We deliver updates and improvements to YouTrack on a continuous basis. Here's an overview of the changes that are available in this version.
The issue activity stream now shows additional information for pull/merge requests, including the title, description, and current status. This information lets you monitor changes in an integrated version control system alongside regular commit activity.
|Time Tracking Report Widgets|
This new widget helps you track how much time you and your team spend working on issues in one or more YouTrack projects. You can choose to show this information as a time report or in the timesheet report format.
Updates and Enhancements
|Resolved Issue Filter|
A new option in the search box lets you hide resolved issues in search results with one click.
A new option for authentication modules that connect to an external directory service lets you synchronize group memberships and profile data on a set schedule. This option is supported for LDAP, Open LDAP, and Active Directory.
|Workflow Support for VCS Changes|
We've extended the workflow API to include VCS change events. This means that you can write workflows that process issues whenever YouTrack retrieves commits and pull requests from a connected repository.
|Methods for Checking Current and Previous Values in Workflows|
|Attaching Files to Comments Without Text|
We've made it possible to attach files to comments without adding any comment text. This lets you share files that require no explanation without having to stop and enter a message.
|Sort by Comment Count|
A new attribute lets you sort search results based on the number of comments in each issue.
|Custom Image Dimensions|
An extension to our Markdown implementation lets you specify custom height and width attributes for images and other embedded content. This functionality is supported in both issues and articles.
|Syntax Highlights in Articles|
When you use WYSIWYG mode for drafting article content, the editor automatically detects and applies syntax highlights to blocks of code. This helps to improve the readability and context of the code block.
|Old YouTrack REST API|
We have provided documentation for all of the public endpoints in our new YouTrack REST API. The old REST API is officially deprecated. We will discontinue support for the old REST API later this year.
If you have an existing application or integration that uses the old API, we encourage you to migrate your applications to the new API. The new OpenAPI Specification (OAS) is a great tool to help you get started. If you have any questions or require additional support, join our YouTrack Community in Slack.
