Who remembers Paul the octopus?
The Football World Cup is coming up in November in Qatar. We are sure that some of you remember Paul the octopus, who predicted the winner of the matches and the finalist during the 2010 World Cup. Can predictability become a reality? One of our main drivers is to offer full insight into the development process. With Octo, we have set the first steps to present your development process in a graphical way. The Octo Kanban pipeline will help you to improve the predictability of all steps of your development process.
Have a look at the new features of Milestone V15.0.1
Gravity/New and Noteworthy/V8MS1
Failure to create a ticket from the email
Emails were being received with an incorrect location, this was not a Gravity problem but- something external, the Gravity error message has been updated to reflect this.
Xref Gitbucket checkout from IBMi fails
When using the IBMi as the Xref server the checkout of a git repository was failing, this has been fixed with the upgrade of the scm framework.
Xref cannot clone the bitbucket repo, authentication failure
Bitbucket cloud no longer allows the use of passwords, Xref documentation has been updated with a 'how to' on configuring an Xref location for Bitbucket cloud.
Xref search fails with a 'failed to get scm location' error message.
This could happen after a rename of a location, a search will no longer fail in this situation.

Add support for SEU source colors
We have added support for retaining the control characters that control the coloring of source lines in 5250 editors. The new behavior must be switched on in the MiWorkplace Preferences.

New and Noteworthy in TD/OMS V15 Milestone 1
Service Program Warnings
When a service program is promoted but not all its modules are in the same environment, we show a warning.
This warning does not match modern development practices and has been removed. From now on, a service program can be cycled with or without all modules without showing this warning.
In addition, the Service Program Level Check can be disabled. This did not actually do a level check and has been deprecated by a new rule Possible Signature violation check.
You can disable the Service Program Level Check by running the STRPTCM command.
Octo KanBan Preview
We have included a TD/OMS Rest Service to work as a target in the Octo Kanban Plugin.
For this Rest Service to work. It has to be made accessible on your development IBM i. Please note that Octo requires an Apache HTTPS connection to your IBM i.
Use the CFGRESTSRV command to create a default Apache HTTP configuration. Then ask your system administrator to add the certificate and the secured port number.
For more information, please open the Octo Manual.
