About JIRA 5

Atlassian JIRA is project tracking software for teams building great software. Sitting at the center of your development team or support center, teams track cases, bugs and defects, link issues to related source code, plan agile development, monitor activity, report on project status, and more.

The JIRA 5 brings together people, teams and other applications through many social business and integration-significant new features. At a high-level, JIRA 5 includes: 

  • "share" issue or search forwarding features
  • embedded "@mention"-support to engage other team members
  • enhanced APIs for remote system creates, updates, links
  • mixed-system activity-stream integration support, and more

JIRA is deployed in 11,300 companies in 110 countries. See Atlassian JIRA customers here
