Crucible 3.0 release notes

30 May 2013

Today we're excited to release Crucible 3.0, which introduces huge indexing performance gains – especially for Subversion repositories – and significant upgrades to how you perform pre-commit reviews. We think development teams will be able to work faster, every day.

If you are upgrading from an earlier version of Crucible, please read the Crucible upgrade guide.

The Crucible 3.0 changelog is at the bottom of this page.

Redesigned user experience

We've made a few key design changes to help you work faster with your reviews:

New global header

The new header across the top of the page makes it quicker to access recent repositories, projects, people and reviews, and has the large Create review button at top center, right where you can find it.

Application navigator

The new application navigator, at the left of the header, connects you directly to your other applications, such as JIRA and Bamboo. Now you can switch between Crucible and JIRA – or any other Atlassian application – all from the Crucible header. No more bookmarks in your browser; we do the job for you. Admins can easily configure which apps appear in the navigator – just click Application navigator in the admin area.

JIRA Reviews tab redesign

We wanted to simplify the experience but still give you the important information you need to make decisions around your issues. We think you'll like it:

Review CLI tool

Crucible now ships with a command line tool that allows you to quickly create reviews in Crucible directly from your terminal. The tool takes the uncommitted changes in your workspace and creates a review for them in Crucible. You can use the tool to create new reviews, and to update existing pre-commit reviews with new patches.  Read more..

Iterative pre-commit reviews

Crucible now supports iterative reviews for both post-commit and pre-commit reviews. This allows you to update the review with new versions of files, and changesets (for post-commit reviews) or patches (for pre-commit reviews) that have been created after the review was started.

Iterative reviews allow your team to discuss changing code in the context of a single review. This lets the reviewers see all the related changes together, and to more easily keep track of comments and defects.  Read more...

Create reviews sooner for new SVN repositories

We've introduced a new approach that splits the indexing process into separate tasks that can be performed in a phased and concurrent way. This allows you to start using core functionality in Crucible, such as creating reviews, up to 15X sooner than in Crucible 2.10. You can get on with your work, while Crucible quietly completes the fine details of indexing in the background.  Read more...

Small improvements

Faster browsing for large teams

Crucible now uses the InfinityDB 3.0 internal database to provide faster concurrent access. Your team gets a better browsing experience!

Quicker review creation

We've optimized some SQL statements in Crucible. You spend less time creating, or modifying, reviews.

Better review creation from JIRA when Stash is integrated

We've improved the integration between JIRA and Crucible. Now you can create a review for all the commits related to a JIRA issue, even when Atlassian Stash is integrated with JIRA.

Diff hunk shortcuts

We've changed the 'j' and 'k' keyboard shortcuts to now work with diff hunks when looking at a review, so as to be consistent with their new behavior in FishEye.

Improved handling of user preferences with session cookies

We've made session cookies more robust, but this may result in your existing preferences being lost at upgrade time.

REST API change

The 'groups-v1' REST endpoint now requires the user to be an administrator – it will fail authentication and return a 403 otherwise.   Read more...

Change log
