Gibraltar 2.5 New Feature Dive – Issue Tracking Integration

In our experience, automated error reporting beats user-reported errors 3 to 1! Many of these bugs slip past internal testing because they only show up under specific combinations of conditions – exactly the kind of bugs that drive you nuts and waste your time trying to reproduce them. Gibraltar provides contextual information about the conditions leading up to each error that slashes analysis time. Gibraltar integrates with issue tracking systems to provide intelligent error management.

Gibraltar 2.5 New Feature Dive – Email Notification

With Gibraltar 2.5 you can receive text or HTML-formatted messages when important events are reported. The messages are pretty and we’ve worked hard to make sure you won’t get flooded when something goes wrong in an app you monitor. They’re easy to configure and are generated automatically on the Server so no one need be logged in.

Gibraltar 2.5 – Integration, Notifications, Visual Studio 2010 and More

Defect tracking integration, email notifications, powerful extensibility API, and full Visual Studio 2010/.NET 4.0 support are just some of the new and enhanced features in Gibraltar 2.5. We’ve extended the scalability of Gibraltar in each dimension and improved the performance of Hub to make sure it can handle your toughest scenarios.


Reworking the Gibraltar AddIn API

When creating an API, plan on the first design not panning out, no matter how much you do. Based on feedback from the beta we’ve rehauled the way the Gibraltar Add In API works so you can create slick integration between Gibraltar and third party systems like defect tracking, data warehouses, and customer service platforms. We’ve taken care of the plumbing so you can focus on adding the cool.


Using Gibraltar, PostSharp and Visual Studio 2010

If you’re using Visual Studio 2010 and want to take advantage of the Gibraltar Agent for PostSharp, here’s what you need to do until the next release of Gibraltar which will have full support in the box.


Extensible UI: Usability challenges and solutions

Meeting the competing goals of discoverability, simplicity, and user experience progression is complicated. When a user interface has to support dynamic views the challenge is even greater. See how we adjusted part of Gibraltar to deliver on our commitment to great usability while creating new opportunities to extend it to make you look like a rock star.


Unpredictable Feature Coolness

Sometimes small feature changes complement each other to create a large change in the capability of your product. Don’t be afraid to experiment around the edges to see what you can uncover because you can’t always predict what’s going to be great ahead of time.
