JIRA 6.3: Untangle Development

Software teams can now easily implement development best practices and world-class project tracking at the same time. JIRA 6.3 is more tightly integrated with Stash and Bitbucket for teams using Git and Crucible for teams using Subversion, Perforce, and Mercurial. JIRA automatically updates issues the moment development of an issue is complete. We've also enhanced reporting in JIRA Agile to give the entire team an end to end view of the project allowing for more data-driven decisions. Combined with

Meet the new gold standard in workflow automation

I've been called many things by many people, and 'borderline OCD' is one that pops up more frequently than I should probably admit. It's just so satisfying when my own records match those of my bank... when I know the next 3 turns I need to make when driving to someplace new... when the issues on my agile board perfectly reflect the state of my project. Ahh, bliss. Now, 'lazy' is a moniker I've assigned myself on occasion, but always with a wink. I love making computers perform simple tasks for

Guest blog: Burnup reports for agile teams

Atlassian's public issue tracker, jira.atlassian.com, contains all kinds of feature requests from our customers. Occasionally, our ecosystem of add-on developers takes it upon themselves to build an add-on that implements one of these features, such as Broken Build recently did with GHS-5513. Meet them at Atlassian Summit 2014! “As a Scrum Master, I'd like to have BurnUp Charts available on the Rapid Board” says GHS-5513.

Nowadays applying a fix to a project is as easy as creating a fork - which conjures up a full remote copy of the project for you to hack on - selecting the file you want to change, pressing Edit and committing your fixes. What if you are at the receiving end of a pull request (abbreviated PR in the following) instead? Using a polished web UI is great and often that's all you need.
