Mingle Project Management Tool Updated

ThoughtWorks Studios has announced the availability of Version 3.1 of Mingle, its Agile project management software. New features in Mingle 3.1 focus on improved distributed team collaboration, reporting, and end-user productivity through a series of user-driven product enhancements.

Mingle is the project management component of ThoughtWorks' Adaptive ALM suite. Together with Twist (automated testing) and Cruise (continuous integration and release management), it comprises a fully integrated Agile ALM solution designed to support the hybrid nature of Agile processes while supporting both management and engineering practices.

New features in Mingle 3.1 include:

  • Improved Collaboration. New features to the "Murmurs" collaboration platform within Mingle extend the ability to capture unstructured information from card-specific comments up to the project level. In addition, new traceability features allow users to quickly track Murmurs back to originating cards, and global search capabilities provide project-based searches across all content compiled within Murmurs.
  • New Reporting Functions for better tracking and visibility at the card level, Mingle now includes new "THIS CARD" reporting. This helps users access the value of a card's properties for reporting and allows high-value reports to be created at a very detailed level.
  • A variety of new usability enhancements are included in Mingle 3.1. Based on input from end-users, these features provide added flexibility when customizing the user interface, allow for the add and delete of personal "favorites" of Mingle views, and offer improved history filtering and notification alerts based on multiple changes within the workflow.
