    Hellooo, is there any release notes or such that go into a bit more detail regarding “what’s new” in v7?

  3. Julius says:

    can I have separate report/timesheets on certain combination of Project/component.
    To avoid huge amount of Projects created in JIRA, I intend to create just one JIRA Project per customer and represent every Client project as an JIRA component.
