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.

It is important to distinguish EAP from pre-release software. Please note that the quality of EAP versions may at times be far below even usual beta standards.

Where to Send Feedback

YouTrack "Gentle" Stand-Alone EAP Builds

The upcoming release of YouTrack "Gentle" will bring several highly anticipated updates including, but not limited to, the most wanted YouTrack feature so far — localization (see the original feature request). As of now, YouTrack is ready to speak German, French, and Russian, in addition to the default English. Spanish locaization will be added in later EAP builds. To select your system language, open the Administration > Settings page (you need low-level administrator permissions to do this) and choose from four currently available language options. Plus, if are a YouTrack Stand-alone user and a desired language isn’t available yet, you can translate YouTrack on your own. Or, you could create a personal YouTrack with your own slang, if you like. A How-To guide on this topic is coming soon.

The first EAP builds also contain re-designed full-screen issue mode, and create new and edit issue screens, new contrast color scheme for Agile Board, searching for similar issues (JT-7048), cloning issues (JT-4024), and other features, enhancements, fixes and so on.


Please note that Agile Board enhancements (feature request) are being actively developed at the moment and are not included in the EAP builds yet, so please stay tuned for updates!

Please don't hesitate to grab your chance and influence the upcoming release! We would highly appreciate your feedback, comments and suggestions. Please share your opinion with us!

Important Upgrade Notice!

We strongly recommend that you evaluate YouTrack "Gentle" EAP builds in a test environment, since you will not be able to revert to YouTrack 4.x other than by rolling back to a pre-upgrade backup of your database and losing your progress along the way!

YouTrack "Gentle" InCloud EAP Instance

For YouTrack InCloud users, we’ve created the following EAP instances where you can try out the newest features in the respective language:

On each of these instances, a registered user has permissions of a project administrator and thus can create and manage his own projects.

Also, on each instance you will find a project called Localization Problem, where you can create issues about problems with current translations. We appreciate your input!

In addition to these instances, we have also created general YouTrack Gentle EAP Sandbox InCloud instance, which allows you to check how the translations can be switched. Log in as a Guest user just to view current issues or register a new user account. Please note that any newly registered user account has administrator's permissions in order to be able to switch system languages. However, please remember that this is not your own personal instance and respect your co-evaluators: Please don't make any global changes, that might affect their work. We rely on your common sense

(warning) What you need to know about this server

  • 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. So 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.
