CodingTeam 0.9.3 is together a bug fixes release and a major feature enhancements one as it introduces four great new features.</p><br /> <br /> <p>First of all, CodingTeam now opens to several <acronym title="Source Code Management">SCM</acronym> and supports Mercurial as well as Subversion. From now on, you can create Mercurial repositories inside CodingTeam and they are fully handled from automatic creation to browsing. We are open to all remarks or bug reports on our first implementation of a decentralized version control system.</p><br /> <br /> <p>The second key feature is the evolution of the dashboard. It's no longer just a tool to gather all the timelines of your projects, although you can always do that. It's now a tool to administer all your projects! It comes with a complete administration panel allowing you to do in just one place all an administrator can do on his project:</p><br /> <ul> <li>managing versions and milestones</li> <li>managing access rights</li> <li>enabling or disabling features</li> <li>uploading files in a project briefcase</li> <li>managing downloads</li> <li>managing internationalization</li> <li>managing news</li> <li>managing chatrooms</li> <li>managing screenshots</li> <li>editing or deleting the project</li> </ul> <br /> <p>That means that all these administration tasks are now all grouped in only one place, facilitating their usage. It comes with the support for advanced access rights (you can now finely configure the rights granted to someone), for features management (you can enable or disable a feature that you don't want to use for the project) and for project briefcase (you can upload files to be linked elsewhere, like in the wiki documentation).</p><br /> <br /> <p>Another important new feature is the private messaging system! Users can now communicate between them through the forge. It's simple, you can send a private message to someone in just one click. Private messages are displayed in threads and threads that contain new messages are shown ahead. It's a fast and easy to use tool to improve communication between users.</p><br /> <br /> <p>Finally, the last major feature enhancement for this new release is the notification system. It can send notifications to user when they receive private messages, when there are activites on a bug in which they are involved or on a forum topic in which they have participated. It works both via e-mails and <acronym title="eXtensible Messaging and Presence Protocol">XMPP</acronym>. Thus CodingTeam reinforces its position as the only software forge to integrate a lot of functionnalities of XMPP (chatrooms, presence, authentification and now, notifications).</p><br /> <br /> <p>Furthermore, we can pick out little improvements like the new pagination system, the fact that CodingTeam is now PHP 5.3.x ready and the bug tracker evolutions (issues don't have anymore to rely on a version and 3 new filters have been added: priority, title and content).</p><br /> <br /> <p>We can also speak about the translation system, which was integrated in the previous release. A few bug fixes and improvements have been made on it, as it was planned. Now, translaters can use the fast submission tool (it allows them to translate a lot of strings on only one page).</p><br /> <br /> <p>And, last but not least, a total of more than 25 bugs have been fixed that we can sum up:</p><br /> <ul> <li>global administrators are now warned when a project is added to the queue</li> <li>project admins are now warned when their project is validated or deleted</li> <li>private project's SCM repositories are now unattainable for anonymous users</li> <li>ability to download a patch from a diff view in the code browser</li> <li>ability to answer on a closed (and tagged as resolved) bug report</li> <li>fixed downloads problems</li> </ul> <br /> <p>You can download <a href="">CodingTeam 0.9.3 here</a>. If you were using CodingTeam 0.9.2, you have to read and execute <em>scripts/miscellaneous/upgrade092-093.php</em> to update your database. You might also take a look at <a href="">our documentation</a>.</p><br /> <br /> <p>And to celebrate this new release, has now a very new appearance with a special CSS, thus it will be easy to distinguish from other CodingTeam instances at a glance. Enjoy!</p> CodingTeam 0.9.2 released Sat, 09 Jan 2010 23:30:30 +0100 xbright <p>A few months after the 0.9.1, the new version of CodingTeam is released! This new release comes with bugfixes and four main new features.</p><br /> <br /> <p>CodingTeam 0.9.2 reintroduces the gettext-based online translation system. It was already in our forge up to the 0.42 but this had disappeared with the full-rewrite of the 0.9. Now, you can easily translate your software online with CodingTeam! The process is simple: you upload a gettext translation model (a <em>.pot</em> file) and then users can translate all your strings in their language. If you already have a gettext translation file (a <em>.po</em>), you can upload it to automatically translate all the strings in the database. When you want to get the translated strings in order to release your software, just export the translation file for all available languages and it's done! And by the way, to prepare the next release, you will import your new <em>.pot</em> file, which will cause the automatical update of your strings database (deleted strings will be deactivated).