YouTrack Release Candidate Available

The time has come and we’re releasing YouTrack 1.0 Release Candidate today.

To sum things up, the RC build introduces a pack of new features, bug fixes, and usability improvements compared to YouTrack Beta, including:

  • OpenID support via 5 providers to log in with a single click.
  • Select All to modify more issues than you have in a single page.
  • Restructured permissions for clear administration.
  • “Verified” state for use by your quality assurance department.
  • Filter hints for better understanding or your current filter selection.
  • E-mail threading to prevent YouTrack notifications from flooding your inbox.
  • Merging related changes in e-mail notifications (and no more subscriptions to tags and saved searches that you haven’t ever touched!).
  • Direct links to comments and new issue form.
  • Release notes support (for example, see RC 2 release notes view for everything (except exceptions) that we’ve fixed since YouTrack Beta).
  • Collapsed view and “Show all” links for tags and saved searches.
  • Support for IE6+ via Google Chrome Frame.
  • New shortcuts for toggling issue list views (Ctrl+Alt+plus/minus), and getting back from full issue view to the issue list (Ctrl+Up).
  • Link to registration form from Admin Area | Users tab.
  • And so on!

Download YouTrack RC and try it out! Should the build contain serious bugs, please report them into our YouTrack instance.

    Congratulations on RC. I’ve been using YouTrack to file and search IDEA bugs, and I can say it is a pleasure to work with, and I don’t miss Jira at all. Great job for a 1.0 release! As a user the only showstopper bug I encountered (which still isn’t fixed) is “Limit text search by issue fields​/​comments”. It is still very hard to search for certain keywords in IDEA because you can’t limit the search to the summary line only.

    Thanks Alex!

    The feature you’re mentioning is scheduled for next version.
    I have voted for it, this is as much as I can do right now 🙁
