- Harmony – At last

Kiln Harmony helps your business by letting developers use the version control system they prefer, whether it’s Mercurial or Git, and then lets them team up easily. With Kiln Harmony you can branch & merge, clone, push or pull in a single repository using either Mercurial or Git. And anyone else can access the code, using either Mercurial or Git. At last, Kiln brings Harmony to your team.

- New Project Management UI: More information — fewer clicks

We’ve made it easier to organize and manage your projects: Taking cues from the smooth single-page design of Trello, Kiln’s updated repository management and project setting pages have been unified into a single page that’s easy to read and navigate. With the new Kiln project management UI, you’ll have everything in one place.

- Electric DAG: Track your changes, end-to-end

The Electric DAG helps you keep track of changes that have been made to a particular tag or build, who's contributing to a project (and who isn't) and how much. The Electric DAG gives you a great visual representation of what changes have been made, who made the changes and even "lights up" so you can track a particular change from its source and all through your codebase. This can help avoid bottlenecks that can delay your product releases. The Kiln Electric DAG lets you know where your code's been and where it's going.
