Please note: The packaged installation for OpenProject 7.0 (Community Edition) will be released soon (there will be an announcement). Users of the Cloud Edition will automatically get access to OpenProject 7.0 on May 20, 2017.
OpenProject 7.0 is the biggest OpenProject release yet with amazing new features: A new interactive timeline, hierarchies in the work package list, multi-select custom fields and much more.
New integrated Gantt chart / timeline
OpenProject 7.0 introduces a new Gantt chart which is integrated in the work package list (#13785).
The new timeline is much more interactive and user-friendly than the old timeline.
Display hierarchies in work package list
You can display hierarchies on the work package list and collapse and expand them (#24647).
Attribute group configuration for work package types
With OpenProject 7.0 you can configure which attributes are displayed for a work package type (#24123).
You can therefore control which attributes are shown and which are hidden by default.
Filter based on date in work package list
The work package list now supports filtering based on fixed dates. This affects all date attributes (e.g. start / due date, created on / updated on) (#22585).
New header navigation
The header navigation in OpenProject is updated and displays the current project. Additionally, the logo has been centered and existing menus have been reordered (#24465).
Archive and delete projects from project settings
As an administrator you can archive and delete projects right from the project settings (#24913).
Zen-mode on work package page
With the zen mode on the work package list, you can maximize the available screen real estate by hiding the side and top navigation (#18216).
This provides a cleaner and larger user interface to work with.
Multi-select custom fields (Enterprise / Cloud Edition)
With these custom fields you can select multiple values for work package custom fields at once and also filter based on them.
Logo upload and custom color scheme (Enterprise / Cloud Edition)
Users of the OpenProject Enterprise Edition and Cloud Edition can upload their own company’s logo instead of the OpenProject logo.
The performance – especially for the work package list – has been improved. Loading and displaying work packages is faster.
OpenProject 7.0 includes several design improvements and improves the user experience for users accessing OpenProject on a mobile device.
Substantial number of bug fixes
