Book Update

The third update of Practical JIRA Administration for JIRA 6 has just gone into production at O'Reilly.
Apart from the updates for the new features in JIRA 6 I've also added a chapter about JIRA Migrations,  with lots of advice about moving data into JIRA from other systems.

All the good bugs are old bugs?

JIRA lets you vote on issues, and Atlassian's own JIRA instance has a few issues with thousands of votes. I wondered if there were any popular issues that had been created recently so I plotted the number of votes against when each issue was created.

The result is shown below. I think it means that Atlassian are already aware of what people really want from their product, or perhaps that they're doing a good job closing new issues as duplicates of older ones. What other meanings can you take from this chart?

Book Update

Now that JIRA 6.0 has been released I've started the update for Practical JIRA Administration. If you have any changes you'd like to suggest for the book then now is a good time to contact me.

Where's Matt?

This blog's been quiet for a while now due to my consulting work at CustomWare ramping up. We're always looking for more consultants to help with the load. It's never the same day twice!

Both of the O'Reilly JIRA books were updated, and Practical JIRA Administration is scheduled to be updated for JIRA 6.0 in the next few months.

And my personal choice for the most useful JIRA add-on for JIRA administrators is Script Runner by Jamie Echlin. His hours of work have saved me hours of work. Thanks!
