Our team just returned from an exciting week at Atlassian’s annual Team conference, Team’24. And we didn’t come back empty handed…

Released was named Atlassian Partner of the Year: Marketplace Collaboration 🎉

But enough about us. In case you missed this years announcements, here are some of the highlights from Team'24.

New in Jira

In the coming months we will see a significant update to Jira, merging Jira Software and Jira Work Management into a consolidated platform known as… Jira. This move aims to enhance project management capabilities of Jira and improve team collaboration across various departments.

Break down work with Atlassian AI

A notable feature in the new Jira is the integration of Atlassian Intelligence (AI) to streamline project management tasks. With AI, you will be able to divide larger tasks (epics) into smaller issues, or issues into sub-tasks. This allows team members to focus more on progressing work rather than organizing it.

English to JQL

Power users know that the best way to search Jira is to use the Jira Query Language (JQL). But for less technical users, JQL can be a little intimidating. But now, anyone can use the power of JQL. Simply ask the question in ordinary English, and Atlassian Intelligence will instantly translate it into JQL.

Views are coming to Jira

Additionally, Jira now offers expanded view options that cater to different team preferences and workflows. The introduction of a universal list view is particularly significant. It allows teams to manage projects in a format similar to a spreadsheet, complete with in-line editing and bulk modification capabilities. This new view complements the existing board and timeline views, ensuring that every team can visualize and organize their work in the way that suits them best.

And that's not all. Read the Atlassian blog for all the details.
