Hello from the Backbone Issue Sync team – we're happy to announce the release of Backbone Issue Sync 3.8.3.
This release is ensuring the compatibility for syncing a Jira Server and a Jira Cloud project. Furthermore, it is fixing some bugs and providing some UI improvements.
End of Support for Java 7
With Backbone Issue Sync you can synchronize Jira Server instances independent of the Jira server version. We support Jira server 6.3 up to 7.13 which is the newest Jira version at the moment. Jira 6.3 and 6.4 are the last releases still supporting Java 7 (JRE and JDK 1.7). With the next release we will drop this support and continue to only support Java 8. However, we will still support Backbone Issue Sync on Jira 6.3 and 6.4 if they are running on Java 8.
