New Views with full inline edit are on the way. In TargetProcess v.2.23 (to be released in January) the Inner Lists will be really powerful. It will be possible to inline edit content in lists, use drag and drop to prioritize entities, and run any actions in lists.
As we collect feedback, we’re also working to fine-tune the Views. For example, the related entities part has been improved a lot (navigation, re-ordering and changing states).
TargetProcess v.2.22 released and available for community edition customers already. It will go public in several days (we hope).
This release has remarkable changes in TargetProcess infrastructure. We completely re-wrote Plugins architecture and released new Plugins SDK. New Plugins based on a loosely-coupled architecture powered by NServiceBus framework. It is much easier to write a new plugins now and they are scalable. REST API is quite powerful with v.2.22 release as well, you can get, create, update and delete entities. Mashups enable changes in TargetProcess UI. As you see, this release is focused on new integration abilities of TargetProcess mainly.
New Views are really cool! You can inline edit everything. We thought out them with passion and crafted every little detail. Views are not complete yet, we are working on History, some Actions and some tabs UI. Anyway, this is a beta release and we would love to hear your feedback.
New POP Email Integration Plugin
Now inbound email integration comes as a standalone plugin which you can modify and extend.
With this plugin, inbound email integration setup is fast and easy. Now you can use one mailbox for several projects. See a detailed overview of the new Email Plugin in TargetProcess blog
New Subversion Integration Plugin
Now profiles are not tied to projects, and mapping users is a much easier with the new UI. If you use one repository path for several projects, there’s no need to create multiple profiles. All revisions will bind to each entity as per comments for these revisions.
New Test Run Import Plugin: NUnit, JUnit, Selenium
NUnit, JUnit, Selenium plugins are merged into a single plugin. The overall plugin configuration is made simpler, and you can easily check how Test Cases and Unit Tests map to each other.
New Beta Views
Feature, Task and Test Plan Run views appear in this version.
They’re now available not only from Kanban and Teams Board but also from Release Plan, Iterations Plan and Assign People (‘view info’ icon), Prioritize screen and Task Board (double click).
REST CRUD API
REST CRUD API allows to create, update and delete any entity in TargetProcess. You can create new User Stories, Time, Tasks, Projects and even Processes Check REST CRUD API on TargetProcess development site for more details

New beta User Story and Bug views are available in Kanban and Teams Board on double click. Go to Kanban Board and double click on any User Story or Bug.
Add tag, update name, description, effort or change release, iteration? It’s fast and easy now. From just a single view you can update all the fields.
Avatars are used in comments and assignments. It’s a nice way to recognize people fast and there’s no need to read names.
Assign people quickly. Find a person in a team using quick search and avatars.
You can even edit custom fields!
It’s possible to attach multiple attachments at once now. Moreover, you can just drop a file into a browser window as a popup view is open and the attachment will be added automatically.
As this is a beta version, not all actions are available so far. To convert/move entities, add time or attach user stories or bugs to request, use the old view and edit. In beta version ‘Old View’ and ‘Old Edit’ links are put under ‘Actions’ list.
As we continue working on the views, you’re welcome to have your say and send feedback.
We added a system settings check at the end of installation process, so errors are identified quickly now.
