How to burndown in agile board not using the far right column?

We want to improve our reporting in Jira Agile. Our situation is as follows:

Right now the burndown occurs after we do a release (after we verify our items are workin on the live site we move to "Done"). This means that as it stands now we see no burndown until release day which makes our reporting totally useless instead of being transparent.

1.) How can i configure the boards to burndown once an issue is moved to "development complete" instead of needing to wait until release day?

2.) I ideally want to do this in the agile board so its all in one place. Is there a way to do this? If there is not a way to do this what is the next best solution?

As an additional note this would be a non-issue if we were in continuous integration but we are not there yet, so this is why I need this exception.

Based on this issue (https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/GHS-5522), I don't think your request will be fulfilled.

Is there a way to do this? If there is not a way to do this what is the next best solution?

Have a second Kanban board that starts at the end of the development process. You can then use the Kanban reports to track the release (https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/AGILE/Tutorial+-+Tracking+a+Kanban+Team)?

Thanks for the great answer. I'll watch that request going forward.
