JetBrains YouTrack 2.0 More Customizable yet Amazingly Easy To Use

Innovative bug and issue tracker becomes even more flexible and secure without sacrificing simplicity

May 26, 2010

Prague, Czech Republic, May 26, 2010 — JetBrains®, creators of intelligent, productivity-enhancing development tools, today announced the release of YouTrack 2.0, a more customizable version of its fast and innovative keyboard-centric bug and issue tracking system.

YouTrack offers fantastic time savings for both bug submitters and development teams. Its lightning-fast issue reporting is complemented with powerful native-language-like search queries and batch operations on multiple issues from the command window.

In its second major release, YouTrack 2.0 adds custom issue attributes to help development teams easily adapt the bug tracker to their specific needs, and to migrate existing projects from other issue trackers. Concerned about security, YouTrack also introduces flexible access control by letting users strengthen permissions for individual issues that contain non-public data, without limiting access to the whole project. All the while, YouTrack remains focused on being an intelligent and easy-to-use issue tracker, packing the majority of its functionality in just two controls — a search box and command window.

“Someone once said that a product is well designed when you use it without thinking about what makes it so good. That’s our goal in making YouTrack, too,” said Vadim Gurov, YouTrack Team Lead. “If you want to spend less time on reporting and processing bugs, YouTrack is probably for you. And with the latest security and customization enhancements, it not only improves your performance but also fully adapts to your team’s needs.”

With YouTrack 2.0, now you can:

  • Create and manage custom attributes, and adjust their visibility.
  • Perform batch operations programmatically with YouTrack REST API.
  • Tune visibility for individual issues that might contain non-public data.
  • Submit issues from any web page – without even opening YouTrack, via the Create Issue bookmarklet.
  • Find and filter issues faster, thanks to enhanced query-based search syntax, auto-completion and highlighting.
  • Utilize extended JetBrains TeamCity integration.
  • Import existing projects from Jira 4.1.
  • Handle issues more intuitively, in a redesigned user interface.
