DURING (2019-09-16, 2019-09-20)

I'm a big fan of historical queries to get me information about the total number of points in a certain stage for a snapshot in time when I need to do some scope analysis. Would much prefer to be able to do these kinds of queries.
