    2. Provides Product Backlog View, Release Backlog View and Sprint Backlog (Please note we need the capability to distinguish between the release backlog and product backlog)\

    Product Backlog and Sprint Backlog only but since iterations are organized in a parent/child structure, it is possible to see the backlog in is entirety, at the release level or at the sprint level  You can also use the areas to filter which work items are relevant to a particular situation.

    3. Allows for dragging items from each backlog to another backlog (i.e. release to product backlog, sprint to product backlog, sprint to release backlog)

    You can drag work items to different iterations and area but not to different backlog since there is no formal distinction

    4. Allows for stack ranking of items in each backlog view with drag and drop capability to change ranking

    Yes but although it is possible to rank every work items in every iterations, work items are only ranked relatively to their peer at the backlog level. We are currently working on a solution so that work items stays ranked within iterations

    5. Provides a customizable task board

    Yes. Customizable through the configuration mapping file.

    6. Provide for a customizable scrum board

    No distinction are made between the task board and a scrum board. Possibility to use the Fast Track add-on in version 2012 as a distinct board. We are evaluating the possibility to add multiple user defined boards in the future.

    7. Allows for dragging items within scrum board and task board to change status of items

    Yes. Work item change state when they are moved from a column to another in the task board.

    8. Allows for updating estimates, assignments and task from within the task board and scrum board

    Yes

    9. Allows for reporting of release burndown in points,

    Yes. The scope of the reporting is an iteration.

    10. Sprint burndown in points

    Yes. Version 2012 with Agile dashboard add-on only for now.

    12. Allows for reporting on team velocity and showing velocity trends

    Iteration velocity and average velocity. Trends can be visualized using the Sunset Graph. The Sunset Graph is available with version 2012 and the Agile dashboard add-on.

    13. Allows for customizable dashboard for easy management reporting

    Yes. Possibility to configure the iterations that are reported on.

    14. Allows for providing reports on defects.
