Reply to Comments with @ Mentions


Last month, we made it so that clicking on a story comment notification (either in the app or in email) took you directly to the comment in which you’d been mentioned. “That’s great and all,” we hear you saying, “but replying to that comment can be a bit painful when you’re trying to keep everyone already @ mentioned in the conversation.” Fair point!

Help is Here!


We’ve always focused the bulk of our attention on making Tracker a straightforward—yet powerful—tool to help you deliver fine software.

In other words, there are plentiful trees, but no forest. With our new Analytics beta, we’re ready to introduce the forest to the trees. This effort has largely been driven by your feedback, and our continuous desire to improve the Tracker experience for our customers, and it’s now ready for a test drive. Read more...

Performance Improvements, New Features, and a Peek at the Road Ahead


If you’re among the folks who have been wondering whether we’ve been trapped under a rock or lost the source code to Tracker, fear not! We are alive and well, and our coding fingers are in fine shape. Many of our efforts over the last few months have been focused on making Tracker rock-solid stable and secure, as well as iterating on brand-new features to improve the overall experience. But it’s one thing for us to say “We’ve been busy!” and hope you take our word for it; we thought it would be more useful to outline what we’ve been working on. Read more...
