In addition to the story points feature, the Tableau software will also, for the first time, be available for the Mac. The Apple edition of Tableau 8.2 will have all the features of the Windows edition. The software also takes advantage of some of the Mac's innate features, such as the crisp Retina Display. The icons and controls also have been recast in the Mac's native look and feel.
The Mac edition came about due to customer demand, Ajenstat said. The company had noticed that a sizable portion of its users were already running the Windows edition of the software on Macs, by placing them in virtual machines. This is the first time they will be able to run the application natively.
"There's definitely more Macs in the office than there was before," Ajenstat said.
