JIRA EAP Releases
An Early Access Program (EAP) release is a public development release leading up to the official release of a JIRA version. Development releases are a snapshot of our work in progress, primarily focused on allowing JIRA users to see the new features in advance and provide us with some useful feedback. It also gives add-on developers an opportunity to test and fix their add-ons in advance of an official release.
EAP releases, which include more mature Beta and Release Candidate (RC) builds are available for download and their release notes are listed below. Your help with testing them is very much appreciated!
Note, Beta and Release Candidate builds generally do not introduce new changes, and provide bug fixes and tweaks to features introduced in earlier EAP releases instead.
