Username being displayed while viewing an issue

We are currently on 6.1.4. Is the issue regarding displaying user names instead of display name been fixed in the newer versions? If we upgrade to 6.2.2, will we still have the same issue?

The issue we have is the following:

https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRAKB/Username+is+Displayed+in+Issue+View+Page+After+Upgrade+JIRA

This page recomments changing the database collation to utf8_bin. This means changing the charcter set of every table in the ddatabase. I wanted to know if this issue has been fixed in versions later than 6.1.4. Thanks

Hi, Could someone please answer my question?

It is not fixed. Some databases allow you to change the collation for an individual columns as well.
