You don't need to close the ticket to update it by:
 - stating in the comments that it is fixed in develop branch
 - changing the "milstone" to the next release version (as develop will be
merged at some point)

It is common practice in tickets usage and help users (like me)
what should be fixed when or not.

Regular releases of isolated features would be helpful too.
