GreenHopper 6.2.1 Release Notes

9 May 2013

The Atlassian team announces the release of GreenHopper 6.2.1, bringing you:

This release also includes a number of fixes.

Upgrading to GreenHopper 6.2.1 is free for all customers with an active GreenHopper license.

If you are using GreenHopper "behind-the-firewall" (that is, if GreenHopper is installed on-premises at your site), you can upgrade via the JIRA Plugin Manager. Before upgrading, please read the GreenHopper 6.2 Upgrade Notes. Please note that GreenHopper 6.2.1 is only compatible with JIRA 5.1.x and higher.

If you are using GreenHopper OnDemand, please watch the JIRA Agile OnDemand Release Summary for the latest updates.



A new look for GreenHopper

GreenHopper 6.2.1 introduces a modernised look and feel that is consistent with other Atlassian applications. Some convenient new features include better scrolling: scroll the version, epic, backlog panels and detail view independently in Plan mode (Scrum boards); scroll the swimlanes panel and detail view independently in Work mode (all boards).

(tick) Click the icon (near the top right) to collapse the header, if you want to view your board on the whole screen.

(info) To maximise the amount of screen available, the footer (containing the version number) is no longer shown in Work mode and Plan mode. The footer is however still visible in Report mode, Getting Started, and when configuring a board.


Right-click menu in Work mode

The handy right-click menu you know and love from Plan mode is now available in Work mode too. In Work mode you can now remove your selected issue(s) from the active sprint, view in the JIRA Issue Navigator, or perform a bulk change:


Epic-based Swimlanes

You can now choose to base your swimlanes on epics, enabling you to view your work-in-progress categorised by epics.

(You can also still base your swimlanes on assignees, stories, or JQL queries, as previously.)


Developer notes

GreenHopper's new look is the result of a major upgrade to AUI (the Atlassian User Interface), based on the new Atlassian Design Guidelines. To implement the same look and feel in plugins that you may have developed yourself, we recommend that you follow the Atlassian Design Guidelines.
