New menu structure

Please note that the keyboard shortcuts have also been updated. Type "?" for the latest list.
Future sprint planning
You can now create multiple upcoming sprints, allowing you to plan several iterations ahead. Simply click Add Sprint at the top of the backlog:
You can now view your GreenHopper board on your iPad, e.g. during your standups you can now:
- view the current status of all your stories in Work mode and drag them from column to column
- view your Burndown Chart
- and more
We hope you enjoy the convenience of being able to perform many of your most common GreenHopper tasks on the iPad (we do!)

No longer Rapid by name – but still rapid by nature
In GreenHopper 6.0 the new board is no longer known as the "Rapid Board" — we figure everyone knows by now that it is vastly faster than the Classic boards. The new board has been built from the ground up on newer technology that enables us to provide optimum performance, making the most of your valuable time.
