New Cerebro Features

User Profile Edit


Administrators are enabled to edit user profiles. If a user belongs to one and the only universe Administrator can edit any profile field, including user e-mail and password.

Users are enabled to edit their logins.

A Deleted Account Restoration


It has been made possible to restore a deleted user account by his/her e-mail address.

Note: a user account can belong to several universes at the same time. Thus, account removal from a universe doesn't necessarily mean its complete deletion. If a restoration attempt fails it means that the account hasn't been deleted and is active. In this case use Search and Invite options (Administrator window -> Universe tab).

Pop-up Tooltips

Columns in task lists (Navigator, Interesting Tasks list) have pop-up tooltips now, e.g., pointing to one of the Planned costs/Actual costs/Balance columns causes a pop-up tooltip with detailed info on all 3 parameters.

Pointing to the thumbnails column causes a pop-up tooltip with main properties of the task.

If Critical Issues Indication is turned on, pointing to the red progress bar causes a tooltip with issues details, etc.



Columns with tags now have headlines. These headlines are preserved while being exported to Excel.


User Statistics


A click on a task on the User Stats page makes Navigator switch to the same task.

Statistics re-calculates after pressing Calculate Statistics button.


Cerebro sends continuous requests to Cargador file transfer service for files status instant check, i.e., when a file is uploaded (deleted) to (from) Cargador folder, Cerebro instantly changes its status (indicates the filename in red if a file is deleted, and vice versa, changes red to white if a file has appeared).

Upload resume capability. If file upload to Cerebro terminates due to network connection failure, local Cargador service detects it and resumes the upload process after the connection is restored.

Connection Check

There is a new option in the Connection Options window - to check connection availability to the entered host address.


Bugs Fixed

  • A bug while sending Review using directory mapping to a file storage folder is fixed

  • Cerebro after having been minimized to tray autosaves its state every 10 minutes to be restored after force quit or power failure.

  • Tracing error while switching between dock widgets

  • An error while adding a pre-reviewed file to a new definition

  • No more is required while loading (linux)

  • In case of unstable network connection Cerebro tries to reconnect automatically (up to 5 consequent attempts) before log off

  • Message scroll with pressed Control button is fixed (in Forum)

  • Message text copying to clipboard by pressing Ctrl+C in Forum is fixed (earlier it caused html code to be copied instead of the text itself).
