News: Worklog Assistant 1.0.1021: I'm not in beta any more

  1. Hi everyone, Easy, automated and accurate time tracking for JIRA is now out of beta. This release features better Ubuntu support in addition to fixes/enhancements reported or suggested by beta testers. I invite you to view the screenshots and give it a run: Screenshots : http://worklogassistant.com/screenshots.html 30-day trial: http://worklogassistant.com/download.html A release announcement is available on the blog: http://blog.worklogassistant.com/2009/01/out-of-beta-and-announcing-perpetual.html Thanks for your time and happy time tracking! -- Sohail Somani Hassle-free time tracking for JIRA Website: http://worklogassistant.com Blog : http://blog.worklogassistant.com Twitter: http://twitter.com/somanisoftware
  2. Much of the functionality is already delivered by the free Atlassian IDE Connector [http://www.atlassian.com/software/ideconnector/] as integral plugin for the IDEA IntelliJ IDE. You can easily define filters, start/stop progress on worktask, copy comment issues for your VCS commits as reference, etc. Nevertheless the Worklog Assistant may be worth a look esp. for everybody sticked more to Eclipse or a development-less usage of JIRA.

    Indeed, there are many good connectors for various IDEs. Personally, I could not appreciate an IDE-specific solution because even within a development organization, there are more than just developers who need to track time (think QA for example.) In consultancies, I am acutely aware of the proliferation of $MY_FAVOURITE_IDE which is another reason why I decided to be independent of any IDE. Additionally, Worklog Assistant is very resource friendly, which is hardly a requirement but a very big plus, especially when I start up Visual Studio these days :-) In an upcoming release, Worklog Assistant will be made more friendly for large deployments so that is another reason to prefer it if you work at a large company and need to use time tracking in JIRA. I feel that the IDE connectors work really well for some people and not so well for others, so to each his/her own! Thanks for your comment.
