Variables in Jira filters

Does Jira provide for variables in filters, or some equaivalent functionality?

The use case: I maintain a Jira dashboard for the team that provides a set of graphs and tables based on filters related to the "current version we're working on."

I have not yet found a way to set "the current version we're working on" in a single global variable that will update all the related filters...so with each release, I have to create a new set of filters and update the dashboard to use the new ones. This seems like such a silly waste of time that I'm confident that there's a better way--but I haven't found it.

Suggestions?

Thanks

There is a function for "latest version" in JQL - as long as your users understand how to use it, that's solved the problem here.

Thanks Nic!

The function I was able to use was "earliestUnreleasedVersion()", which seems oddly-named, and requires special ordering of release versions (i.e. it's dependent upon sort order on the web page, not the dates of the project), but does the job I needed done. The other available similar functions (in case it helps anyone) are "releasedVersions()", "latestReleasedVersion()", and "unreleasedVersions()".
