How are the charts generated?

  • For versions released in GreenHopper 5.0 or later, charts are generated dynamically.
  • For versions released in GreenHopper prior to 5.0, charts are based on the static data that was previously generated and stored on the filesystem.

Viewing Release Notes for your Released Versions

GreenHopper incorporates a release notes generator that allows you to customise the fields displayed on the release notes. You can generate release notes in either HTML or text format. HTML release notes include a URL that you can publicise. Text release notes are generated in plain text and can be included in any text documents.

To view the release notes for released versions,

  1. Select your project from the project dropdown in the top left of the Released Board.
  2. Select your version from the version dropdown in the top left of the Released Board.
    • The selected version will be shown in a yellow box in the right-hand column of the Released Board (see screenshot 1 above). Note that, in the right-hand column, a released version is shown in a box with an unbroken outline, while an unreleased version is shown in a box with a dotted outline.
  3. Select 'Release Notes' from the drop-down menu that appears in the right-hand column of the page when you hover over the yellow box for the selected version (see screenshot 1 above).
    • Release Notes are not available if your selected version is 'Project Overview' or an unreleased 'Parent' version.
  4. The Released Board will refresh and the release notes parameters will display as shown below (see screenshot 3). Configure the parameters as desired:
    • To add a field to the Release Notes, select a field from the drop-down list and click the 'Add' link.
    • To remove a field from the Release Notes, click the 'Remove' link next to the field name.