</p><br /> <br /> <p>This feature is very new and we release it early to get feebacks on this implementation, in order to make it better and better with the time. But here it is, you can now translate your softwares with CodingTeam!</p><br /> <br /> <p>An another main new feature of this 0.9.2 release is the advanced user-rights management by projects. Project's admins can now grant powers or not to their coworkers. For instance, you can now make a moderator for your forums that cannot use Subversion. You can also disable the rights for the others project's admins to edit or delete the project. All you could imagine by the past can easily be done, now!</p><br /> <br /> <p>The third important improvement in this new release is the ability to filter bugs on a multiplicity of criterias. Bugs can now be filtred on their status, type, assigning, version and/or milestone.</p><br /> <br /> <p>And, last but not least, the fourth main feature is the support for multiples templates themes. CodingTeam now comes with two CSS, the default one and a simple one that just aims to show you an exemple of the CodingTeam CSS creation.</p><br /> <br /> <p>Besides that, a lot of bugfixes have been done and we can highlight a few little improvements:</p><br /> <ul> <li>if need-validate is enabled, when an admin adds a project, he doesn't have anymore to validate his new project</li> <li>when a project's admin edits the bug's properties, he doesn't have anymore to inevitably assign it to someone</li> <li>if the default versions ordering doesn't fit to your needs, you can set a position identifier to easily choose the order</li> <li>ability to prevent anonymous users to post anything on the forge</li> <li>spam filter (based on the content)</li> <li>a personal dashboard: timeline for all your projects</li> </ul> <br /> <p>You can download <a href="">CodingTeam 0.9.2 here</a>. If you were using CodingTeam 0.9.1, you have to read and execute <em>scripts/miscellaneous/upgrade091-092.php</em> to update your database.</p><br /> <br /> <p>And to celebrate this new release, introduces the CodingTeam Blog! <a href="">Click here to read our blog</a>.</p> CodingTeam 0.9.1 released Wed, 24 Jun 2009 16:00:20 +0200 xbright <p>Only 6 months after the 0.9, CodingTeam 0.9.1 is now released!</p><br /> <br /> <p>A lot of exciting new features come with this new version of the CodingTeam software-forge. <a href="project/codingteam/doc/WhatIsCodingTeam">CodingTeam</a> is a forge used by <a href="project/codingteam/forum/show/116">more than 1.000</a> users on <a href=""></a> and by a few enterprises.</p><br /> <br /> <p>CodingTeam 0.9.1 introduces:</p><br /> <ul> <li>basic template system based on the alternative PHP syntax</li> <li>ability to make a project private</li> <li>advanced commit hooks: it can now automatically close a bug if your commit message contains something like "fixes #id" or "fixed #id"</li> <li>new timeline: no more ATOM agregator but data is now taken from the database in a given interval and can be configured very simply on the user-side</li> <li>ability for anonymous to report a bug or add a comment to a bug</li> <li>notion of milestone in addition to the affected version: roadmap is now generated with the milestone field</li> <li>user's briefcases: allow users to upload files for their project (eg: pictures or PDFs for wiki pages…)</li> <li>ability to make the forge non-public (require authentification)</li> <li>new Subversion code browser: faster and more efficient (can show an image, show a really beautiful diff…)</li> </ul> <br /> <p>Also, this update comes with many fixed bugs and little improvements.</p><br /> <br /> <p>Some work has been done on sessions too. For example, developers can now extend the BaseSession class in order to allow different authentification methods inside CodingTeam. This new feature has been used to implement an experimental support of the <a href="">XEP-0070</a> (<em>Verifying HTTP Requests via XMPP</em>, a sort of XMPP authentification).<br />In addition to this, CodingTeam 0.9.1 introduce a security fix that try to prevent session hijacking.</p><br /> <br /> <p>Still on the developer-side, the error handler class has been greately improved. It can show a full traceback (debug and source code). It can handle all errors (from CT errors to PHP fatal errors). And it can also log all errors into a file (the log levelling is configurable).</p><br /> <br /> <p>Administrators will see that their administration interface has been improved too. They can now clear the whole cache just by clicking on a button. And they can edit all data (licences, languages, categories and available translations) with a really simple form.</p><br /> <br /> <p>In order to celebrate this new version, <a href=""></a> has been upgraded!
