Atlassian Offers Socialized Bug Tracking With JIRA 5

Atlassian today announced the latest version of its software bug and issue tracking tool called JIRA 5. It comes with an expanded API and with more than 30 different integrations with Box, Zephyr, Zendesk and Salesforce.com. It is one of the leading tools of its kind, being used by more than 10,000 customers, including Zappos which uses it for various development projects.

The new version includes a number of socialization features, including activity streams, quick share buttons (see the sample screenshot at right), the ability to like a post, and more. Users can directly link a URL from within JIRA to Atlassian’s Confluence Wiki pages, for example.

Samir Shah, the CEO of Zephyr, says that “JIRA 5’s new API connects development to QA, and gives our test case management tools more adoption because users know they can upgrade to future releases without having to wait on add-on upgrades.”

The software is available today for a free 30-day trial and can be purchased in one of three versions: on premises for $10 for 10 users, on-demand for $10 per month per user and an enterprise version for larger installations of more than 500 users that includes 24/7 phone support, training and administrator certification.
