Today we are happy to announce the immediate availability of GForge Advanced Server v6.4.0. This is a feature release that also includes minor bug fixes and enhancements.
New Features in GForge v6.4.0
- Sprints – GForge now ships with support for Sprints. Agile shops can create sprints, manage tracker items within Sprints and track the progress of sprints via the burndown charts provided. We’ve also updated the Tracker Query editor to support sprints.
- Trove Improvements – We’ve completed revamped the user interface for managing projects within your trove and added some powerful administration features.
- Project Templates – Project Templates are now a part of the Trove. This allows larger organizations to divide their project templates in some meaningful way (e.g. by department)
- Tracker Workflow – When setting up workflow GForge will now give each workflow status a visual indicator to the administrator letting them know which transitions they have setup up workflow rules for.
- Added Support for CentOS 7 and RHEL 7.
- Debian Support– We now support Debian Wheezy
- modauthgforge – We enabled modauthgforge and use it by default when using SVN or Git over HTTP(S) which is a huge performance improvement.
- pg-pool Support – If you have a separate server for the GForge database we now support pg-pool which implement connection pooling. This will be a big performance improvement for customers using this sort of configuration.
- Post-commit Filters – We now provide the same interface we offer for managing pre-commit filters for managing post-commit filters.
- Training Videos – We have published a series of training videos on our YouTube channel
