New Agilo Pro 1.0 Released with Agilo for Scrum 0.8 (2009-08-05)

The new Agilo Pro version adds to the already complete feature set of Agilo for Scrum also a very nice virtual Whiteboard, where very intuitively Team Members and Scrum Masters will be allowed to swap tasks around just by dragging and dropping them, and the Daily Scrum will probably be a more effective meeting. If you are interested, please download it from Agilo for Trac website and give us feedback for improvement via the Agilo User Group.

New Version Released 0.7.4 (2009-06-02)

With the last release of Agilo we increased a lot the compatibility with Internet Explorer (IE6, IE7 and IE8) and fixed some more issues which were becoming annoying. The complete release note can be found on the Agilo Blog. You can find a complete list of the improvement made on the Agilo Development Portal.

New Version Released 0.7.3 (2009-01-20)

We recently release a new version of Agilo for Scrum 0.7.3 that works with Trac 0.11. Major changes include the removal of dependencies with matplotlib and numpy, now all the charts are generated using a fully client-side solution- based on javascript, no plugins - Agilo can be downloaded from this website.

Bugs/Feature Requests

We have a Google User Group where you can ask questions and request support.

Agilo should be considered a patch rather than a plugin. In particular, it has issues coexisting with standard Trac installations. While these can sometimes be worked around, it's fair to say that Agilo is closer to a patch than a plugin.
