Release Notes: This release brings the Omniscent AA (or Ubiquitous AA), which allows team members to microblog from virtually any instant messaging network (GTalk, IRC, etc.). Any IM network to which the Pidgin/Finch/nullclient is connected will receive messages as shouts.
Release Notes: The client now displays the tickets assigned to the programmer, and aa showticket opens the browser with the chosen trac ticket. The server/web now allows comments to each "tweet" to be stored.
Release Notes: (AA) log validation was implemented: the server now sends out emails to random team members asking them to validate a peer's logs for the day, encouraging them to write good, descriptive tweets of their programming activity. The (AA) client has a new parameter to display the remaining time for the session and for each 15min timeslot within which a tweet must be made. Numerous bugfixes and minor enhancements to both server and client were also carried out.
Release Notes: This release adds a new option for logging development activities offline (aa alert) or online (aa shout). It also added a PyGTK GUI with GNOME integration. It uses espeak + libnotify for reminding the programmer to tweet/share his activity. The server now has an option to add screencasts per log section, which is essential for distributed development.
