GreenHopper 5.9.8 Release Notes
28 May 2012
The Atlassian team announces the release of GreenHopper 5.9.8, delivering some significant enhancements to the Rapid Board:
Please note: Plan mode is available by activating the "Scrum" option in JIRA Agile Labs.
View Burndown on the Sprint Report
The Sprint Report (previously known as the Sprint Retrospective Report) now shows burndown, and also displays a table showing you which issues were completed successfully during the sprint and which were not.
Smarter Sprint Naming
GreenHopper will now suggest a name for your new sprint based on your previous sprint, e.g. if your previous sprint was called "Bob 1", GreenHopper will offer "Bob 2" as the default name for your new sprint.
Estimate in Story Points, Track in Hours
In GreenHopper 5.9.7 we introduced the ability to choose your preferred Estimation Statistic (e.g. Story Points).
We now bring you the ability to do your tracking in hours, if you wish. This means that, for example, you can now choose to use Story Points for estimation, but time-tracking for burndown.
Enter your Estimation Statistic before starting a Sprint
If you do not have an Estimation Statistic applied to an issue, you will receive a warning when starting the sprint (unless your Estimate Statistic is set to Issue Count, which is calculated automatically).
Remove Issue from Active Sprint
By popular request, you can now remove an issue from an in-progress sprint in Work mode. Simply click an issue to display its Detail View on the right of the screen, then click the cog icon:
Resolve Parent when Sub-Tasks are Done
Once all the sub-tasks have been completed, it's time to resolve the parent issue. In GreenHopper 5.9.5 we introduced a prompt, when you move the last sub-task to the 'Done' column in Work mode, to remind you to move the parent too.
But what if you resolved the sub-tasks in native JIRA instead? In GreenHopper 5.9.8, we now display a button on the parent issue the next time you visit Work mode.
See the Sprint Report when closing a Sprint
When you end a sprint, the Sprint Report will now be displayed automatically.
