Does JIRA 6.1.1 offer the ability to customize release notes

Does JIRA 6.1.1 offer the ability to show only resolved/fixed bug in the release notes and not "will not fix or Not a Bug". Meaning can we customize what is in the release notes?

I believe to modify the JIRA release notes you need to find and edit the velocity template in the JIRA source. This requires knowledge of the plugin API. You also need to maintain the template when you upgrade JIRA.

If you would like an easier approach, check out our Intelligent Reports plugin. It lets you design your release notes in Microsoft Word, then fill in the exact data you need using simple point and click rules. No scripting or API to learn.

It even comes with an example release notes template you can use as a base.

Use the JIRA PDF View Plugin to generate your release notes, and then you have full control over what the document contains (customizable content) and how the issue list and other data is computed (customizable logic).
