The improvements to JIRA Studio's code review tool make it much easier to adopt code review as part of your day-to-day development practice
San Francisco, CA (Vocus) June 29, 2010
Software development and collaboration tool vendor Atlassian today announced the latest release of JIRA Studio, its hosted software development system that includes Subversion hosting integrated with Atlassian's full suite of tools, including JIRA for issue tracking and Confluence, the enterprise wiki.
The latest release of JIRA Studio, version 2.2, includes significant improvements to the code review, source code browsing and issue editing features. JIRA Studio now includes:
- Crucible 2.2, Atlassian's peer code review tool (http://www.atlassian.com/software/crucible )
- FishEye 2.2, source code browser (http://www.atlassian.com/software/fisheye)
- JIRA 4.1, bug and issue tracker (http://www.atlassian.com/software/jira)
- Greenhopper 4.4, agile project management tool (http://www.atlassian.com/software/greenhopper)
"The improvements to JIRA Studio's code review tool make it much easier to adopt code review as part of your day-to-day development practice," said Mike Cannon-Brookes, co-founder and CEO of Atlassian. "On top of an improved user experience, one-click issue creation and OpenSocial gadgets, this release provides teams with many more ways to communicate about their code."
Innovative side-by-side diff view
JIRA Studio's source code browser has also been completely revamped, and introduces a new side-by-side diff view, an innovative, powerful way to view what has changed between two versions of a file.
Said Cannon-Brookes: "FishEye users have been raving about this feature since it's introduction, and we're certain that JIRA Studio users are going to love it too."
In addition to the new diff viewer, JIRA Studio now includes several new source code-related OpenSocial gadgets that can be displayed in JIRA, Confluence or any OpenSocial-compliant container, and a completely overhauled user interface that is more intuitive and faster to use.
Faster issue editing
JIRA Studio 2.2 introduces a revamped issue editing screen that makes the most common issue operations (commenting, workflow transitions, etc.) much faster. Large lists of issues can now be triaged much faster thanks to a new operation bar that remains visible even when scrolling through long discussion threads.
For organizations looking to make the switch to hosted software development tools, Atlassian supports importing of Subversion repositories, JIRA issues, and Confluence wikis to JIRA Studio. Information from any issue tracking system can be imported to JIRA Studio as long as it's in standard CSV format.
Atlassian will be hosting a webinar on Wednesday, June 30th at 9AM PDT that highlights customers that have made the switch to JIRA Studio and explaining the migration process. Register at https://www2.gotomeeting.com/register/701601250.
