Which version of Redmine I need to use your plugin?

Added by Gleb Grigoriev over 8 years ago

Hi, plugin authors =)

First of all - thank you for your work.

But could you please make my life a bit easier - just write a version of Redmine which is compatible with your plugin in readme file.
It is really hard for non-ruby guy to understand why plugin is not work - is it wrong migration problem or incorrect version of redmine or bug in plugin or your windows ;-) configuration or smth else.

And the good idea to start doing this from updating notes about your plugin on redmine plugin wiki page.

Thank you!!!

Valid point here. In truth though, I don't know which versions of Redmine my plugins are valid on. I run off of the trunk and sync when necessary, so I suppose I could say "the latest trunk" as unhelpful as that would be. I understand why that makes things difficult, but I also program first and foremost for my own needs.

It'd be nice if plugins could require a certain version of Redmine and, failing that requirement, throw up an error. 2birds1stone.

I try to keep my plugins working on the latest stable release (0.8.x) and trunk. Plugins that require a specific version of Redmine are setup to stop Redmine with a message about a non-supported version.

Try the requires_redmine method (#2162, r2042).

Sweet. I'll include this in my plugins within the week.
