The new features in CompBL focus on improving the usefulness of our reports. The new reports help users identify quickly the information they need.
Customized templates and a command line interface (CLI) can be combined to enable a fully-automatic generation of release notes, which can significantly accelerate processes especially in organizaiton working with Agile and continuous integration.

What’s New in CompBL v2.4.7 ?

1. New Reports

CompBL reports are clearer and simpler than ever. A summary of changes is followed by a table  that can be grouped by activities,   listing the files changed together with file owner, the nature of the changes, the contributing stream file owner  and a time stamp. Changes can be grouped by activities. Merged file versionss are marked by a distinct icon to allow quick access to files likely to break builds.
