We’ve just released the first sample of Jira Server 7.6 as part of the Early Access Program (EAP) to let you know about the changes coming to Jira.
It’s too early for complete features yet (getting there!), but we’re bringing some important changes to priorities, as a first step towards making Priorities per Project a thing. If you develop apps (formerly add-ons) for Jira, or if you’re using the priorities’ API in any way, make sure you read on here: Preparing for Jira 7.6.
We’ve prepared separate EAP downloads for Jira Core, Jira Software, and Jira Service Desk, so pick your favorite and download the Jira 7.6 EAP today.
What’s the deal with EAPs?
EAP releases are early previews of Jira during development. We release these previews so that Atlassian’s apps developers can see new features as they are developed and test their apps for compatibility with new APIs.
The Jira 7.6 EAP is best explored hand-in-hand with the Preparing for Jira 7.6 development guide. The development guide contains all changes in Jira 7.6, and important new features that may affect apps developers. If you discover a bug or have feedback on Jira 7.6, please let us know. Create an issue in the Jira project on jira.atlassian.com with the component Jira 7.6 EAP.
