New Release - JIRA 5 support announcement and other stuff

So it's that time of year again. New blog post! Don't you worry, releases have been occurring frequently even without blog posts. I have just gotten a little behind in updating the blog :)

The biggest change since the last blog post is JIRA 5 support. And the biggest implication from the user's perspective is that you no longer need any server-side plugin to access the "extra" data that we needed to before. Yay Atlassian! I'll be happy to retire that thorn-in-my-side at some point.

Besides that, a whole bunch of stability-related fixes have been included which should make Worklog Assistant run much longer and better for you. I not-so-infrequently get people emailing me telling me that they have left Worklog Assistant running for months! So to the few of you who have been having some problems (Mac users especially), you should be much happier. I couldn't have done it without the help of some very helpful customers who sent me log after log and tested build after build. Thank you! Here is a cat riding a bike for all your hard work:


In implementing the JIRA 5 support, I was able to clean up a lot of cruft and I am very happy with how things have turned out. I also brought in some code from v2 which was nice.

Check out the Atlassian Marketplace listing for Worklog Assistant. Leave a nice review for li'l ol me if you feel up to it :)

Happy time tracking!
