Version 3 alpha 4 getting ready for release

with 2 comments

Now that everyone has finished upgrading their ubuntu installations to 10.10, people finally have time to try out and test a new v3 alpha. Version 3 alpha 4 will be released this friday with a whole month worth of changes and updates, and some of the goodies include:

  • Issue votes
    You can now add “Votes” as a visible field to any issue type. This will add a nice little vote box in the top right issue corner, and lets you use the new vote search result list – this is also used in the new predefined “Top voted” search.
  • Project editing popup
    Project configuration is now available from anywhere as a popup. This also includes editing releases and edition / component details.
  • User cards and user details
    Users now have a user”card” which is available from the user popup menu. Username presentation has also been enhanced to not stand out as much, but blend nicely in with the rest of the system.
  • Friends!
    What would The Bug Genie be without its always-existing friends-system? Alpha 4 sees the (re-)introduction of friends, with links to add and remove friends from any user popup, as well as the friends list on the user dashboard.
  • Better roadmap
    We’ve updated the roadmap page for the project to behave more intelligently – it will still show all milestones, but only milestones currently in progress will be expanded by default. Included is also a new “refresh milestone details” link which not only updates milestone details directly on the page, but can also be used to update milestone details such as whether it is closed/reached, when this goes out of sync.
  • More custom fields
    Team member lsproc has been busy adding support for more custom fields, and his work will be included in alpha 4.
  • Better customization
    Also on lsproc‘s list was adding support for custom favicons (you know, the little icon next to the url in the address bar) and site logo, which will be available in alpha 4.

These are only the current highlights of alpha 4. A separate feature for importing issues from version 2 has been dropped in favour of a more documented SQL approach. This is being documented in the wiki, and can be found in the tbg3:import wiki article.

  2. Since I’m following your work very closely, I already know what to expect from this alpha, but those, who don’t play around with SVN, will have a bunch of great new features to check out. I can only agree – keep up the great work! 🙂
