We’re happy to announce our first GForge release for 2019 is available! v19.0 adds a number of new features and comes with a number of bug fixes.
Highlights in GForge v19.0
Sprint Retrospectives – For Agile and Scrum teams GForge already lets you create, track and manage the burndown of your sprints. In 19.0 can now assess and reflect on sprints with Sprint Retrospectives. Retrospectives include a report of key metrics and then allow you to provide a narrative to identify what worked well, what challenges you had and come up with actions and ideas going forward.
Tickets: Related Items – A challenge for all teams is reducing duplicated work. When creating new tickets, GForge will now identify related items allowing you to quickly determine if you are working on a problem that has already been identified and possibly fixed. GForge can show its own related tickets as well as possible matches on StackOverflow.
Offline Installation/Upgrades – If you need to install or upgrade GForge in a secure location in your network on a host that doesn’t have outbound internet connectivity GForge now supports offline installations and upgrades.
Moderated LDAP/SSO Accounts – You can now configure GForge to send new accounts registered via LDAP/SSO to a queue where they await formal approval by a GForge Administrator.
Organization – For customers with large project portfolios you can now organize your project into organizations. Organizations also provide the organization a place where they can collaborate across projects inside the organization.
- The v19.0 ChangeLog will help you understand the changes you can expect.
- The GForgeNext FAQ will answer most of your questions but don’t hesitate to send additional questions.
- Just a reminder for customers still running GForge Advanced Server (v6.4.5 and prior) we are planning on officially dropping support in October of 2020. Please feel free to reach out to us for a free consultation on the planning and upgrade paths.
