In addition to the Release of RT 5 we’re excited to announce the general availability of RTIR 5.0. This release introduces a major update of the web UI, following the RT update to the popular open source Bootstrap front-end toolkit. This brings to RTIR (and RT) a modern, responsive layout, keeping all of the familiar features of RTIR.
There were many, many changes throughout RTIR to support these major new features. In addition to the theme updates, RTIR has a new feed reader, the search and charting interface now uses RT’s core search system, and default custom field values now use RT’s core default values feature. Check out our blog to read more about this release and the new features that are available.
You can get the new version here:
As with previous versions of RTIR, it’s import to install with a matching version of RT. The RTIR 5.0 series is compatible with the RT 5.0 series. If you have used past versions of RTIR, you’ll know that in the past the version numbers were independent, which could lead to some confusion. With this new release, the major series version numbers between RTIR and RT are the same and we hope this makes it easier to find compatible versions.
