3.2 beta release

with 15 comments

Just a little headsup that we are closing in on the first 3.2 beta version. Right now we’re finishing up the upgrade functionality (upgrades can be performed either from 3.0.x or 3.1.x), and adding a bit more spit and polish. We will be fixing a lot of smaller bugs as soon as the final polishing is done for the newest features, and then we’re ready to release.

When we release the 3.2 beta, anything goes. Please report any and all issues you find, whether it is upgrade issues, usage issues, installation issues, or anything else that you can trigger. Do your best – break it, and break it hard.

Just to add even more fun into the mix, we’re also adding experimental support for microsoft sql server in the 3.2 beta. If any of you are running with an ms sql server and want to give us a hand testing it out, please file issues against this as soon as you can.

Oh yeah, you probably want a date, too. October 15th.

Update: A lot of effort was made, trying to finish up the caspar framework refactoring in time for the beta release, but unfortunately it is not possible. Because of this, the beta release is being pushed back two weeks, to October 29th. Thanks for your patience.

  1. I have no interest in registering as a user on yet another place, so i post this here.

    Feature request: changing anything in/of a issue, should require the comment field to be set. This ensures correct usage. In my view, this would result in the Change-State and Add-Comment fields to be joined under one “Submit” button in the GUI.

    I’ve worked with an in-house developed issue-tracker that did this, and it was the best i ever used, and still not rivaled.

    • Thanks for taking the time to leave your comments anyway (you’ll probably be happy to learn that the next version of thebuggenie comes with openid support with built-in support for wordpress authentication).

      I like your suggestion, but that should be possible to do with the current workflow editor – forcing a comment is one of the available workflow items. I don’t think it’s a good idea to make the suggested behaviour the default behaviour, but it is definately doable.

  4. Whooops… looks like TBG 3.2 is also not released on 29/10/2011. Any updates…?

  5. Sorry, we did release (tag) it, and it can be downloaded from – we just haven’t had the time to create release announcements and update the website for it yet 🙂

  6. I cannot find it there. But ok, I think I will wait until I find a package to download…

  7. Thank you. I downloaded it now. It is a great tracker! One last question for now: Will I be able to use the database I create with the 3.2 beta when the 3.2 final is released?

    • Glad you like it.

      We have no plans to support beta -> beta or beta -> stable upgrades, as we simply don’t have the time capacity to. Our beta releases are for testing purposes only.

  8. Thanks, it looks really nice. I could already use many new features for our production workflow already, so I’m wondering, when do you expect to release 3.2 final, or at least some Release Candidate that will have a RC -> Stable upgrade support?

    • We will have a new beta release within a week or two, containing fixes for most reported issues. We hope to release an RC (or final) before (or on) 12th Dec.

  9. Hi,

    please take a look at our performance analyze, that we did for TBG 3.2beta1 during last days. We have summed up few drawbacks and suggested solutions.

  10. whoops – Installer TBG 32 beta2 – after setting up database (step 3 or so):

    Fatal error: Class ‘TBGProjectRole’ not found in D:\_projects\buggenie32beta2\core\classes\TBGDatatype.class.php on line 85
