You can enable experimental features for your InCloud instance or Standalone installation. These features are in early or intermediate stages of development. This strategy lets us get feedback for a feature as we work on it, learning more about what you want to see in the final product.
If you are an administrator, simply enable the features you want to try on the Feature Configuration page. This page shows the features that you can enable system-wide and other features that you can enable for specific groups.
We have added Markdown Support as a new experimental feature. With this feature enabled, you can format text in issue descriptions, comments, and work items with Markdown syntax. You can toggle between Markdown and Wiki to choose the format you’re most comfortable with.
Issue History in Activity Stream
Activity stream replaces the tab interface in issue views for comments, history, linked issues, similar issues, time tracking, and VCS changes. These components are merged into a single stream that you can filter to display specific types of activities. In the current version, you can view issue history, comments, and work items in a single, chronological list. Select which content to display by default from the Activities drop-down list and filter the stream for different types of activity with the icons at the top right.
As a part of experimental features we have added a possibility to add custom widgets for the dashboards. You can create a widget in any IDE and load it for testing on the widgets playground page with only few clicks. After the widget is ready, you can upload it and add it to your dashboard. This feature lets you Extend the functionality of your dashboards to grab content from external sources or present data from YouTrack in a unique format.
