Changes in Detail
Structure Data Migration
It's now possible to import one or more structures from a different JIRA instance after you have imported projects with the JIRA's Project Import operation. Also, you can partially restore deleted or broken structures from a backup without affecting other structures.

Search for folders and other non-issue items with S-JQL

Special filter for removing duplicates from using Inserter and Extender
It is a typical setup when you use JQL Inserter to place all matching issues at some place in a structure, and then use an extender (for example, Links Extender) to build a hierarchy of relationships starting from the inserted issues. For example, to show all issues from a project with dependencies placed hierarchically, you'd add a JQL Inserter (
The problem with such setup is that an issue may get inserted once by the inserter, and then again added at a deeper hierarchy level by the extender.
To remove such duplicates, use a special "Remove Inserter/Extender Duplicates" filter.
