January 30, 2020 - The GForge Group announced a new version of their collaboration software tool.
The GForge “Dark Night” includes features that are intended to make the collaboration software easier to use. Dark Night also adds power features, which together will work to make project collaboration more efficient.
Service Desk- Project’s can now manage their own groups - allowing users to use the GForge ticketing system as a service desk solution. GForge customers who already use GForge for managing projects will be able to leverage GForge to manage support tickets as well.
Analytics- Users can now create arbitrary reports so they have better visibility within or across projects. GForge administrators now have a "Summary" report giving them insights into the users and projects within GForge.
Release tracking and management- Once a release is completed and is ready to publish, the project lead can now import the release notes (until now, this was a manual process).
Dark Mode- Users may now change GForge to use Dark Mode. For users using GMail or Twitter, this feature works the same way.
In addition, the new GForge Dark Night release includes a handful of other improvements that were requested by users. These include:
- Menu– We have improved how users can navigate within the system. We have added more options and possible paths.
- Document Management- GForge’s document management system now allows users to tag documents for improved organization and searching. Users can now easily also restore a document to a prior version. Also, clicking on videos or images will now preview the image or video inside the project before a user decides whether or not to download the file.
- Bug Fixes- A number of bug fixes which will be enumerated on the official 19.2 Release Notes (GForge “Dark Night”).
