JetBrains Releases Bug and Issue Tracking Beta



JetBrains has released YouTrack 1.0 Beta, a new bug and issue tracking system.

"As developers and users of our own products, we'd grown unhappy with how long it took to report and process bugs with existing issue-tracking systems," said Vadim Gurov, YouTrack Team Lead. "We set out to change that, and ended up with a fast, intuitive tool that's friendly to both developers and casual bug reporters. YouTrack packs the majority of its issue-handling functionality in just two controls -- a search box and a command window. It really couldn't be any simpler!"

YouTrack offers the following features:

  • Bug reporting with a single shortcut from anywhere within the product.
  • Query-based search with auto-completion and highlighting.
  • Intuitive commands to quickly execute batch operations on selected issues.
  • Natural-language-like query and command syntax.
  • Extensive keyboard support for creating, editing, and navigating between issues easily.
  • AJAX-based UI for fast issue handling.

YouTrack is the first mature product developed using JetBrains Meta Programming System (MPS). Moreover, JetBrains has been successfully using YouTrack with its own development projects, resulting in significant time savings and enhanced user enthusiasm.
