We've just released a sample of Jira Server 7.10 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:
- New look and feel: We're updating the most frequently used pages in Jira, following the new Atlassian design direction. We've also changed typography, icons, colors, and made some smaller tweaks here and there. This is the first wave of changes, more will follow in the next releases. We hope you'll like it, we surely do!
- Support for IPv6: Jira is now supporting communication over IPv6. You can use it for all configuration that previously worked on IPv4, however there are some best practices and limitations you should read about.
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 7.10 EAP.
What's the deal with EAPs?
EAP releases are early previews of Jira during development. We release these previews so that apps developers can see new features as they are developed and test their apps for compatibility with new APIs.
The Jira Server 7.10 EAP is best explored hand-in-hand with the Preparing for Jira Server 7.10 development guide. The development guide contains all changes in Jira Server 7.10, and important new features that may affect app developers. If you discover a bug or have feedback on Jira Server 7.10, please leave your comments in this suggestion.
