How do I manage closed issue that are not released in next version in Kanban

I have recently started to use Kanban for managing a project using Jira.

We are about to release a new version (say 1.1), and while we are still stabilizing the release other developers continue to close issue for the releasing after that (1.2). The Done column on the Kanban board contains all issues that are Done (both 1.1 + 1.2) but I am not going to release all of it only 1.1. How do I restrict the Dome column only to show and release version 1.1?

That's not how Kanban works - you're supposed to release everything in the column and move on.

Not a problem though, because your process isn't Kanban, you just need to do things slightly differently.  Go to plain JIRA, run a filter for all the stuff you want to release in 1.1 and use bulk-edit to set the version to 1.1

I see what you mean. This is probably because we still are in a transition phase where we need to release important fixes, without included a major change that needs a lot more testing.
