Release highlights

New in this release

Early compatibility with the deprecation of the "Epic Link", "Parent Link" and other fields

Atlassian decided to deprecate multiple Jira Cloud fields which represent different types of parent-child relations. These include "Epic Link" and "Parent Link", primarily. All these will be replaced with the "Parent" system field.

Our app exports the fields affected by this change, therefore the change indirectly affects the app itself, as well.

We designed an approach that doesn't make any assumption about the change and the roll-out progress. The principle is that if a value is there in an affected field, we will export it, period. Therefore, the app will work "as expected" before the transitional period, during the transitional period, after the change has been completely rolled out, and even if Atlassian decides to revert the change!
