Upgrade JIRA from 3.x to 6.x

We just upgraded from JIRA 3.xx to JIRA 6.xx. We need a consolidated training material to cover the following: 1) major difference btw 3 and 6. 2) Major advanced functionality in JIRA since v4-v6. Does Atlassinan have such mtk material?

Well you can see the new feature from the release notes :

Also they have video on youtube example (Jira 4 overview): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qtLKfdSDYj4

Yup, I'd read all the mid-level release notes - 4.0, 4.1, 4.2 ... 5.0, 5.1... 6.0, 6.1... but skip the "point" releases, as they're mostly bug fixes and don't really affect the functionality.
