Redmine 0.7.0 released (10 comments)

Added by Jean-Philippe Lang about 16 years ago

This final release brings some improvements and fixes over the RC. You can see the details in the Changelog.

Here are a few notes for those how migrate from 0.6:
  • Some permissions were added to edit issue notes and time entries. You can assign them to your existing roles in Admin -> Roles & Permissions
  • Issue 'edit', 'add note' and 'change status' actions are merged in a single action, accessible by clicking on the 'Update' link on the issue details view
  • Bulk edit functionality is now done by right-clicking on a set of selected issues. You can select issues on the issue list by using checkboxes or by clicking on the rows (Ctrl and Shift keys can be used to select multiple issues)
  • HTML tags are now escaped in wiki content (except pre and code tags)

Note that Rails 2.0.2 is now required. The downloadable release is frozen with this version of Rails and thus no particular setup is needed.

If you use svn to get Redmine and don't want to upgrade your Rails' gem, you can freeze Redmine by running the following from your Redmine directory:

rake rails:freeze:edge TAG=rel_2-0-2

Redmine web site migration (6 comments)

Added by Jean-Philippe Lang about 16 years ago

As you may have noticed, has been having some performance issues, causing some requests to time out and users to receive 500 errors.
The old server on which was running will be upgraded in the next few days and has just been moved to a temporary server that should handle the load.

Please, let me know if you experience any problems.

Redmine 0.7.0 RC1 released

Added by Jean-Philippe Lang about 16 years ago

You can see what's new in this release in the changelog.

This RC release is frozen with Rails 2.0.2 and should be very close to the 0.7 final.
Upgrading from 0.6 can be done as usual with a simple database migration. Migration from 0.6 to 0.7 RC1 then to 0.7 will be of course possible.

It can be downloaded in either .tar.gz or .zip format at Rubyforge.

Redmine 0.6.4 bug fix release

Added by Jean-Philippe Lang about 16 years ago

A potential security flaw in LDAP authentication was discovered in Redmine 0.6.3 release.
If you run Redmine 0.6.3 release and use LDAP authentication, you're highly encouraged to migrate to this new release. No database migration is needed.

Those who get Redmine using svn can simply update to the latest revision. The fix was committed in both 0.6-stable branch and trunk.

A few other bugs were fixed in this release. See the Changelog.

TYPO3 Forge runs Redmine (4 comments)

Added by Jean-Philippe Lang over 16 years ago

TYPO3 is a free, feature rich and widely used content management system written in PHP.

The TYPO3 team have chosen Redmine for their new Forge:

For the coordination of the TYPO3 5.0 development efforts, we used to run a Trac installation which hosted our issue tracker, code browser and a wiki. But we were really missing some important features (like being able to set up sub projects) and were looking for alternatives. Fortunately, Martin Herr came across a tool called "Redmine" which looked very promising.

So we created a new website - the TYPO3 Forge. Its purpose is to centralize TYPO3's development projects and provide a home for teams who are in need of an issue tracker, code browser and subversion. Although currently accommodates only TYPO3 5.0 and FLOW3 related projects, we structured it open enough to be ready for the TYPO3 v4 team and other projects.

Redmine performance: Rails 1.2.6 vs Rails 2.0.2

Added by Jean-Philippe Lang over 16 years ago

Here is the result of a quick test comparing Redmine load performance with Rails 1.2.6 and Rails 2.0.2.

This test was done on my workstation using openwebload. Redmine was running on 3 Mongrel instances with Pound as the load balancer. Fragment caching was disabled for this test.
The following shows the maximum Tps1 the application could handle.

Action Rails 1.2.6 + PStore Rails 2.0.2 + PStore Rails 2.0.2 + Cookie store
/ 49.11 55.33 69.62
/issues 10.01 11.28 11.69
/projects/roadmap/demo 6.52 9.08 9.54
/wiki/demo 11.59 12.38 12.41
/projects/activity/demo 16.68 20.25 21.35
/projects/gantt/demo 6.51 8.4 8.68

Of course, these numbers fully depends on your hardware configuration and data but we can clearly see the performance improvements provided by Rails 2.0.

Redmine 0.6.2 released

Added by Jean-Philippe Lang over 16 years ago

This release is mainly to fix Rails 2.0 compatibility issues.
One small functionality (the ability to search custom fields) is added and thus migration is required.

You can checkout the 0.6.2 tag or download the tarball at Rubyforge.
The tarball is freezed with Rails 1.2.6 and now includes action_web_service so you don't have to install it manually.
