RT 2.0 Beta 1 released


#1

It gives me great pleasure to announce RT 2.0 Beta 1. This release marks
an important milestone in RT 2.0’s development cycle. All major functionality
expected for RT 2.0 has now been integrated into the codebase. The database
schema is frozen.

Upgrades from Beta 1 to RT 2.0 and any intermediate releases are now
a ‘supported’ procedure. (Well, supported as much as the rest of the
package is :wink:

Some highlights of Beta1:

    * Ports to Oracle 8 and Postgres 7

    * Significant work on the incoming mail gateway

    * Support for merging tickets

    * Simpler, cleaner installation

    * Lots of UI improvements

    * Lots of bug fixes

    * The beginnings of a manual

How to get it:

    Fire up your trusty ftp client and point it at:

    ftp://ftp.fsck.com/pub/rt/devel/rt-1-3-61.tar.gz

    tar xzvf rt-1-3-61.tar.gz

    cd rt-1-3-61

    more README

Reporting bugs:

    If you run into issues, please send bug reports to rt-2.0-bugs@fsck.com
    Try to include:  perl version, database type and version, OS and
    version, sendmail (or replacement) version, any stack trace generated
    and anything else you might find useful.

The future:

    I'm hard at work on RT 2.0 Beta 2  (You can see the todo list at:
    http://fsck.com/rt2/NoAuth/Buglist.html)

    After Beta 2, I'll role a release candidate for 2.0, which I'll let
    percolate for a few weeks.  If we don't find any showstoppers,
    that will become RT 2.0.0.

I’ve attached the source for buglist.html. It’s just a series of queries
against the RT2 database :)On Fri, Mar 23, 2001 at 10:16:30AM -0600, Sean Walberg wrote:

Congrats!

I’ve been meaning to ask how http://fsck.com/rt2/NoAuth/Buglist.html is
generated… I’m trying to put together a series of demos to convince
people to use RT2 for our helpdesk system, and I could see some uses for
something like this.

Thanks,

Sean
