XPStoryStudio / dead

From the first sight, XPStoryStudio may evolve into good tool, but in reality it was released in beta in 2004 and development stopped after beta release. So if you are not satisfied with current functionality there are no chances to change anything. Tool by itself is quite crude. Some things are good like iterations and user stories with tasks, but usability and user focused functionality is quite poor. No todos, no project team concept, no easy user story change state, no user load. In fact the tool can only plan iterations and this will be not enough for any real life project, just for very small projects or students.

Pros Cons
  • Automatic installer that works pretty good
  • Broken design in FireFox
  • Problems with reports. They just not there (You will see "The 'Reporting' section of this site has not yet been implemented" message in Reports section)
  • No releases, iterations only
  • Seems there will be no more releases. Last update 18-Jan-2004.

Platform [Technologies]: Windows [ASP.NET]
