FishEye 3.0 release notes

30 May 2013

Today we're excited to release FishEye 3.0, which introduces huge indexing performance gains – especially for Subversion repositories – and search and code visualization upgrades to help you track changes across your project. We think development teams will be able to work faster, every day.

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

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

Use SVN repositories sooner

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 FishEye, such as viewing recent changesets or commits in JIRA issues, up to 15X sooner than in FishEye 2.10. You can get on with your work, while FishEye quietly completes the fine details of indexing in the background.  Read more...

Commit graph highlighter

We've added two new highlight types to the commit graph for a repository:

  • use the Author highlight type to see all the changesets submitted by a particular author. 
  • use the Search highlight type to see the changesets with commit messages that contain the search term.

Redesigned user experience

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

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, on the left of the header, connects you directly to your other applications, such as JIRA and Bamboo. Now you can switch between FishEye and JIRA – or any other Atlassian application – all from the FishEye 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 Source tab redesign

We wanted to simplify the experience but still give you the important information you need to make decisions around your issues. 

Small improvements 

Faster browsing for large teams

FishEye now uses the InfinityDB 3.0 internal database to provide improved performance for concurrent access . Your team gets a better browsing experience!

Diff hunk shortcuts

We've changed the 'j' and 'k' keyboard shortcuts to now work with diff hunks in the changeset page, rather than with files, as previously.

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.

Updated Jetty 8 web server

FishEye 3.0 includes an upgrade from Jetty 6 to Jetty 8 as its web server and Java servlet container.

Change log

This section will contain information about the FishEye 3.0 minor releases as they become available. These releases will be free to all customers with active FishEye software maintenance.

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

The issues listed below are just the highlights of all those that have been resolved for the FishEye 3.0.x releases.
