Agile Dashboard / Scrum goes Burning Parrot

Demo of new planning view

Big step forward in the Tuleap UX with the upgrade of “Overview” and “Planning” views to Burning Parrot.

On Overview, both graphs are now rendered with D3js so they get the same look and feel.

In addition to a fresher look, homogeneous with dashboards and project administration, we made a lot of small usability changes to make your life easier: direct access to parent from cards, more consistent cards between expanded / condensed views, milestone info “scrolls” when content is huge.

It’s also possible to create backlog parents (eg. epics for user stories) directly from the backlog planning view

Project administration

Tuleap has a very large number of permissions and they goes very fine grained. Until now it was a bit tedious to see exact permissions that were set to each groups. With 9.18, you now get a single screen with all permissions granted across your project.

Trackers

  • story #10325: search in artifact comments from classic view

The feature was already there for TQL users since a couple of months. It’s now accessible in classic search as well.

Cross tracker search (Tuleap Enterprise only)

3 new pseudo-fields are now accessible in Cross tracker search TQL: @status, @last_update_date and @submitted_on.

It means that you can for instance gather all the open tickets in all your support trackers of your platform that got an update last week with a query like @status = OPEN() AND @last_update_date >= NOW() - 1w

Development

PHP 5.6 is there, it’s now time to think to PHP 7. While the switch to PHP 5.6 was mostly an architecture change due to the introduction of nginx & fpm PHP7 will require mostly work on internal to get rid of a bunch of legacy and deprecation.

We already have a Continous Integration job that help us to identify were are the incompatibilities. But there are 2 big underlying changes we need to start with. First, change our database access layer (ext_mysql being removed from PHP7). This will be done via and upgrade to PDO and EasyDB. Then, work around our unit test framework (SimpleTest) limitation with PHP7. Our current version is not compatible and the latest versions of the framework that are compatible broke Mock usage. While we are working to get rid of this dependency all new unit tests must be written with phpunit
