This version brings the “Team availability” feature back, making a new step towards a final release. It works as before, including the recent addition of the useful Sprint Burndown Chart that compares the remaining time to the remaining availability.
Apart from that, this new beta also fixes a few bugs and improves the overall performance of the application.
A nifty addition is that you can now apply a story template (including features, tags, tasks and acceptance tests…) to stories imported from your bug tracker. For the record, story template allow prefilling stories with data taken from an existing story which serves as a model.
We took some time since the last release, partly because we also released a maintenance version of iceScrum R6 (R6#14.11) and we moved our main office to an awesome new location, you may hear more about it soon!
Here comes a new version of iceScrum and iceScrum Pro!
This version brings many changes, we hope that you will like them!
This post lists all the changes brought by iceScrum R6#14. It is updated when minor versions are released to fix bugs and add small improvements on top of this major version. Changes brought by such minor versions are identified by a label, e.g. R6#14.10. We recommend that you upgrade to the latest minor version, which is currently iceScrum R6#14.10.

As promised, we try to push the pace of releases. After making the beta more robust, it’s time to bring big features to get closer to the general availability. Our next sprint is dedicated to porting and improving the SCM integration (Git, SVN, Jenkins…) feature! Stay tuned!
Here comes a third version of iceScrum 7 beta: 7.0.0-beta.3. Unlike previous versions, this one doesn’t bring much visible changes. However, we worked a lot under the hood to provide more consistency and stability. Here are the main improvements and bug fixes:
Big overhaul of error management
New order in story and task details view to better follow the workflow
Better defaults for post-it size in Planning and Task board views
Task name is too short in details view when the task is done
“Context” search by tag / feature doesn’t work properly in Task Board
First, we would like to thank our early users for their encouraging and insightful feedback! We are glad to see that you like this new version and we will do our best to make it even better thanks to your comments.
A sample project is automatically created for you and you can play with as you want. This version is free and unlimited and it will not affect your existing subscriptions in any way. Thus, you can also freely create new projects. Just keep in mind that we may not be able to keep your data as this is still an early stage of the Beta.
We will try to keep a good pace by releasing new versions often and keeping you updated through blog posts such as this one.
This new version is the occasion to adopt a clear and broadly use version number pattern, inspired by Semantic Versionning. It should help keep up with version updates.
