Improvements and new features
We prioritized the improvements and features voted for by you, including:
- Bamboo 5.0 programatically combines JIRA versions and release candidate builds of your application for better tracking from the planning phase through to development and release
- Bamboo’s release versioning provides a unique identifier for the build that’s being deployed: know exactly which release version is running in which environment, and see which issues informed that release
- Improved communication helps tame the beasts known as software releases. Commenting on release candidates, broken or approved tagging, and other Bamboo 5 features make improved cross-team communication a reality
