Fork synchronization with Stash 2.6

Today we're pleased to announce Stash 2.6, which introduces automated fork synchronization and audit logging. We've also added a repository search and polished some existing features.

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

The Stash 2.6 changelog is at the bottom of this page.

Fork synchronization

Fork syncing provides a way for your fork in Stash to be kept up-to-date with changes in the upstream repository, thus minimising the effort needed to do this manually. Stash can do this automatically, as long as you haven't modified the branches or tags in the fork.

If you have modified branches or tags in the fork, Stash will offer merge options:

Audit logging

Stash now provides full audit logging. The most important audit events for each repository and project are displayed in Stash on the Settings tab (these are only visible to Stash admins and system admins):

Stash also creates full audit log files that can be found in the <Stash home directory>/log/audit directory. The level of logging can be configured via system properties. Note that we recommend an automated backup of log files. 

Read more about audit logging in Stash. Plugin developers can specify that their plugin events should be added to the 'Audit log' view, and the full audit log file.

Repository Quicksearch

Quicksearch makes it easy to jump to a particular repository, without needing to know the name of the project it's in. Start typing to see a list of suggested repositories. If you type a '/', text before that is matched against project names, and text after is matched against repository names. Note that wildcards and antglobs are not supported.

Small improvements

Application navigator

The new application navigator, on the left of the header, allows you to switch to your other applications, such as Atlassian JIRA and Bamboo – or any other web application – all from the Stash header:

Stash administrators can configure which apps appear in the navigator – just click Configure in the application navigator, or go to the Stash admin area and click Application navigator. See Configuring the application navigator.

List of public repositories

Stash now displays a list of repositories for which anonymous access has been enabled – anonymous and logged-in users can choose RepositoriesView all public repositoriesSee Allowing public access to code.

Deprecation of Java 6

In version 3.0, Stash will no longer support Java 6.0, and will only support Java 7.0 and above. Stash 3.0 is expected to be released later in 2013. See Supported platforms.

Deprecation of Internet Explorer 8

In version 3.0, Stash will no longer support Internet Explorer 8, and will only support Internet Explorer 9 and above. Stash 3.0 is expected to be released later in 2013. See Supported platforms.
