Today we're happy to announce the release of JIRA Client 1.5, our desktop front-end for Atlassian JIRA.
The most prominent new feature in JIRA Client 1.5 is time tracking and integration with JIRA work logs (available for JIRA 3.10 or later). Here's how it works:
There are other improvements in this version, including:
Before upgrading to the new version, please back up your workspace. After starting new version for the first time, run full synchronization with File | Synchronize menu.
With the release of this version we're changing the pricing for JIRA Client, in order to make it simpler. We're making floating and site licenses obsolete and adding instead fixed-quantity team licenses, starting with 5-user team license at $490. Team license is your best bet if you need, well, a team to work with JIRA Client, and personal and single-user licenses are good if you need only one or two licenses. You can review current pricing options at license comparison page.
All licenses except personal come with 1 year support and maintenance subscription. The price for the following years is now 50% of the base license price, per year. Extending support and maintenance is optional, but you will need an active subscription to run upgrades.
All existing licenses and quotations remain in power at the conditions that existed when they were issued. If you have purchased licenses within 30 days before pricing change, you can return the licenses and purchase again using the new prices.
Thanks to everyone who provided us with feature votes and opinion! We're looking for feedback on the new version, especially on the time tracking feature — please let us know what you think. If you have any questions on the pricing, feel free to contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
