We have just upgraded our own JIRA instance to the latest version of 6.0.1 over the last weekend. And this week, our team members are giving positive feedback with the new features in JIRA 6.
The JIRA interface has been revamped significantly according to the Atlassian Design Guidelines. Initially, there is a slight learning curve trying to find the buttons and links. After a while, we find that it is easier to find information and do common tasks.
The newly introduced Detailed View is one of my favourite feature. Now, it is much easier to work with set of issues without having to switching between Issue View and Issue Navigator. This really saves a lot of time.
While it has been possible to view JIRA on my iPhone previously, the new mobile view for JIRA make it easier to use JIRA on the go. The interface is finger friendly for common tasks and is comparable to a native mobile app. And the best thing – it is free.
