We are currently running JIRA version 5.2 and would like to upgrade to a more current version ~ 6.1, 6.2 or 6.3. In reviewing Q&A on this site, it appears there have been issues when trying to upgrade from 5.2 to 6.3, as well as 5.2 to 6.1 and then to 6.3.
Question #1 - What is the recommended path to upgrade JIRA version 5.2 to version 6.2 or 6.3?
Question #2 - Is there is comprehensive comparison chart available outlining the new features available in each of the versions subsequent to v5.2?
Yup, there was no 5.3 (Full history is at https://www.atlassian.com/software/jira/download-archives ) The reason I said to look at those release notes and not *all* of them is that you're looking mostly at new features and functions (and for changes to stuff you're using too). The "point" releases such as 6.0.1, 6.0.2, 6.0.3 also have release notes, but they will not have new or changed features. The point releases are almost always nothing but bug fixes and when they're not, they tend to be minor tweaks (change an icon, align some text better, little stuff) The other release notes to read would be the ones for any addons you have installed.
