The third patch for WebIssues 1.0 was released with the following improvements, additions and bug fixes:
Note: Development of the user registration module was kindly sponsored by Tecnoarea. Thanks a lot!
The second patch release of WebIssues 1.0 is now available for both the server and client packages. Here's a summary of most important changes and improvements made in this release:
Version 1.0.1 of the WebIssues Server and Desktop Client provides a few minor usability improvements. The following changes and new features were implemented in this release:
Version 1.0 of WebIssues is officially released. All users of older versions are advised to update their server and the client applications. WebIssues now includes a built-in Web Client, which allows accessing the system from any location using a web browser. The mechanism of views, tracking state of issues, alerts and email notifications was completely redesigned. WebIssues has better localization support and extended types of attributes, e.g. multi-select drop down attributes. It's possible to move and delete issues and to edit and delete existing comments and attachments. Also a completely rewritten WebIssues Manual is available.
It's hard to list all functional and usability improvements included in this release. You can read more about the available features, log in to the online demo to test the Web Client, and download the latest version. Like always, suggestions, questions and bug reports are welcome.
Finally, after over 2.5 years of development, I'm proud to announce the first Release Candidate version of WebIssues 1.0. You can download it from the Development page, but very soon it will become the official stable version. At this moment I'm planning no more changes, except for fixing any potential bugs found during the last round of testing. Please report any problems you find using the Forums.
I would like to thank everyone, without whom this great undertaking would be impossible: Francine, who helped me a lot with the Web Client and provided many great ideas; Patrick and Filipe and all other contributors and translators; my wife for finding bugs, suggesting improvements, and supporting me in many other ways; finally the entire community of users and beta testers, for providing feedback, ideas and criticism. I had a great time working on this project. Obviously, it's only version 1.0 and there's still a lot to be done. However, with 1,500 monthly downloads, many unique features, and being completely open source, I'm sure that WebIssues starts becoming a significant project.
