FishEye and Crucible 4.0 were recently released with a host of new upgrades, including:

  • Improved User Directories Management –Embedded Crowd significantly enhances remote user source handling, making management consistent with other Atlassian products such as Jira and Confluence. Users are free to define and configure any number of user directories.
  • Global Permissions – A new global permissions mechanism enables you to assign any group one or both permissions, effectively granting all group members access to FishEye or Crucible.
  • Blame Rendering Changes – Blame information is hidden by default to reduce page load time. Blames are shown by hitting the Blame button, which allows you to see who last modified a line of code and in which revision.

Like many people this time of year, Isos has been in the midst of a productive, well-packed travel and event schedule. For most companies, those travel times can create some additional stress with loss of productivity and lack of insight into what your team’s progress is on key projects. The good news is that Atlassian has several tools we’ve implemented for our clients – tools we rely on ourselves – that help you be productive and engaged from wherever you find yourself… on land, sea or air.

If you are interested in learning more about how these productivity tools can benefit your organization, give me a call or drop me an email. I look forward to hearing from you soon!
