More ADG goodness...
Reviewing code is the core activity when you're using Crucible, so it's important for that experience to be as good as possible. For Crucible 3.5 we've applied the new Atlassian Design Guidelines to review comments:
- The comments design has been aligned with other Atlassian products, such as Confluence and Stash.
- A blue bar on the right helps you to track the focused comment when navigating with the 'j' and 'k' shortcuts.
- Unread comments are easily identified by their blue background.
- You can post comments from the keyboard – just press Ctrl+Enter (or Cmd+Enter).
Better integration with Atlassian Stash
In Crucible 3.4 , we introduced a new integration with Stash that lets you index your Stash Git repositories in Crucible with just a single click.
Now, with Crucible 3.5, we're pushing the integration a step further by using Stash events to trigger incremental indexing of your Git repositories in Crucible. When you add a Stash repository to Crucible, the configuration is optimized so that Crucible only requests new commits once Stash notifies that a push has occurred. You don't have to configure polling anymore, or set up Crucible web hooks in your Stash instance. You'll also get the best network performance straight off.
New REST APIs for automating administration
Optimized memory usage = Many more active repositories
We've added a new passivation mechanism that allows FishEye to take advantage of larger Java VM heaps. For large instances this provides a huge increase in the number of repositories that can be actively requesting data:
See How Fisheye uses memory for details.
- Crucible now supports Java 8. See Supported platforms.
- Crucible no longer supports versions of JIRA earlier than JIRA 5.0.
