One thing we found lacking was YouTrack’s ability to integrate nicely with Slack. It was technically doable using the Custom Workflows feature, but editing the workflows was a bit… cumbersome, requiring a special editor and DSL. (That’s Domain Specific Language, not Digital Subscriber Line!) Hello JavaScript Workflows Fortunately, JetBrains was already...

Most photography professionals know that metadata management has far-reaching, practical applications for large image libraries.

This feature stages files that are being moved to Cold Storage in a pending state for a number of days (currently 14) before they fully enter Cold Storage. There are a few key reasons for this change: the cooling status saves our customers time and money, and better aligns with how they really use the application. We observed that files were often put into Cold Storage prematurely (before they were really...
