Even good things come to an end. It was a difficult decision and we know there are quite a few hardcore fans of Jira Client out there, but unfortunately we cannot further support commercial development of Jira Client.
This means we have officially stopped any further development and the sales of new licenses and renewals.
We’ll continue providing support for the licenses with active maintenance period and will do our best to fix critical bugs if they arise.
To make this transition a bit easier, we are making it open-source and are releasing a free unsupported version anyone can use going forward. Please find the details below.
Free Unsupported Version
We know there are quite a few talented enthusiasts using Jira Client, so we have decided to make the project open source. You can find the source code and the build instructions here instructions in our Bitbucket repository
We’ll do what we can to keep Jira Client compatible with the latest versions of Jira until the maintenance expires for existing licenses, but unfortunately we cannot guarantee this. Some of the recent Jira API changes required serious re-work of the authentication module for Jira Client, and we might not be able to do another update like that.
