Issue breakdowns now in Sleuth!

Sleuth now provides breakdowns by issue type and issue status for the issues your team is shipping!

The new Issue breakdowns chart, visible from the Project Metrics, Team Metrics, and Work in Progress dashboards, provides visibility into the status and type of any issues referenced by the PRs you have in focus on those dashboards. For Project Metrics and Team Metrics, this means you can see breakdowns for issues you've shipped, while Work-in-Progress now displays breakdowns for issues that you're about to ship!

The chart also provides a clickable drill-through to a detailed listing of those issues with links to their source records in your issue tracker. Check out this help doc for more!

View environment drift details right from Sleuth!

Sleuth now provides detailed visibility into the specific deploys, PRs, commits, and issues that comprise the drift between any two environments!

Minimizing drift contributes positively to all four DORA metrics. With this latest improvement, Sleuth now not only quantifies drift in terms of deploys and time but also shows the specific changes that need to be resolved in order to bring two environments in sync.
