Version 0.9.5 of the WebIssues Client is available for download. It features the possibility of customizing the layout of the UI and improves usability of the application, especially on machines with high resolution screens. A new three-pane layout of the main window was introduced which resembles many e-mail clients and makes it possible to work with folders and issues without opening additional windows. Also the layout of the issue details view can be changed so that issue details are displayed to the left or above the history.
There are many other functional improvements and bug fixes in this release. The Dashboard view has been completely rewritten and has a new look and feel. The default sort order can now be permanently changed for issues of each type. It is possible to select and copy text of properties and attributes in the issue details view. The toolbars have been redesigned so there are more icons for frequently used functions and the appearance of the Windows style was improved. A crash occurring in some cases when deleting an attribute was fixed, handling cookies was improved and a few other bugs were fixed. Also new Czech and Portuguese (Brazil) translations were added and the existing translations were updated.
For a while it's going to be the last release of WebIssues as work on version 1.0 of both the server and the client is now in progress. Like I said I'd like the first alpha preview to be released by the end of this year, but finishing it to a stable final version will definitely take much more time. Thank you for your feedback and help so far and I hope you're going to keep supporting the WebIssues project at this major milestone.
