2.1 change list finalized

The end is at sight for 2.1!

I have updated the milestones for 2.1.0 and 2.0.12. I will not be including any bugfixes or changes not listed on the roadmap now, with a few exceptions for 2.1.0.

If all goes well, I will have 2.1.0 and 2.0.12 out this month (2.0.12 may be out before 2.1.0). 2.0.12 is a wrapup release for the 2.0 series and there will not be any further updates after this one.

Still to implement for 2.1.0 is an alert mechanism if you are going to lose the content of your issue report if you try to edit step 2 without saving step 3, and a cleanup of the issue editing dropdowns so that upon closing a submenu, the root menu does not close (one example of the incorrect behaviour is saving status).

In addition, we will be updating the documentation on the site to detail more common problems that users seem to be experiencing, and to detail changes in the 2.1 release. We also hope to have a copy of the help for The Bug Genie 2 online in all supported languages.

Keep an eye on the homepage for the releases soon!

Rolling on to 2.1

Another release candidate for The Bug Genie 2.1 has just been released, which should hopefully fix the majority of the upgrade bugs that you have been having.

2.1 is not yet fully complete, as there is still some tidying up to take care of – as well as any other bug reports that people like you find. The main missing component is to further improve the progress tracking, so only 1 save button is necessary to make your changes. Hopefully the upgrade script is fairly stable and resilliant now – so hopefully there won’t be any more fixes to make; but if there are we will hopefully squash those issues now so the final release is rock solid.

RC2 is much more stable compared to RC1, with many issues and bugs fixes, and includes all the fixes in the 2.0.11 release. The final is due out really soon – after which the focus will be on The Bug Genie 3, though the 2.1 branch will continue to be maintained (along with 1 final 2.0 release).
