Version 0.4.0 now available


Based on  Trac 0.11.7 this release adds two notable features.

  • Predicted completion dates for milestones of the same priority are now determined based on their relative weighting (defaulted to the same). This means that milestones of the same priority are considered to run in parallel with the observed points per period value spread across the milestones based on their relative weights. See also Milestone Priority and Relative Weight
  • It is now possible specify the number and weights of previous iterations that should be considered when determining the observed points per iteration. The default is for the current and previous four iterations to be used with each treated as having an equal weight. In other words the average is taken. This can be added to the trac.ini file as:
    historical_iteration_weights = 1 1 1 1 1
    The number of weights specified is the number of iterations considered and the weights can be any values and may be floats. See also Determining how past Iterations are used to Calculate Points Per Iteration

To Upgrade Your Installation

1. Upgrade the Agile-Trac plugin

easy_install -U

2. Update the patch

You must also use svn to update your agile-trac patch.

Note: The location of your  Trac install will depend on the version number, for example you might have  Trac 0.11 or a newer version like  Trac 0.11.1.


This will depend on your installation, for example with  Trac 0.11, this may work.

cd C:\Python25\Lib\site-packages\Trac-0.11-py2.5.egg


Do these commands as a user of sufficient privileges, for example as root.

This will depend on your distribution. For example in Debian Testing for  Trac 0.11 you might type:

cd /usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/Trac-0.11-py2.5.egg/

Now run svn update from the current location, for example,

svn update

3. Restart you web server

For example if you are using apache you might need to execute,

apache2ctl graceful

4. Upgrade your trac environment

Since this release includes a schema change you will need to run,

trac-admin upgrade /path/to/your/trac/project

so that the schema changes required can be applied.
