No Downgrade Path

Due to the changes in the board model in this release there is no downgrade path once the 2.3 release has been installed.  Existing saved boards will be converted to the new internal model as they are used.




What's New

New board picker

Finally you have an easy and clear way of accessing your boards. You can choose from your boards, saved filters or projects.

Unassigned issues can now be directly assigned from the card preview

With this improvement you don't need to go back and forth between different views or select the "assignee" column to assign unassigned issues. Open the card preview and directly assign the issue to a team member.
