Tasktop 2.0 with Agile Planner
Version 2.0 of Tasktop has been released. Tasktop 2.0 comes with the Agile Planner that was launched in beta at the Agile 2010 conference. The Agile Planner adds functionality for displaying plans across repositories with support for cross-repository dependencies. The Planner supports developer centric workflows, and leverages Tasktop’s automatic time tracking. Agile plans can currently be displayed from HP’s Agile Accelerator and Rally, with more tools to be supported in subsequent releases. In the 2.0 release, Task Federation can be deployed to further unify an ALM stack, as Tasktop bi-directionally synchronises all the key tasks and fields between IBMs Rational Team Concert and HP’s Quality Centre. Additional Tasktop Certified connectors will be supported in subsequent releases. More information is available at the New and Noteworthy.
