▼ Decoupling of Program, Product, and Project: projects are allowed to link products beyond their programs; the parent programs can be changed even with the products and projects linked with.


▼ Users are free to choose whether to enable the iteration feature according to the length of projects. With the multi iteration enabled, users manage tasks under the different iterations; with the multi iteration disabled, users manage tasks directly under the project.

▼ Under the scenario that users manage a customized project, there is no need to bind a product. So we add an option of "Non-product-based project" for users, which is convenient for them to manage stories and tasks under a certain project without creating any products.

▼ Under the scenario that users manage multi-products in a single stage in the waterfall projects, we add an option of "Create stages by product" for users. One set of stages can be edited according to the project itself, while multi-set of stages can be edited according to products.

▼ It is supported to create integrated builds under a project, which allows users to link multiple builds under the iteration.

▼ Code repository could be created directly under projects.

▼ Multiple builds could be linked to a single product release.

▼ In order to meet user's needs on managing code on the project level, we have added the item of selecting the related projects while creating or editing code repository.
