What is Early Access Program (EAP)

JetBrains Early Access Program lets the development community evaluate YouTrack bug tracker on early development stages, participate in discussions, submit bug reports and feature requests, and otherwise influence the planning and development of the product.
We hope this EAP will be both valuable and exciting. We highly appreciate your feedback and ideas!
Please rate builds you download so that other users can judge on their quality.

* By default, all currently available features are enabled for _all users_.
* This is Early Access Program, and we reserve the right to update the server as often as we see fit, without any additional announcement, and thus you might encounter a brief periods of downtime. Please be patient.
* We might update the build, which runs on the hosted EAP instance, more often than we publish stand-alone EAP builds (e.g. for testing purposes), and thus the number of build on hosted instance and the number of the latest published stand-alone EAP build might be different.

h2. YouTrack Harmony Stand-Alone EAP Builds

{warning:title=Important Upgrade Notice!|icon=false}
# We strongly recommend that you evaluate YouTrack 'Harmony' EAP builds in a test environment, since *you will not be able to revert to YouTrack 5.x* other than by rolling back to a pre-upgrade backup of your database and losing your progress along the way\!
# Please *upgrade your environment to Java 1.7* before running YouTrack 6.0 EAP. *Starting from* *build #11415,* *earlier{*}* Java versions are not supported*. 
{warning}


h3. YouTrack Harmony Stand-Alone RC Builds

With the first RC of the upcoming YouTrack 'Harmony' release we are introducing the major update for YouTrack distribution and brand new YouTrack installer. This update will affect mostly our users on MS Windows and those of you who run YouTrack as WAR in a servlet container.

Please consider the following key-points _before_ the upgrade:
- Running YouTrack 'Harmony' requires Java 7 or higher. Support for the previous Java 6 versions (Java 1.6) is deprecated.
- The WAR distribution will also be deprecated due to the major changes made to package structure. To run YouTrack as WAR in a servlet container, you will have to deploy two WAR packages, and perform a time-consuming configuration procedure. Thus, we do not recommend using this distribution. Please consider using to other installation options.
- YouTrack MSI does not contain Apache Tomcat anymore. Thus, the configuration procedure differs significantly from the previous one. Please refer to the dedicated documentation for details:

-* [YTD6:Upgrading YouTrack with ZIP Distribution]
-* [YTD6:Upgrading YouTrack with JAR Distribution]

{show-if:mode=edit}


With this EAP we introduce a new approach to evaluation of new features in EAP builds. By default, visibility (hence, availability) of new features in EAP builds are controlled by so called 'Feature Flags'. That is, you can enable and disable these features at your will.

h3. Enabling New Features in Stand-Alone Builds

Basically, a _feature-flag_ is a JVM '-D' start parameter that you must provide when you start your YouTrack Standalone EAP Build. You can provide these parameters either in the _starting command_ (thus features will be enabled for the current session only) or _in the configuration file of your JVM_ (thus you don't need to control constantly whether you have enabled the feature or not).

Feature-flags are divided in two types:
* *General*. These feature-flags are binary, and allow only switching a feature on/off for your YouTrack Standalone server. That is, when such 'general' feature in enabled, it is available for all users on your server ('All Users' group).
* *Per User Group*. These feature flags allow enabling features for both all users and specific user groups only. To enable a feature with such flag, you can use two methods: binary 'true' value and with a list of user groups, to which the feature should be available. For example:
{code}
-Djetbrains.youtrack.feature.newReports=true
  or
-Djetbrains.youtrack.feature.newReports=Admins,youtrack-developers
{code}

[Read more about YouTrack Java Start Parameters >|YTD6:YouTrack Start Java Parameters]

h4. Currently Available Feature-Flags

If a parameter supports customizing user groups, then you should provide a comma-separated list of groups.

|| Feature || Java Start Parameter || Custom User Groups ||
| New 'Geeky' UI | \-Djetbrains.youtrack.feature.newUi=true | Yes |
| New Reports Screen | \-Djetbrains.youtrack.feature.newReports=true | Yes |
| Canvas Image Tool | \-Djetbrains.youtrack.feature.canvasImageTool=true | Yes |
| Customizable Keyboard Shortcuts | \-Djetbrains.youtrack.feature.customShortcuts=true | No |
| Multiple Drafts | \-Djetbrains.youtrack.feature.multipleDrafts=true | Yes |
| Dashboard with Widgets | \-Djetbrains.youtrack.feature.dashboard=true | Yes |
| UI Redesign:FSI & create/edit issue mode | Djetbrains.youtrack.feature.regularUiUpdate=true | Yes |

{panel:bgColor=#FFFFFF}(!) *Attention\!*
* The new '{{AND}}' operator in search queries is _enabled_, by default, and is _not_ controlled by any feature-flag.
{panel}

In any other regard, installation/running procedures are similar to those of the released builds.
