As part of the slack integration we are able to choose from a number of drivers/filters as to when a slack notification is sent.
One of the main reasons we want to notify a channel in slack is that a feature has been made available. Whilst many may consider a status of "Done" to be sufficient, a "Done" ticket in our workflow (and I believe, in jira workflows generally) is that a Done ticket is basically code (etc) complete, but isn't available to users until it has been deployed/released. i.e. for us that means it has a fix version that refers to a release that has, well, been released.
I would very much like, and hope others would also find useful, an addition to the slack filter options that allow us to promote a message to slack when ticket is "released", or at least has a fix version set, as this is the best indicator for us that a feature is available.
That's a great use-case! As you've found, the existing integration doesn't have a way for you to do this, and unfortunately I can't think of an easy way to implement this with another solution. The closest thing I'm aware of is using a deployment succeeded notification with the Bitbucket Cloud for Slack app if you happen to be using Bitbucket for your deployments and releases. Even then, that doesn't necessarily help you track specific features that would be represented by Jira issues.
I've passed this request on to our product managers. Thanks for noting this use case!

Hey @Mitch Kent ,
Earlier this year we released a feature in the Slack integration that lets you set JQL filters to be notified against. Consider this JQL filter:
fixVersion is not EMPTY
Triggering a message on an update action with this JQL filter should get you a notification more or less when you're looking for one.
If your existing filter is in basic mode, you'll need to click the Switch to JQL option on the right side to add in your own JQL filter:
Additionally there's a separate feature request in the backlog for notifications when a version is released but the JQL should help out at an individual issue level.
