Monthly report May 2014

This month, one of our core team member lost his computer. Hopefuly, warranty & repair worked. No data loss. Excepting this hiccup, TrivialDev core team focus there effort on 2 topics.

Fixing bugs for the forthcoming FusionForge 5.3.1 maintenance release

5.3.1 should land next June 6th. TrivialDev fixed 8 bugs:

  • 3 in the document manager (the mass action feature was broken with InternetExplorer 8, the zipfile backup was corrupted on Windows, the webdav access was buggy for some webdav clients),
  • 2 in the Tracker system (a nice 404 error and a wrong URL in the notification mail),
  • 1 about the User Unix Status (the unix status was incorrectly activated),
  • 1 about global search for documents (the role access was not tested, some private informations could leak)
  • 1 about the Jenkins/Hudson plugin (again, the role access was not tested, some private informations could leak)

You can get all details about these bugs here. 5.3.1 will be the first maintenance release of the 5.3. We will try to publish a maintenance release every 2 months from now on.

New features for the next FusionForge main version:

  • Docman webdav write access start to land in the master branch. You can follow details about this work here. Do not hesitate to test and report feedback. mkcol, delete, put, move commands should work. lock is under heavy work since it’s required a lot of rewrite even in the PHP standard GUI.
  • Docman move mass action is now available. You can now select multiple documents and move them to targeted folder. No more move file by file.
  • Cleanup Javascript continue. We update the jQuery, jQuery UI framework. The tipsy plugin has been drop since tooltip feature is now a common widget of the jQuery UI framework. FusionForge has themable skins. jQuery UI has same features. Both are sync now. When user change FusionForge skin, jQuery UI change too.
  • FusionForge has a simple feedback message system. 3 global PHP vars are used. Until now, the system read the feedback, error, warning messages from the parameters set in the URL. Now the messages are stored in a cookie, since these messages are user-oriented. No more &feedback= or &error_msg= in the URL.
