Version 1.0.0 Release

I'm proud to announce version 1.0.0 of the JiraBuddy Eclipse plugin for JIRA. JiraBuddy has gone into hibernation since it's initial release over two years ago. In the past few months, I've taken some time outside work and my normal life to update JiraBuddy to be compatible with Eclipse 3.4/Ganymede and fixing many bugs. Some of the new features include hyper-links inside the Hover Info feature, better server session and connection handling, and an updated preference page. To see a more complete list of changes since the last release, check out the TODO page on the official JiraBuddy website at

I hope you enjoy JiraBuddy and find it useful. If you have any suggestions on how to make JiraBuddy better, or to report a bug, please send an email to

First Post

Welcome to the offical blog for the PuguaSoft JiraBuddy - an Eclipse plugin for JIRA.

JIRA Buddy is a Jira plug-in for Eclipse developed by PuguaSoft. It provides various features such as JIRA issue summary "hover" and opening JIRA tickets in the Eclipse web browser. For more information on JIRA Buddy, check out the features page. JIRA Buddy is free and released under the Eclipse Public License - v 1.0.

Unlike the Eclipse plugin being development by Atlassian, JIRA Buddy isn't meant to be a full-fledged replacement to create or update JIRA bugs in Eclipse. Rather, JIRA Buddy was created to add various enhancements within Eclipse in order to make JIRA more useful and helpful to developers.
