Jira Software Server and Data Center 8.0 is built for speed and scalability. It brings substantial performance improvements and a more updated look and feel. Together with the new Jira Misc Workflow Extensions (JMWE) 6.0.0, you can make work flow better and faster than ever.
To ensure the upgrade to Jira 8 does not disrupt your existing workflows, we recommend that you upgrade JMWE before upgrading to Jira 8.
If you don't have active maintenance for JMWE, you can renew it here or from the "Manage add-on" page.
Jira Misc Workflow Extensions 6.0.0 supports:
issue.getAsString("priority") == "Blocker"
The Groovy script tester page has been renamed to Groovy Console.
To learn more about the additional Groovy improvements and bug fixes, read the Jira Misc Workflow Extensions 6.0.0 Release Notes.
