JetBrains Releases YouTrack 1.0 — Brand New Bug’n’ Issue Tracker

Bug and issue tracking receives an innovative, time-saving solution developed by acclaimed productivity experts

October 29, 2009

Prague, Czech Republic, October 29, 2009 — JetBrains®, creators of intelligent, productivity-enhancing development tools, today announced the release of YouTrack 1.0, the company’s brand new bug and issue tracking system. Following the success of TeamCity continuous integration and build management server, JetBrains continues to penetrate teamwork solutions market with top-class offers.

Modern issue tracking tools are known to be rather time-consuming. Dissatisfied with how much time working with them generally takes, the company designed YouTrack — a web-based, keyboard-centric issue tracker. JetBrains’ own development teams as well as other early adopters are now able to process bugs and requests faster and easier than ever before.

“We at JetBrains use issue tracking tools extensively to respond to user feedback and assure product quality. However, over the years we found existing tools just not up to par in terms of fast bug reporting, search and modification,” said JetBrains CEO Sergey Dmitriev. “Finally, we came up with a solution that suits our needs perfectly, and is user-friendly to both developers and casual bug reporters. To solve the majority of issue-handling tasks, YouTrack provides two keyboard-driven controls — a search box and a command window. To us as developers, that makes life a lot easier!”

YouTrack offers the following key features:

  • Bug reporting with a single shortcut from anywhere within YouTrack.
  • Query-based search with auto-completion and highlighting.
  • Intuitive commands to quickly execute batch operations on selected issues.
  • Natural-language-like query and command syntax.
  • Extensive keyboard support for creating, editing, and navigating between issues easily.
  • AJAX-based user interface for extremely fast issue handling.
  • Importing existing projects from JIRA 3.x.
  • Integration with external tools, including LDAP, OpenID, and JetBrains TeamCity.

YouTrack is the first mature product developed using JetBrains Meta Programming System (MPS). Moreover, JetBrains has been successfully using YouTrack with its own development projects, resulting in significant time savings and enhanced user enthusiasm.

YouTrack 1.0 is available in two editions:

  • Professional Edition: Ideal for small to medium teams; limited to 10 projects and 20 user accounts, and doesn’t support LDAP authentication; priced at $300.
  • Enterprise Edition: Everything a large team needs; full functionality for any number of projects and users; priced at $1,200.

Both editions come with 1 year of free technical support and upgrades.

JetBrains is running a promotion until the end of 2009: either edition of YouTrack 1.0 sells at 50% off.
