Recently I’ve discovered Steve Eichert’s post about one-week iterations in theirs project. Honestly, as I read through, I felt something wrong about their process, at least it was my perception of provided information. I really wonder about QA. They fix bugs 0.5 day, I can imagine that it is possible, but how about testing and verification?
From now we are going to push new releases every other week (yep, we are doing 2 weeks iterations). Yesterday we have released second public preview of TP 2.0 (agile project management software). You may check it at http://www.targetprocess.com/try.aspx
Your feedback is greatly appreciated!
This release includes the following features:
Latest Activities Control
Release Planning With User Stories
Planning and TimeTracking Tuning
Some features planned for latest iteration have not been implemented.
User Stories Drag And Drop Prioritization and Drag&Drop Performance Tuning
The main idea behind D&D performance improvement is re-write D&D, get rid of update panels and move all actions on UI. With current implementation D&D works not very good in IE with more than 100 entities (there is no such problem in FireFox though). New implementation will be really fast, prototype proved that.
In general, we expect that first General Availability release will be made in the middle of November. We still need three iterations to complete important functionality and make first release comparable with TP 1.7.
