RTIR 3.0.2rc1 available for testing

RTIR 3.0.2rc1 contains a number of bug fixes and performance
enhancements since 3.0.1 as well as a few constituency regressions
dating back into 2.6. If you used add_constituency on 2.6 or 3.0 to set
up your constituencies, you will want to review UPGRADING-3.0 to ensure
your custom field permissions are correct.

If you are testing 3.0.2rc1, you may consider also testing RT 4.0.20rc1
which contains a number of bugfixes and enables RTIR to make use of an
additional performance enhancement cache.

Bugs

  • Cache Constituency metaqueues to avoid performance penalty on every
    HasRight check. This is particularly evident in the REST or other
    large ticket list outputs.
  • When RTIR 3.0 moved to using the standard RT Quick Search portlets, it
    did not update filter callbacks appropriately, so Constituency
    metaqueues were visible in both the RT and RTIR homepages. They are
    now filtered and filtered at the database level.
  • RTIR 2.6 and 3.0 shipped an add_constituency script that did not
    properly grant rights on core RTIR custom fields during constituency
    configuration. It grants rights slightly broader than the 2.4
    version, but this is probably more correct, and easily corrected in
    the admin UI.
  • Recognize that TLDs can be longer than 3 characters when looking for
    email addresses.
  • Clean up a log warning generated when replying to Incidents.

Features

  • When using RT 4.0.20 or newer, the Search box in the upper righthand
    corner will properly indicate that you are searching Incidents, not all
    Tickets.
  • When using RT 4.0.20 or newer, RTIR can cache the results of generating
    MakeClicky links on tickets for 6 hours. Because of the number of
    types of links that RTIR generates, and the likelihood that there are
    many IP addresses or URLs which are linkified, this can be a large
    performance gain on long or frequently loaded tickets.
