Improved agile UX

Previously, both Scrum board and burn down chart showed the same "Value info" data according to Scrum settings. However, this could lead to some inconveniences as some specific data can make good sense when shown in Scrum board but not so good when shown in burn down chart. That's why we have split "Value info" settings separately for Scrum board and burn down chart. Newly, the setting for burn down chart can be found in Sprint settings, i.e. when creating a new sprint or editing an existing one by clicking on a pencil icon next to the sprint name.

Improved documents

Now you may add on your personalized homepage a module containing the list of documents (or another selected entity) across various projects. Just add a new module type "List" and for this list select entity type "Documents". If you want to see selected projects only, specify them in the filter settings of the module. If you prefer having an overview of all documents in projects, just leave the filter empty. Using the list module, you can choose from a broad variety of different entities to show, documents is only one of them.
