I'm managing a server instance of some of Atlassian products. Some time ago there was a set of RSS channels that were updated when new version of any Atlassian software was out (https://www.atlassian.com/landing/feeds).
These channels seem badly neglected now. Latest reported JIRA version is 6.4. For Bamboo there's nothing.
Proactively looking for new versions is tedious. I couldn't easily find an official page listing latest versions of all Atlassian software, only some company's Confluence page (https://bobswift.atlassian.net/wiki/display/info/Atlassian+Product+Versions).
Subscribing to newsletters is also not an option, because newsletter tend to send tons of stuff irrelevant to administrators, also AFAIK not all versions of Atlassian software are announced there.
So, my question is: is there some resource that will notify me about new versions of Atlassian software without drowning me in great, albeit irrelevant to me, content?
Check this out: https://confluence.atlassian.com/alldoc/atlassian-documentation-32243719.html This is the main documentation pages for all Atlassian products.
Go the products you want. For example, navigate to the Release Notes section for Confluence Server and click on Watch (upper right). Each page in their documentation has this button. That way you'll get an email on new versions. JIRA Software's notes are: https://confluence.atlassian.com/jirasoftware/jira-software-release-notes-776821069.html and so on
Hope this helps
Hmm, it seems OK only for Confluence. For other software I mentioned I don't have active "Watch" button for some reason. And even if I could watch these sites, there is other problem:
apart from Confluence, sites with product releases list only minor releases (e.g. Bamboo 5.10, 5.11) with point releases described in subpages. I'd have to watch the main release site, and add watch for sub-site once minor realease is out to watch for point releases.
That's still rather bad. RSS with all versions, be it major, minor or point was much better solution. Too bad it's so neglected now. It would be better to scrape it altogether.
