Keeping Things Fast
FishEye continues core performance improvements with the addition of a new REST endpoint that gives your hard-working servers a little relief.
Instead of polling repositories once a minute, you can now trigger re-indexing only when something in your repo has actually changed. Slash server load and makes every operation faster, especially for larger teams: page loads, reviews and reports.
All Your Code Are Belongs to JIRA
Associating all your JIRA and FishEye instances and projects is easier than ever. Connect them using Application Links, and that's it. No need to map individual projects. Or install plugins. Or subscribe to gadgets. With just the application link, you'll see commit and review info inside issues, jump from issue to commit to review with a single click, and enjoy all the other benefits of integrated development tools.
Simply Integrate With Bitbucket and GitHub
For those of you connecting FishEye and Crucible to cloud-dwelling repositories on Bitbucket and Github we added support for triggering indexes. Just provide the details of your repository and FishEye will be pinged whenever new commits need to be indexed.
There are loads of things that can get in the way of your team’s productivity – but configuring your development tools shouldn’t be one of them. Administrators are routinely looking for ways to save time, cut down on common requests and get their development teams up and running quickly. The FishEye and Crucible team has delivered a set of new features to make system administrators’ lives a whole lot easier by simplifying the integration between FishEye, Crucible and JIRA.
- Save time: teams with large repositories and projects no longer need to create and maintain multiple links between projects in JIRA and repositories in FishEye, this is now done automatically.
- Cut down on common requests: never get another request to connect a FishEye or Crucible project to a JIRA project. Your JIRA instance now gets data from all projects existing on your FishEye and Crucible server automatically – no mapping required.
Continuing our focus on performance, this release delivers improvements to strip off seconds for several common operations between JIRA, FishEye and Crucible – specifically the Source and Review Tabs. Large instances with multiple repositories, each with many changesets will get relevant information up to 10x faster when viewing the Source and Review tabs in JIRA. Check out the difference from data tested on a load testing instance of FishEye and Crucible with multiple repositories and changesets.
Focus on Performance
We started with the concept of improving page load times as the area where we can create the biggest customer benefits around performance. While the improved page load times ripple out across the product, we saw the biggest gains with Activity Streams. Activity Stream page load times have improved by up to 50 times. Check out the difference from data tested on a load testing instance of FishEye and Crucible.
Did we stop at Activity Streams? Nope. The FishEye and Crucible Performance Team made improvements to load times of other key pages, including the Projects list (that one’s for you, Enterprise users!).Learn more about FishEye's focus on performance
Easily bring members of your team into a code discussion by @mentioning them in a review or changeset comment. Just type “@” + their name as part of your comment and they will receive a notification that they have been mentioned. From there, the conversation can take place in Crucible or changeset comments where it’s available to everyone, instead of being hidden in your email. Pull them into the conversation – your code will benefit from it!Why @mention? Learn more...
Share Code with your Team
Software development is not just about coding. It’s a network of developers collaborating on a common project. When collaborating, it is important to get information to members of your team (and outside your team) fast. Every aspect of FishEye and Crucible is easy to share between team mates because everything is just a URL away. All it takes to share any artifact with your team is switching over to your email or IM applications to share information.
FishEye 2.8 makes the sharing of information super-quick. With the new Share Button you can instantly share repositories, commits, files and diffs with members of your team or users new to FishEye. That means no switching between applications! Click Share, specify the users you’d like to notify by username or email address, provide a quick message for context and FishEye will keep your team up-to-date.
Subversion 1.7 Support
Satisfying a highly voted feature request, we now fully support Subversion 1.7, making FishEye and Crucible more compatible with your Subversion environments.
