Today, we're thrilled to launch a new look and feel to Zephyr for JIRA. For those JIRA enthusiasts who have been playing with JIRA 6.0 EAP, they have already caught a glimpse of the refreshing and modern style to the leading track everything project management tool. Keeping lock-step with JIRA, Zephyr for JIRA v1.7 has been redesigned to use Atlassian’s new Design Guidelines. It’s ready for the beta and EAP releases of JIRA 6.0 and will continue to work for existing JIRA 5.2 users.
The new look and feel is modern, fast and easy to use. In most cases, the changes are cosmetic while the functionality remains the same. Some of the key changes that users will notice are:
Single top navigation bar with bigger fonts and sizes and a cleaner left side project menu
Rounded edges and shading around boxes
A more responsive user interface
In addition to the UI makeover, we expanded our compatibility with other Add-ons; GreenHopper, Structure and JJUPIN. You’ll notice some of the productivity improvements we've made to make it easier to update status of test executions when all steps have passed or failed, test steps can now be cloned by the Structure add-on and test executions are not deleted when that user is deleted. And like all releases, we made it perform better and fixed bugs.
