The mentioned progressbar includes drill-down links to the issue-list which preloads the specific filters thus providing quick links to open/closed issues targetted to a corresponding version. Simply click on the number left to *_open_* to see all open issues in the issue-list. If you like to know which issues are already solved/closed simply click on the number left to *_closed_*.

23 13 Mischa The Evil
24 13 Mischa The Evil
If you have the appropriate permissions you can change the Roadmap-view in two ways:
25 13 Mischa The Evil
26 13 Mischa The Evil
# You can attach a wikipage to the version (see [[RedmineProjectSettings#Versions]]) which can be used for describing main objectives of the version etc.
27 13 Mischa The Evil
# You can select the trackers of which individual issues, which are targetted to the corresponding version, are listed in a way that you will see an area with all related issues directly under the version. This behaviour can be changed as an administrator in the area of the [[RedmineIssueTrackingSetup#Trackers|trackers]].
