Today is a big day for the Eclipse community with the release of “Galileo“, also known as Eclipse 3.5.
jira.pngAtlassian is joining the fun with the latest version of our Atlassian Connector for Eclipse.
This Eclipse plugin allows developers to quickly access Jira issues, Bamboo builds, Crucible code reviews and Fisheye SCM insights without context-switching from the IDE. The Atlassian Connector supports the newly-released Eclipse 3.5 (Galileo) as well as earlier 3.3 and 3.4 versions.
The latest release of the Atlassian Connector for Eclipse was created in partnership with Tasktop Technologies, creators of the widely adopted task-focused Mylyn interface for Eclipse. Developers working on Jira issues and Crucible code reviews are far more productive thanks to Mylyn’s innovative context-based presentation which shows them only the source code files and information needed for the task at hand.
The Atlassian Connector for Eclipse bamboo.pngallows developers to easily and efficiently:

  • Configure Jira, Bamboo, Crucible and Fisheye servers as Mylyn task repositories
  • Receive notifications of changes to Jira issues, Crucible code reviews, and Bamboo build status directly in Eclipse, eliminating context switches
  • Create, update, and manage Jira issues throughout their life cycle.
  • Launch Bamboo builds and create Jira issues to address failed Bamboo builds
  • Create and conduct Crucible code reviews right in the source code editor
  • Access Fisheye SCM insights at the project, package, file, or line of code level
