RT 4.2.15 Beta 1 Now Available


#1

RT 4.2.15beta1 is now available for testing. The list of changes included with this release is below. We welcome any feedback or bug reports on this beta release.

(For long-time RT testers, this release is the same as what we previously called a release candidate. We have decided to change to beta since that has become a more familiar term for early release software.)

General user UI

  • Show the Ticket’s Subject when modifying the ticket.
  • Re-format RT/Config.pm so the # loc comment parses correctly.

Web Administration

  • Stop wrapping ShowUser in <a> tags to avoid unnecessary nested links.
  • When listing group members, sort by text-only representation of the
    user, not HTML (I#30771)
  • In the group admin page, stop pre-computing ShowUser.
  • In shredder, check for both id and name mismatches when loading objects

Internals

  • Cache OCFVs to improve performance searching for duplicates when adding
    values.
  • Remove unused dependencies on File::Copy and Carp.
  • On Oracle, return the empty string instead of undef for Subject when it
    has no value on a ticket.

Developer

  • Avoid using $id in /Ticket/Display.html so callbacks can modify id in ARGS.

Documentation

  • Mention the RT-Attach-Message: yes header in template docs.
  • Fix incorrect path in portlet documentation.

Internationalization

  • Many changes to refactor sections of RT’s internationalization code.
