      In this article, we suggest you to get acquainted with the free editor of web languages - CodeLobster IDE. It is presented on the software market for a long time already, and it wins a lot of fans.
       CodeLobster IDE allows you to edit PHP, HTML, CSS, JavaScript and TypeScript files, it highlights the syntax and gives hints for tags, functions and their parameters. This editor easily deals with those files that contain a mixed content.
       If you insert PHP code in your HTML template, then the editor correctly highlights both HTML tags and PHP functions. The same applies to CSS and JavaScript/TypeScript code, which is contained in HTML files.
       The program includes auto-completion function, which greatly speeds up the programmer's work and eliminates the possibility of errors.
       

       
      CodeLobster IDE provides contextual help on all supported programming languages, it uses the most up to date documentation at this moment, downloading it from official sites. So we can quickly get a description of any HTML tag, CSS attribute, PHP or JavaScript/TypeScript function by pressing the F1 key.
       The built-in PHP debugger allows you to execute PHP scripts step by step, sequentially moving through the lines of code. You can assign check points, view the process of the work of loops, and monitor the values of all variables during the execution of the script.
       Other useful functions and features of the IDE:
      A pair highlighting of parentheses and tags - you will never have to count parentheses or quotation marks, the editor will take care of it. Highlighting of blocks, selection and collapsing of code snippets, bookmarks to facilitate navigation on the edited file, recognition and building of the complete structure of PHP projects - these functions ensure easy work with projects of any scale.  Support for 17 user interface languages, among them English, German, Russian, Spanish, French and others. The program works on the following operation systems: Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 10, Mac OS, Linux, Ubuntu, Fedora, Debian.  The professional version of CodeLobster IDE provides the programmer with even more features.
      For example, you have an opportunity to work with projects on a remote server with use of the built-in FTP client. You can edit the selected files, preview the results and then synchronize the changes with the files on the hosting.
      In addition the professional version includes an extensive set of plug-ins:
      Fully implemented support for JavaScript (and TypeScript) libraries, such as jQuery, Node.js, AngularJS, AngularTS, BackboneJS, EmberJS, VueJS and MeteorJS. A large set of extensions that help to work with PHP frameworks - CakePHP, CodeIgniter, Laravel, Phalcon, Smarty, Symfony, Twig and Yii plug-ins. Plugins for working with the most popular CMS - Drupal, Joomla, Magento and WordPress. Also CodeLobster IDE has special plug-in for Bootstrap.  
      We can download and install any framework directly from the program without being distracted from the main tasks.
       In general, for a year of work, our team had no complaints against the editor. CodeLobster IDE works fast, does not hang and allows us to work even with large PHP projects.

      Atlassian and Mindville announced on thursday that Atlassian has acquired Mindville.  This means that Atlassian acquire Mindville's asset and configuration management product Insight, which strengthen their psoition against competitors like ServiceNow.
      The CEO of Mindville Tommy Nordahl is well known to us in Stockholm who have participated in the Atlassian Usergroup events that I ran for two years. For many he is Riada, the company he started many years ago as the Atlassian company number one in Stockholm (and sweden?). Lately he has focused more on the asset and configuration managament product Insight and I am not surprised that Atlassian now have aquired it.
      Atlassian and ServiceNow are both gearing up for a battle. Since ServiceNow are strong in the asset and configuration management it makes sense that Atlassian want to stregthen their portfolio in their area.  With more than 1700 customers already and Atlassian now adding resources I think we will see the cloud adaptation speed up a lot.
      If you have not looked at Insight before, then I suggest you do. Not only is it looking great and is easy to work with, it is also powerful and a very useful addition to your support organization. Using Insight alongside Jira Service Desk and Confluence is probably the most powerful way to manage incidents in your organization. The fact that you can directly connect it to your development and opertions team who already work in Jira make it even more powerful.
       
       
      I just want to say congratulation to Tommy and his amazing team for this accomplishment. To Atlassian I can only say good job on this acquisition. It will take you another step closer to being the natural choice for mid sized and large organizations, just as you already are the natural choice for small companies and all development teams today.

