Hello Viljam,

Thanks for your posting. We usually write a post on our blog to introduce the most important feature for a release. For past releases, please have a look at the following postings:

http://blog.gurock.com/postings/tag/testrail-release/

For TestRail 2.7.1., it is planned to add separate blog postings that introduce the new OnTime and Jira defect plugins and describe how they differ from the existing plugins. The documentation for the Jira plugins has already been updated on docs.gurock.com:

http://docs.gurock.com/testrail-integration/tools-jira
http://docs.gurock.com/testrail-integration/tools-jira-rest
http://docs.gurock.com/testrail-integration/tools-jira-soap

I hope this helps and please let me know in case you have any further questions.

Regards,
Tobias
