Hello everyone! ZenTao 16.0 is released. 16 series of ZenTao is a new starting point. Zen Tao has gone through many iterations and continuous optimization since 2019. It has changed from simply supporting Agile to supporting Scrum, Waterfall, Kanban, and other project management models, from a single research and development process management tool to a more complete project management platform.
ZenTao has added the Programme and Execution concept, increased support for the three project management models of Scrum, Waterfall, and Kanban, and provided end-to-end integrated DevOps solutions and automated test management solutions. At the same time, different ways of experience and new desktop clients have been added, you can click the message card and notification card to quickly jump to the corresponding page of ZenTao.
ZenTao will continue to work steadily and focus on users' experience in the future, we will continue to meet users' needs based on optimizing the existing features. We will produce more official plug-ins, course support services, and technical support services to respond to users' individual needs and deliver more professional project management solutions!
This release has upgraded the project management model and added a waterfall management model. Users can choose the management model according to actual needs, which enhances project management flexibility.
Optimized the execution of the Kanban function, users can manage requirements, tasks, and bugs separately through Kanban, which greatly enhances the visibility of the project management process.
Provided a brand new Desktop, through which users can communicate efficiently and access ZenTao conveniently.
Added the general-purpose Kanban function which is very flexible and can be highly customized. Daily affairs can be managed through General-purpose Kanban. It provides users with a unified team collaboration platform.
ZenTao API with the RESTful style has been added, which makes it easier to use. After upgrading to version 16, you can view the latest version of the ZenTao interface document in Doc-API Document.
