Customisable card colours

You will be as pleased as we are to see this very popular request satisfied. You can now configure your card colours based on Issue Types, Priorities, Assignees, or JQL queries of your choice.


Multiple active sprints

If you are working on a large, multi-team project, then you may want to keep track of each team's current activity – that is, you may want to track multiple active sprints.

In GreenHopper 6.0.2, if your board's filter is configured to display multiple projects then you can now see all of the active sprints. Great for Scrum of Scrums meetings.

Navigation change yields faster performance

In GreenHopper 6.0.2 we have removed the board selection drop-down, which has improved page load performance — especially on instances that have lots of boards.

You can still access all boards via Agile > Manage Boards, and of course your most recently used boards are available directly from the Agile menu:
