5.1 Release Notes

Jul 5, 2013



We’re excited to announce Shotgun 5.1, featuring a simplified way to create and stay up to date on projects, a super fast viewing mode for quickly browsing through the things you're tracking, and a handful of updates to Screening Room.

Big, Beautiful Project Overviews

The redesigned Project Overview page gives you fast access to all the information you need in one simple, visual view. A big, beautiful billboard image greets people who join the project, while the Activity Stream and Info, People and Media widgets let them catch up on all the recent work. You can also send notes directly from here to have them go out to all the people on the project--great for keeping small teams or early stage productions connected!

Screening Room Updates

We improved Screening Room with a handful of UI updates, features, and bug fixes. You can now stow the panels in the Web Player, and add Versions to a playlist in the timeline. Screening Room for RV gets these updates and more, including backwards compatibility with the previous RV package, so you can update when you're ready.

A Faster Way to Browse

Browsing the things on your site just got a whole lot faster and easier. We added a new viewing mode to all your pages so you can quickly navigate through the list of things you're tracking, then select one on the left to view its details on the right. You can use this new mode to add notes, create tasks, browse versions, and more.

All hosted sites will be upgraded this weekend. Locally installed clients can upgrade upon request via the standard support process. To learn about the full details of the 5.1 release, head over to our support site to read the release notes.

We hope you enjoy this release as much as we do. Be sure to let us know what you think!
