No Downgrade path from pre 2.3 releases

Due to the changes in the board model in the 2.3 release there is no downgrade path once the 2.3 release has been installed.  If you are upgrading from the 2.2 release or before, existing saved boards will be converted to the new internal model as they are used.



What's New

  • New Issue Links functionality to show the different issue relationships within a board, using configurable coloured arrows.
  • Visual dependencies between issues. Critical feature for teams using the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) to enterprise-scale their Agile development. More info here.


Updates and Bug fixes

  • Fix issue where story points that did not belong to the Fibonacci series were not properly sorted.
  • "Manage fields" menu item is now called "Configuration"
