How to disable dialog "Whats new in Jira 5.2"

Hello community,

I has upgrade our jira installation. Now 100 employes see the "Whats new in Jira"-dialog. Some employes doesn't speak english, so I want disable this dialog.

I know that a user can set the checkbox, so the message will not commin again.

Is it possible to set the checkbox by default or by a database-script?

Best regards
