In light of recently-discovered security issues, Assembla has upgraded its version of Git and now runs on Git v2.17.1
Git Security Upgrade
Security Release: 2FA & Code Scanning Tool
Two-Factor Authentication: Use a second authentication device with your user profile to verify identity on login and/or require all users in your portfolio to use two-factor authentication when logging in to their Assembla account.
Code Security Scanning Tool: Scan commits automatically for passwords and secret keys that may be left in the source code.

Sometimes, when merging a long list of changes from a development branch into the master, it’s useful to squash those commits into one change for ease of review and to declutter the repo’s commit history. Assembla now offers the option to squash all of the commits in a merge request into one commit after the merge is approved and completed.
This feature is only available for Git repositories. To learn more, check out our help article.
New Features Released
Advanced User Permission Controls
This highly requested feature gives account admins granular control to assign access rights to everything within a project including code, tickets, and more. With this, admins can significantly reduce the amount of time they spend managing their teams.
Bulk File Uploads
Assembla users no longer need other tools or to log into the command line to commit new files, saving time and allowing more to get done.
Infinite Scrolling Users will see files automatically populate while scrolling through the code browser. As a part of this new feature, the previous limit on the number of files that can be viewed in the code browser in the webapp.
Time & Ticket Tools Bug Fixes
- "Worked Hours" and "Work Remaining" updated in Ticket comment, but "Time" section doesn't update at all
- "Worked Hours" and "Work Remaining" updated in Ticket comment, but "Time" section requires a browser refresh to update
Limits for Tree Files Removed
With the introduction of infinite scrolling on our new Code Browser UI, there is no longer a need to limit the number of files in a tree. So, we've removed that limit. Feel free to upload files to your heart's content.
Track Commits with Trello
We know you've been eagerly awaiting our newest improvement. We're excited to announce that now, in addition to merge requests, you can also track individual commits with the Trello integration. Simply follow the same flow as before, but now you'll have the option to choose between merge requests and commits on the first screen. For more information, check out our help center.
Code Browser Updates
We are excited to announce a few updates to our in-app code browser! Users can now edit their text files & commit their changes from the Assembla Web App. Additionally, users can drag & drop files onto the screen in order to copy their content onto a new file within the repo as well as view version diffs with colorized syntax. For more information, check out our help center.
Users have reported that when exporting a Wiki to PDF, the images in a Wiki do not also export. That issue has now been fixed.
Sprint Progress Charts
The granularity on sprint progress charts has been updated. Now, when a sprint lasts 30 days or less, the chart will display daily progress. When the sprint lasts 1-6 months, the chart will display weekly progress. And when the spring lasts more than 6 months, the chart will display monthly progress.
