The Atlassian team announces the release of GreenHopper 5.7.2. GreenHopper 5.7.2 delivers some enhancements to the Rapid Board:

  • 'Welcome Mat' — assists new users of the Rapid Board in finding or creating a Rapid View. Designed to help you introduce the Rapid Board to your organisation.

    • Kanban Preset — preconfigures the Rapid Board with everything that Kanban teams need to get started quickly (Scrum preset to follow later this year)
  • 'Number of days in column' indicator — at bottom of each card on the Rapid Board
  • Detailed Card View — now shows additional fields (including Summary, Details, People, Dates, Time Tracking)
  • Remaing Estimate — can now be edited from the Rapid Board (without using the JIRA 'Log Work' dialog)
  • Charts:
    • Moving Average Cycle Time — graphed over time
    • Introductory Chart screen — explains the use and meaning of the different charts on the Rapid Board
    • Filtering — filter the Cycle Time chart by swimlane, quick filter, time, column

(The Rapid Board is a new way to visualise and interact with cards. Please note that the Rapid Board is in pre-release mode and as such can be enabled via GreenHopper Labs.)

Upgrading to GreenHopper 5.7.2 is free for all customers with an active GreenHopper license.