      The requests to get Portfolio for Jira for Cloud users have been loud and finally Atlassian released a Cloud version. They also made a very odd choice to rename Portfolio for Jira to Advanced Roadmaps and place it behind the Cloud Premium barrier.
      Portfolio for Jira has long been the better choice for Jira Server and Jira DC users. The features have been perfectly suited for managers to keep an overview over large programs and initiatives with relative ease. As such it has been the envy of Cloud users for years and it comes as no surprise that Atlassian would port this to Cloud given their focus on the cloud platform lately.
      Renaming Portfolio for Jira is also no surprise as it confuse managers with two portfolio products where the high level Portfolio tool Jira Align is the product Atlassian seem to want to focus on. Renaming it to Advanced Roadmaps is however a very strange choice as it is not a simple roadmap tool. It also make the naming confusion shift from Portfolio to Roadmaps as Cloud users have been using the limited Roadmaps feature for quite some time.
      The new Advanced Roadmaps is only available for Cloud Premium users. This makes sense as Atlassian want to push users into their new price model. Currently there is not much that would warrant double the price for Cloud Premium so Atlassian need something that is enticing enough for users to make the shift. Advanced Roadmaps could be one of those features, but they need more as Advanced Roadmaps cost $2.3/user and month at it's lowest level and Cloud Premium cost an additional $7/user and month.
      Feature wise Advanced Roadmaps is still great with the two main selling points of great overview and the ability to scale the issues with more levels. Here are some of the selling points from Atlassian:
      With the changes coming to Roadmaps where all projects will get them, and not just Next-Gen projects, combined with the promise that Advanced Roadmaps will somehow be connected to a more comprehensive whole this could be a pretty good thing for Cloud Premium users. Adding Advanced Roadmaps to Cloud Premium will now add the ability to scale issue types beyond the standard 3 levels, which is something people have asked for for a very long time.

      Will it be enough to warrant the high price tag for Cloud Premium? I doubt that as Advanced Roadmaps is only really useful when you pass a certain number of teams. Doubling the price tag will probably discourage most low to mid-range clients. The fact that you can only have a 7 day test version and that you need to setup a new cloud instance to even test this if you are on a regular cloud plan is also a problem. With more features added into Cloud Premium however I think more and more will make the shift over to that.
      Overall this is a good new addition and package it with the Cloud Premium offer will make it more accessible and therefore used, which is a good thing. It's a bit sad to see Atlassian being so aggressive in their way of forcing cloud users into their Premium tier that is making some old customers a bit annoyed, but I think it will be good in the long run.

      This video is about Halp's integration with Microsoft Teams. If you'd like more information or to try Halp in Microsoft Teams visit https://halp.com/microsoft-teams

      Atlassian has announced that they have acquired Halp. Halp is an interesting take on support for Slack that allow you to create support tickets directly from conversations in Slack. As Halp can also be integrated with Jira Service Desk it makes sense for Atlassian to make the investment to purchase Halp to further strengthen their service portfolio on the support side.
      Halp have made a bit of an impact in its only 12 months life span and with the simplicity of just posting an emote in Slack to create separate support tickets it has been a hit. Good integrations with Jira Service Desk and Zendesk has of course been a big part and now with integrations to Microsoft Teams it is even better.
      Not only will Halp make it so much easier to keep track of support questions in Slack, but by integrating with other tools such as Jira Service Desk, then you have a powerhouse. It will update on both sides of the integration allowing you to meet your clients where they feel most comfortable and still maintain proper workflows. You can even connect it to Confluence or Slack messages to create knowledge bases.
      This is of course another step to connect closer to Slack that purchased the rights to Atlassians previous chat products. Naturally Slack is very happy about this acquisition:
      In the future we will see deeper integrations with Jira Service Desk and Confluence for sure, but there are hints forr new integrations with OpsGenie and Trello for example. It will undoubtedly be an interesting journey to follow in the future.
