GreenHopper 4.2.1 is now available, a little ahead of schedule in fact. We wanted to get a few neat improvements completed so you have something to put under your Christmas tree!
Add Version
We have introduced the ability to add a version from the Planning Board, meaning you no longer have to head to Manage Versions in Jira. It is a small step but one that we feel will benefit a number of customers.

Issue Counts
We are improving support for kanban within GreenHopper by introducing an Issue Count statistic. This will provide a count of issues, excluding sub-tasks, so that you can add column constraints on your Task Board and limit the work in progress. You can also create a marker for the statistic on your Planning Board to assist you in pulling cards onto your kanban backlog.

Agile Gadget in Confluence
With the release of Confluence 3.1 we wanted to ensure that it was possible to get your burndown charts on your project page. We have given the gadget an oil change and it is ready to go!
