WebIssues 1.0.5 released

Version 1.0.5 of WebIssues Server and Client is a bug fix release which fixes the following issues:

  • A crash in the Desktop Client when a view or report has more than 16 columns. It occurred most often when exporting a list of issues to CSV file with all system and user columns, and the issue type had more than 10 attributes.
  • Some issues with truncating text and recognizing links were fixed. URLs starting with file:// and \\ (UNC paths) are now also recognized by the Web Client (though many browsers block access to such URLs, so you may need to user copy & paste).
  • A workaround was added to the Desktop Client to prevent problems caused by incorrectly configured mod_security module on the server. Note that using mod_security with WebIssues is not recommended as it may block legitimate requests.

By the way, work on version 1.1 has recently started. The first beta version will be released in April or May. One of the main features introduced in this version will be issue descriptions. It will also be possible to use simple text formatting in both comments and description. You can read more about it in this blog post.
