I did update my bug tracker to the latest release of JIRA
“ The Atlassian JIRA team is delighted to present a brand new version of one of the world's favourite issue-trackers.
We have improved the UI to provide contextual awareness, improving the navigation and usability with features like activity streams and issue history. We have also added the most powerful searching capabilities ever seen in a bug tracker, called JIRA Query Language (JQL). The simple auto-complete entry system makes it incredibly easy for any user to create sophisticated queries.
We have completely overhauled the JIRA dashboards to make it quick and easy for anyone to create and add gadgets, move them around using drag & drop, and share dashboards with other team members. Using the new Plugins 2.0 architecture, we built new dashboards using OpenSocial. This means each JIRA dashboard is an OpenSocial container allowing you to consume any OpenSocial compliant gadgets from either Atlassian tools or other external sources. Conversely, JIRA gadgets can be exposed in any OpenSocial container (like iGoogle, and soon, Confluence).”
A small update how to is following
I’ve made a small script to automate JIRA update as it required most of the time repetitive steps
./update.sh 3.13.3 4.0 /home/jira jiradb
echo Stopping old instance
echo dumping old database version
mysqldump --opt $db_name > $db_name.sql
echo Retrieving latest version
echo Copy old customization. db, port and ajp from server.xml
cp $jirahome/atlassian-jira-enterprise-$new-standalone/conf/server.xml $jirahome/atlassian-jira-enterprise-$new-standalone/conf/server.xml.ori
cp $jirahome/atlassian-jira-enterprise-$old-standalone/conf/server.xml $jirahome/atlassian-jira-enterprise-$new-standalone/conf/server.xml
echo Copy database settings
cp $jirahome/atlassian-jira-enterprise-$old-standalone/atlassian-jira/WEB-INF/classes/entityengine.xml $jirahome/atlassian-jira-enterprise-$new-standalone/atlassian-jira/WEB-INF/classes/entityengine.xml
echo Copy mysql library
cp $jirahome/atlassian-jira-enterprise-$old-standalone/common/lib/mysql-*.jar $jirahome/atlassian-jira-enterprise-$new-standalone/common/lib/mysql-*.jar
echo edit manually and set jira.home
echo edit ./atlassian-jira-enterprise-$new-standalone/atlassian-jira/WEB-INF/classes/jira-application.properties
Note that you will have to update the DB schema manually
