Fixed issue with date picker fields in the JQL section. πŸ—“οΈ

Fixed: Group-by field in JQL table caused extra spaces. βœ…

When a group-by field is added to the table layout of a JQL section, extra empty spaces were getting added to the each row of the table. This issue has been fixed now.


Fixed! Incomplete table bottom borders in PDFs. πŸ› οΈ

In generating PDFs containing tables, when a table's content extends beyond a single page, on the initial page, the absence of a bottom border for the table creates an incomplete visual. This has been fixed thus presenting a cohesive table.


Ability to hide orphan label of a Jira field in sequential layout πŸ˜‡

Implement an automatic feature that hides the label variable of a Jira field when the field is empty for certain issues in your JQL section's sequential layout, resulting in a cleaner and more precise presentation of information for your Jira issues.


Custom variables for greater flexibility and customization of your templates. 🀩

Are you a team who do not use versions or sprints within Jira? Are you someone who is trying to create customized release notes for multiple customers in one go? Create super-customized release notes quickly and easily with the new custom variables feature in ARN. Configure your own custom variables and deploy them within your template body, JQLs, release pages, and widgets. Values for custom variables are passed during template previews or rule executions, enabling you to use one template for multiple purposes.

Pipe character issue fixed πŸ”¨

Using a pipe character ( | ) within a template body would sometimes cause the output of that template to break. This was especially true when using the pipe character within a JSON template. The issue was caused by a recent update that added support for operators within date variables. The issue has been fixed.
