Many "business teams" needs kanban boards - that is true, but we have also plenty of teams - not Writing a single source code - that also wants to work i a scrum methodology using milestones (versions) Epics (work pagages) Backlog grooming, Sprints - burn donws etc. Such teams work perfectly today with JIRA Agile but the "Developers panel" make no sense at all for such teams.
I know. There are Agile teams who aren't doing anything resembling "software", but are being Agile. I think if you're in that group, you'll just have to get "JIRA Software". They're not going to build all of the Software features into Core. You can actually turn off the developers panel too, even if you're using JIRA Software to get all the boards, it's a module within the addon. Disable it, and it stops the panel from appearing without affecting the rest of the system.
Not currently possible, as the code is simply "panel appears". Yes, it's moderately simple to implement, you'd need a field on the project to store the flag, a way to maintain it, then a bit of extra hackery in the view screen to enable it to be used. There's probably an improvement request for it at jira.atlassian.com/browse/jra . And Atlassian haven't done it because they've got a vast pile of far more useful things to do.
I think we'll probably get some board representations in core soon. They won't be Agile boards though - if they implemented Scrum boards in Core, there's no reason to have JIRA Software at all, so I suspect the best we'll get is a simple Kanban-like board.
