Redmine 0.6.0 provides basic support for plugins. Redmine plugins can rely on Rails engines to add functionalities to the application.

Installing a plugin

1. First, you need to install the Rails engines plugin if you're using a 0.7.x release (make sure to get the Rails 2.0.2 version):

ruby script/plugin install
mv vendor/plugins/rel_2.0.0 vendor/plugins/engines

2. Then, copy your plugin directory into #{RAILS_ROOT}/vendor/plugins.

3. If the plugin requires a migration, run the following command to upgrade your database (make a db backup before):

rake db:migrate_plugins

4. Start Redmine

You should now be able to see the plugin list in 'Admin -> Information' and configure the newly installed plugin (if the plugin requires to be configured).
