Version 0.2.0 now available

NEW RELEASE - 0.2.0

This is an important release with several noteworthy points.

  • we've created a release branch starting with 0.2.0 to allow more aggressive changes to be made on the development branch. For those who don't mind the odd breakage then you are free to install and update from the development branch. Details for the release branch can be found on the installation page. Branch details are summarised at the end of this post.
  • we've moved to a single unified patch for all 0.11.x trac installs. This will significantly reduce the overhead of making updates. We held off doing this as there were some version specific issues that are now all resolved. In essence the unified patch will be against the latest trac release on the 0.11 branch.
  • we've fixed quite a few annoyances, some of which were considered critical. These are listed below. Some great community support has made these fixes possible.
  • we've ironed out database back-end issues so that we work with both Sqlite and Postgresql (including 8.3). If you have an Sqlite install and would like to migrate to Postgresql then you can read more on the Migration from Sqlite to Postgresql page.
  • we've added some improved documentation for the configuration options currently supported by Agile-Trac.
