Innovative Bug and Issue Tracker Becomes Even More Flexible and Secure Without Sacrificing Simplicity

PRAGUE, Czech Republic, May 27, 2010 - JetBrains(R), creators of intelligent, productivity-enhancing development
tools, today announced the release of YouTrack 2.0, a more customizable
version of its fast and innovative keyboard-centric bug and issue tracking

YouTrack offers fantastic time savings for both bug submitters and
development teams. Its lightning-fast issue reporting is complemented with
powerful native-language-like search queries and batch operations on multiple
issues from the command window.

In its second major release, YouTrack 2.0 adds custom issue attributes to
help development teams easily adapt the bug tracker to their specific needs,
and to migrate existing projects from other issue trackers. Concerned about
security, YouTrack also introduces flexible access control by letting users
strengthen permissions for individual issues that contain non-public data,
without limiting access to the whole project. All the while, YouTrack remains
focused on being an intelligent and easy-to-use issue tracker, packing the
majority of its functionality in just two controls - a search box and command

"Someone once said that a product is well designed when you use it
without thinking about what makes it so good. That's our goal in making
YouTrack, too," said Vadim Gurov, YouTrack Team Lead. "If you want to spend
less time on reporting and processing bugs, YouTrack is probably for you. And
with the latest security and customization enhancements, it not only improves
your performance but also fully adapts to your team's needs."

With YouTrack 2.0, now you can:

    - Create and manage custom attributes, and adjust their
    - Perform batch operations programmatically with YouTrack REST API.
    - Tune visibility for individual issues that might contain
      non-public data.
    - Submit issues from any web page - without even opening YouTrack,
      via the Create Issue bookmarklet.
    - Find and filter issues faster, thanks to enhanced query-based
      search syntax, auto-completion and highlighting.
    - Utilize extended JetBrains TeamCity integration.
    - Import existing projects from Jira 4.1.
    - Handle issues more intuitively, in a redesigned user interface.
