YouTrack 6.5 Release Candidate Is Out

We are happy to announce that YouTrack 6.5 Release Candidate is out! We’re just one step away from the final release, so it’s just the time to check what’s coming in the v.6.5.

So what’s in there?

Integration with Bitbucket and GitLab that allows you to:

  1. Apply any command to your issues from commit comment.
  2. Use commit hashes in YouTrack’s issues directly linked to the commits.
  3. See your commits on a separate tab called VCS changes.
  4. Filter the issues containing VCS changes using a search query:has {vcs changes}.


One-click Jira import

Import your Jira projects with the whole history, comments, attachments, reporters, custom fields, watchers and voters, and work items. Simply provide the link to your Jira, login and password and that’s it! Jira 5+ is supported.

Redesigned Administration UI

Please welcome a redesigned Administration part. We’ve completely reworked the way you configure your projects, custom fields, notifications, workflows. We are sure that a new look and feel will optimize your configuration process.Administration_VCS+integration

Project Wizard

We dramatically simplified the process of creating a new project. Now you only need to fill in two fields. YouTrack automatically creates a Project Team user group with a Developer role for a new project. So you need to invite your team members or add users/groups to your new project to get started.

We’ve also changed the way you edit your projects:
