For a summary of items in this release, see the following highlights:
Quick Planner enhancements
The Quick Planner user interface has been completely revised in this release. For details, see New & Noteworthy Details.
Large files can be stored in an external content store
You can now configure the Rational Team Concert application server to store files that are larger than a specified size outside the default database. The external content repository can be configured as a folder on the server's local file system, or it can point to a WebDAV server. To configure an external content repository, edit the properties on the Advanced Properties page in the administrative web client.
Support for custom link types
You can now create custom link types for files under source control. The project area editor in the web client includes a new Link Types page, which displays the available link types (predefined and user-defined) for files under source control. To create a link type, click Add, and then complete the fields in the Add Link Type window.
By default, new link types are available to all project areas in the repository. To disable a user-defined link type within a project area, select Manage the link types for this project area, and then clear the check box beside the link type. To create or modify link types, you must be assigned to a role that has the Administer Link Types permission.
Load rules behave the same in builds as they do in source control
Load rules now behave the same way in Rational Team Concert builds as they do when you use them with Rational Team Concert source control.
Support for Rational Team Concert webhooks to GitLab
Rational Team Concert now supports webhooks (web callbacks) to GitLab. These webhooks support Push events and Comments triggers. When a push event occurs, a link to the commit is added to all the Rational Team Concert work items that are mentioned in the commit comment. When a Rational Team Concert work item is mentioned in an issue or commit discussion, a comment is added to the Rational Team Concert work item.
Support for push permissions and preconditions in GitHub Enterprise
Rational Team Concert permissions and preconditions for Git push operations are now supported in a GitHub Enterprise repository.
Enterprise Extensions: Packaging for IBM UrbanCode Deploy includes enhanced auditing ability
IBM UrbanCode Deploy 6.2.6 allows more details about incremental z/OS component versions. The work item packaging feature can now create IBM UrbanCode Deploy packages that include complete details about the source configuration and build maps for the deployable artifacts created by the Dependency Build. This enhancement makes it easier to confirm the contents of a deployable package.
