Today the second development version of WebIssues 1.1 was released. It introduces two entirely new features which allow better integration between WebIssues and email:
- Email inbox receives emails from selected email account and automatically creates issues based on these emails, and creates comments and attachments for existing issues.
- Subscriptions make it possible to watch individual, selected issues for change. An email notification is sent to subscribers when someone modifies the issue in any way, for example by editing its attributes, modifying its description, adding a comment or attachment.
The email inbox and subscriptions can be used together, which makes it possible to set up two way email communication with the WebIssues system. It's even possible for external users, who don't have a WebIssues account, to communicate with the WebIssues system in this way.
You can download the newest server and client packages for testing from the Development version page.
