Last week, I was going through some specifications in Confluence with a relatively new Atlassian employee. As he was looking for a page he'd recently worked on, I casually mentioned, "Just hit G then R." He did, and the Recently viewed pages popup appeared, letting him see all the pages he'd been working on recently. Him: "MATE! I didn't know about this! You're my hero." Me: "No worries mate." Alright, maybe he didn't say I was his hero, but it made me realize that it's quite easy for Atlassians

Interactive rebase in SourceTree

Over the last year we've introduced interactive rebase support in SourceTree on both Mac and Windows to help developers rewrite their commit history easier than ever. Often we've found this feature to be regarded as both mysterious and dangerous by many DVCS users, so we thought we'd help you learn what this feature does, how it can be a great asset in your workflow, and how to use it safely. What is "rebasing interactively?" In short, rebasing is a way of changing your commit history. You'll often

Bamboo 5.5: instant access to Stash repos

Few software projects start their lives spread out across multiple repositories. But, neither do most projects that remain in a single repo forever. Take JIRA, for example: At 12 years of age, it is comprised of millions of lines of code stored across 19 repositories. As a company, Atlassian has hundreds of repos. Whether that's good practice or not, that's reality for us and for thousands of our customers. So with Bamboo 5.5 we set out to make building from all those repos a little bit easier. Connect
