TargetProcess v.2.22: New Email, Subversion, Test Import and REST CRUD | Targetprocess - Visual management software

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 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.
