Have more date nights with Bamboo & JIRA

My list of favorite new things at Atlassian since returning from 3 months leave is as follows: my adjustable-height desk, HipChat video, and (to the surprise of exactly no-one) Bamboo's ever-more-streamlined deployment flow. Having accurate information about what's been deployed, what's about to be deployed, and what state a rollback would leave you in can be the difference between happy teams and teams that cancelled their dinner plans Friday night because they were stuck at the office (*ahem*).

Today, we are excited to bring even more to the Git table with the latest and greatest: the development panel in JIRA. Keep team leads, project managers, and product owners informed

We all have the tendency to avoid things that are going to be difficult – whether physical, logistical, or otherwise. And we do this knowing full well that if we just faced the tough things head-on, it would result in a much lower degree of total difficulty in the long run. (For example, I once went three years without seeing a dentist, and was so afraid of what might be revealed that I continued to avoid it for another four years.) Ahhh, humans. Gotta love us. In the software world, the "dentist"

Branch-based deployments – new in Bamboo 5.2

Shipping a new feature always brings a mixture of emotions, no matter your role in getting it out the door. The sense of accomplishment is sweet, albeit tempered by the knowledge that there are so many cool things that aren't shipping in this iteration... but you also get that spike of anticipatory excitement when you think of shipping those cool things in future iterations. The whole thing is like chipotle-spiced dark chocolate with PopRocks (this actually exists, and should be its own food group). So
