Neues Release: Collabtive 1.2

Jetzt geht’s weiter: Collabtive wird 1.2!

Die neue Version enthält über 20 Verbesserungen.
Die meisten davon beheben Fehler, bei anderen handelt es sich um neue Funktionen.

Da Collabtive 1.2 zusätzlich auch Sicherheitsverbesserungen enthält, empfehlen wir allen Verwendern älterer Versionen ein Upgrade.

Meilensteine verbessert
Für jeden Meilenstein kann man jetzt ein Startdatum auswählen. So kann man Meilensteine erzeugen, an denen erst zu einem bestimmten Datum in der Zukunft gearbeitet werden soll.
Beim Anlegen eines Meilensteins wird nun automatisch eine mit diesem verbundene Aufgabenliste erstellt.
Außerdem werden die Meilensteine nun nach Fälligkeitsdatum in 3 Gruppen eingeteilt.

Collabtive 1.0 released

Today we are very proud to announce the release of Collabtive 1.0!
Collabtive 1.0 marks the culmination of 5 years of development.

With more than 60 improvements, it is our biggest and best release ever.

With Collabtive 1.0 we have fixed all known bugs, overhauled the database access layer and added lots of new features.

Overhauled database access
In a major under-the-hood change we have ported the database access to PDO (PHP Data Objects).
While desireable for a while, this became really necessary now because the old way of accessing the database will be deprecated in the next version of PHP and removed in a future version.

Collabtive 0.7.6 released

Today we announce the release of Collabtive 0.7.6.

It is the last release in the 0.7 series. It brings some new functionality, as well as bugfixes and security improvements.

Security improvements

  • Removed the openID login code since it has not been functional for quite some time, and was based on a terribly outdated library. This posed a possible security risk due to bugs in openID 1.0
  • Added a check to the installer to prevent it from being used once Collabtive has already been installed
  • Improved filetype checking when uploading the user avatar, to prevent uploading of anything other than pictures

Collabtive 0.7.5 ist da

Ab sofort steht Collabtive 0.7.5. zum Download bereit.

Inhaltlich liegt der Schwerpunkt auf Bugfixes, von denen es über 20 gibt.
Daneben gibt es einige kleine Verbesserungen und auch ein paar neue Funktionen.

Verbesserte Datumsformatierung
Für den Datumswähler gibt es in Collabtive 0.7.5 eine neue Formatierungsmethode, durch welche das verwendete Datumsformat weitaus flexibler wird.
Diese Anpassung kann man unter Verwaltung -> Systemverwaltung vornehmen.
Die unterstützten Datumsformate kann man in der PHP date Dokumentation nachlesen: http://php.net/manual/en/function.date.php

Bessere Performance
Wir haben die asynchronen Abfragen optimiert, die nach neuen Chatnachrichten und Änderungen in der Onlineliste suchen, wenn der eingeloggte Benutzer nicht aktiv ist. Dafür wird ein Zerfallsmechanismus verwendet, der die Anzahl der Ajax-Anfragen an den Server verringert.
Dadurch sollte ingesamt die Datenbankauslastung reduziert werden.

Collabtive 0.7.5 released

Today we announce the availabilty of Collabtive 0.7.5!

Collabtive 0.7.5 is mainly a bugfix and maintenance release. It brings more than 20 Bugfixes and smaller improvements.
It also contains some new functionality.

Improved date formatting
Collabtive 0.7.5 has a newly implemented formatting routine for the datepicker.
This makes much better configurability of date formats possible.
The date format can be configured in Administration -> System Administration
Please see the PHP date docs for a list of supported variables http://php.net/manual/en/function.date.php.

Improved performance
Optimized asynchronous queries to check for new chat messages and onlinelist updates when idle (i.e. when not browsing through collabtive). It uses a decay mechanism now to reduce the number of ajax requests to the server. This should reduce DB utilisation.
