ATLANTA, Jan. 22 /PRNewswire/ — VersionOne, the number one Agile project planning & management tool provider, announced a major upgrade to its award winning V1: Agile product suite. Headlining the upgrades is a simpler, more intuitive user interface. The new interface focuses on simplifying the overall user experience, making it easier to learn and use the application, while providing "1 click" access to key Agile process functionality. Other major enhancements in Release 8 include the industry's first Intelligent Release Forecaster tool and a set of free open source tool integrations building on VersionOne's strategy of plug-n-play integration into existing environments.

"We are always seeking ways to help our customers simplify the delivery of software. Our new interface ensures simplicity of use for all users — from the developer who only wants to see his or her work to the 'power user' needing to leverage the broadest array of functionality," said Robert Holler, Chief Executive Officer. "All key functionality is one click away, making the application much easier and more effective to use than a bunch of spreadsheets," said Holler.

VersionOne's unique Intelligent Release Forecaster tool enables teams to do "what if" analysis as part of the ongoing planning process. A project manager is able to input key parameters of the project, such as velocity, to accurately forecast the release delivery date with confidence. This is especially important to project managers in enterprise organizations demanding ongoing status and forecasting of delivery schedules.

Release 8 includes a set of free software integrations building on VersionOne's strategy of providing simple to use, plug-n-play integrations. The integrations include data sharing and updates with the leading development tools JIRA, Bugzilla and HP Mercury's Quicktest Pro. Also included is an integration with Eclipse, the most widely used open source integrated development environment (IDE). This integration allows developers working in Eclipse to view and update their work without ever leaving the IDE.

VersionOne provides all integrations as open source software via the VersionOne community site. Interested customers and partners can download the source code to further customize integrations for their unique environment. Also available are existing integrations with tools such as Visual Studio, Subversion and FitNesse. Unlike other Agile tool providers there are no hidden charges for use of the integrations, providing a much lower total cost of ownership of a VersionOne solution.

VersionOne's family of Agile project planning & management products: V1: Agile Community, V1: Agile Team and V1: Agile Enterprise include all features delivered in Release 8 which is available Tuesday, January 22.
