Agilefant 1.6 -> 2.0 alpha

Totally renewed user interface

  • The interface has been streamlined and works similarly in every view
  • Performance and ease-of-use is now on a totally different level

Conceptual model has been fundamentally changed

  • Instead of a workaround on iteration level, the stories are now consistent throughout the whole system
  • The former tags have been changed to a more intuitive and easy-to-use labeling system
  • A work queue for tasks has been added to the Daily Work page

Hierarchical backlog management

  • Product level backlog has been replaced with a story tree
  • Project backlog is now a collection of all of its iterations’ stories
  • Hierarchy is allowed on project and product levels. Iteration stories can’t have children

Disabling unneeded views

  • The Timesheets, Daily Work, and Portfolio views can be disabled through the Settings page.

Browser support:

  • Firefox 3.0+ and Google Chrome are officially supported
  • Safari should work fine
  • IE8 is not guaranteed to work, but works to some standard
  • Opera probably works to some extent, but has not been tested
