I believe that Simplify is the shortest blog post title we've done to date. I couldn't think of anything better to announce that we're going to simplify our product portfolio naming. In the coming months, we will be changing the names and logos of some of our add-on products with two goals in mind: Make it simple for customers to understand our product list at-a-glance. Make it easy for customers to distinguish stand-alone products from Atlassian add-ons. What exactly is changing? The

Delivering software projects is tricky business at the best of times, particularly when it comes to deploying changes. When planning to release, Ops teams need to know what changes are coming so they can mitigate the risk of the deployment and understand what they'll be responsible for supporting in production.

Coming soon: Bamboo 5 Early Access Program!

We grown-ups don't anticipate Christmas morning like we used to. (Or do we...?) But that doesn't mean we don't get excited about new toys! You may have heard about the deployment awesomeness we're baking into Bamboo 5 at one of our Atlassian RoadTrip stops, at an AUG, or by word of mouth*. If so, you're probably keen to kick the tires on this thing. Well friends, Christmas is coming early this year. In early May we'll kick off the Bamboo 5 Early Access Program (ie, a beta).
