Agile Project Management tools

The new Agile Dashboard is a powerful working environment where agile teams, beginner or mature, can collect and prioritize needs (backlog creation), manage epics and user stories, plan sprints and releases and monitor daily task progress (cardwall, burndown).

How you can use it?

To facilitate the configuration of the agile dashboard, Tuleap 6.0 provides you with an .XML template. It includes the pre-configured trackers required for releases, user stories, epics, tasks. You only have to create your own artifacts, estimate efforts and go ahead !

To import the Agile Dashboard template via the command line, follow the installation guidelines available here.
Documentation also gives you details about how using the agile dashboard and creating one from scratch if you want to better understand how it works.


Integration with Gerrit

In addition to Git and Hudson/Jenkins already compatible with Tuleap, this new release provides the integration with the Gerrit code review tool.

Tuleap makes using Gerrit easy: one-click project creation, automatic data replication and user group synchronisation. While maintaining all the power of Gerrit, Tuleap offers a fast and seamless alternative for setting-up code review on your projects. .

Plugin Eclipse Mylyn-Tuleap

Thanks to the new Mylyn/Tuleap connector, developers can stay focused on their on-going tasks: from their Eclipse working environment, they can now read, update, create and remove artifacts (tasks, bugs, support requests…) created in the Tuleap tracking system.

Developed in collaboration with our partner Obeo, this plugin aims to be officially distributed by Eclipse.

MediaWiki Integration

In addition to the php wiki system already provided in Tuleap, Mediawiki, the system used by Wikipedia, has been integrated to Tuleap.

How you can use it now?

REQUIREMENT: First, you have to check your Tuleap is installed with php 5.3.

When updating your Tuleap, you have to install and activate the new plugin called “tuleap-plugin-mediawiki”. See instructions to upgrade your Tuleap. If you install Tuleap for the first time, the same process needs to be carried out.
Once installed, it will be available for all your projects. Just as for the other plugins, the project manager will be able to activate mediawiki in the administration workspace.


Debian server compatibility (alpha)

Since the usage of Debian is fast growing and has exceeded CentOS, the Tuleap team has worked with Raphael Hertzog, major contributor of Debian, to offer an installation of Tuleap on Debian 7 server. Making a tool compatible with a new operating system is a big job and requires lots of tests. Tuleap 6. 0 provides a first step towards Debian 7 compatibility. Further developments will have to be made to ensure a stable and seamless solution.
