Hello developer community!
As part of our ongoing efforts to better communicate what’s going on at Atlassian with you, we are standardizing how we communicate technical changes to our products using community.developer.atlassian.com (CDAC).
We now have subcategories in the product categories that are specifically for announcements from Atlassians, e.g. Jira Cloud Announcements. You may be able to comment on the post depending on whether the poster is looking for feedback or not. You’ll see we have retroactively moved our old announcements into these new subcategories.
These subcategories will also augment the changelogs on developer.atlassian.com (DAC), where we will cross post each change from DAC to CDAC. The reason we are doing this is so that you can subscribe to notifications about changes, using the
Subscribe button at the top right corner of the CDAC category.
In order to effectively stay in the loop, we recommend that you subscribe to notifications from the product announcement subcategories that you develop for, as well as the general Announcements category and the Marketplace Announcements category. (No access? File a ticket here.)
Pro tip! Want CDAC updates in Slack? Here’s how:
All categories and tags on CDAC can be viewed in RSS format, simply by adding the
.rss suffix to the URL. For example, the Confluence Cloud Announcements section on CDAC can be seen in RSS this way: https://community.developer.atlassian.com/c/Confluence/confluence-cloud-announcements.rss
With this Slack command, you can monitor an RSS feed like this:
/feed subscribe https://community.developer.atlassian.com/c/Confluence/confluence-cloud-announcements.rss
That will push notifications into the channel where you ran that command.
We hope this allows you to tailor your experience and gives you peace of mind that you aren’t missing something important if you’re not checking CDAC every day. (After all, we can’t all be Sven. )
