Eventum 1.6.1 Released!

We released 1.6.1 last friday with these changes:

РFixed the installation procedure to add the INDEX privilege to the MySQL user (Jọo)
– Fixed bug with handling HTML characters in Internal FAQ entries (Bryan)
– Fixed bug displaying priority in current filters (Bryan)
– Added feature to set X-Eventum-Type header in new assignment email (Bryan)
– Fixed bug that allowed users to access attachments, custom fields, phone calls and time tracking from issues they did not have access too (Bryan)
– Added new workflow method to check if an address should be emailed (Bryan)
РFixed the issue searching routine to properly handle disabled fulltext search and customer integration features (Jọo)
РImproved the IRC Bot script to be easier to configure (Jọo)
– Added feature to update issue assignment, status and release for multiple issues at the same (Bryan)
– Fixed labels on workload by date range graphs (Bryan)
– Added feature to highlight quoted replies in notes and emails using smarty plugin from Joscha Feth (Bryan)
РUpdated the bundled XML-RPC library to the latest PEAR 1.4.0 release (Jọo)

The most important change is this last one above. The XML-RPC library from PEAR, which we were bundling to make installations easier, was changed so it wouldn’t use that nasty eval() code.

We strongly recommend users to upgrade to 1.6.1 as soon as possible. Download 1.6.1 now.

dotProject integration with Eventum

I was busy last week with meetings in Cupertino, but Adam Donnison wrote me to tell me about the work he did to provide some integration between the two systems. I personally never tried dotProject myself, but for those interested, here is the email from Adam:

It provides the backend for Eventum using Companies and Contacts
within dotProject, and provides a reciprocal view-only listing
of open issues for dotProject users.

It does require the latest CVS version of dotProject (or more
correctly the classes/query.class.php from the latest CVS) to
provide the multi-db query support.

Feedback is very much welcome!

Papercut CVS browser working again

Sorry about that, it took me a while to realize that the Chora installation was set to the old webroot path.

Works fine now.
