Jira Server 7.10 EAP has been released

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. Changes 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. You can read more about these changes in the development guide for Jira Server EAP. For any questions you have, reach out to our developer community. Downloads 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 let us know. Create an issue in the Jira project on jira.atlassian.com with the component Jira 7.10 EAP. Download the Jira 7.10 EAP

What is the difference between the different project types in Jira?

One common question that often comes up is what the difference is between especially business projects and Software projects. In Jira Software this is not very clear and as a result I see almost all projects are created as Software projects. Lets go through the differences to see what a project type is and how it can be used in your project. In Jira there are three different project types that you can have: Business project - Jira Core. Software Project - Jira Software Jira Service Desk Project - Jira Service Desk The different project types comes with some specific features. This means that based on the project types you will see a different set of functionality in your project. These are referred to as Application Specific Features. In essence the choice between the different project types define a template that decides what the project you create will have in terms of functionality. If you accidentally choose the wrong type, then you can always change that later and the new choice will again create the functionalities related to the template.   Business Project If you choose Business Project, then you will get the default functions that are included in Jira Core. This project type is best suited for projects that work a lot with tasks. Software Project If you choose Software Project, then you will get the default functions that are included in Jira Core plus the functionalities to work with Agile Boards, Integration with development tools and release hubs for software version release. This is the recommended project type if you work in an Agile way and need the scrum board, or if you work with development so you need the release information or integrate with development tools. Jira Service Desk Project This add the service desk functionality such as SLA's and the Que view. It also add some specific Service Desk gadgets. This project type is useful for projects where SLA's are very important and in projects where you need a specific flow for support. Unlike the Business Project and the Software project this project type can feel very different as the view is arranged in a different way to better fit the need of a service desk staff.   A Summary of the Project Types   Project Types are NOT the same as Project Templates It is very important to understand that Project types are not the same as project templates. Project types define the underlying functionality of the project while templates change the layout and interaction with the project. We will cover the template types in a different blog post if you think that could be interesting.   If you want to read more about project types, feel free to read the Atlassian documentation here.
