WebIssues 2.0.4 released

Submitted by mimec on 2022-03-09

Version 2.0.4 of WebIssues is a minor feature update. You can find the packages for the WebIssues server and desktop client on the Downloads page.

It is now possible to configure the format of issues added using email inboxes are created. By default, the HTML content and any additional attachments and images are added as separate attachments to the issue. You can change this by setting the email format to EML file; in that case, the entire message is attached to the issue as a single EML file which can be downloaded and opened using any email client.

A few minor bugs were also fixed and some translations were updated.

The desktop application has been updated to version 13 of Electron. Other dependencies have been updated as well.
