Jira Server 7.7 EAP has been released!

Reading Time: 2 minutes

We’ve just released the first sample of Jira Server 7.7 as part of the Early Access Program (EAP) to let you know about the changes coming to Jira.


With this release, we’re bringing the following improvements:

  • Experimental REST API to let you manage priority schemes outside of the user interface

  • Fixed problems with images pasted into issue’s description

  • New languages: Italian and Finnish

  • Improved code quality: We’ve started converting parts of the Jira Server code to Asynchronous Module Definition (AMD), maintaining the backward compatibility

You can read more about these changes in the release notes and the development guide for Jira Server EAP.


We’ve prepared separate EAP Server downloads for Jira Core, Jira Software, and Jira Service Desk, so just pick your favorite here: Download the Jira 7.7 EAP.


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 Server 7.7 EAP is best explored hand-in-hand with the Preparing for Jira Server 7.7 development guide. The development guide contains all changes in Jira Server 7.7, and important new features that may affect apps developers. If you discover a bug or have feedback on Jira Server 7.7, please let us know. Create an issue in the Jira project on jira.atlassian.com with the component Jira 7.7 EAP.
