Roundup Issue Tracker 2.2.0

Roundup is a simple-to-use and install issue-tracking system with web, command-line xmlrpc, rest (in the 2.0 development line) and e-mail interfaces. It is based on the winning design from Ka-Ping Yee in the Software Carpentry Track design competition. Downloading the source allows you to start a demo instance in a few minutes to see if it will fill your needs. Unpack the tarball and run: python demo.py

2.2.013 Jul 2022 06:07 minor bugfix: This release is a bugfix and minor feature release. The changes, as usual, include some new features and many bug fixes. You can download it with: pip download roundup then unpack and test/install the tarball. Also:: pip install roundup (preferably in a virtual environment) can be used. Among the notable improvements from the 2.1.0 release are: - Dynamic and static compression of http responses. This improves performance when a front end web server isn't serving compressed assets. - REST interface supports CORS allowing Roundup to be used by third party web sites. Can specify origins allowed to use the REST interface. OpenAPI (SWagger) docs can be added. Error handling/reporting improved. - Dockerfile to build a containerized Roundup instance. A docker-compose configuration to deploy a a mysql based tracker is also supplied. - New full text search methods. SQLite FTS and PostgreSQL full text search are supported. These allow search expressions in addition to simple word based searches. - Secret values in config.ini can be stored in external files. This allows config.ini to be stored in a VCS without exposing secrets. - Translation object added to internal database handle. This allows auditors and extensions to provide efficient translations. - MySQL database creation uses COLLATE utf8_general_ci - Wsgi startup improvements (must be enabled by setting feature flag). - Fix crash when importing legacy Roundup tracker with long integers. - Fix issues with Roundup unable to find supporting files when installed via pip. The file CHANGES.txt has a detailed list of feature additions and bug fixes (57) for each release.
2.1.013 Jul 2021 05:20 minor bugfix: This 20th anniversary edition has been possible due to the help of several contributors. This release is a bugfix and minor feature release, so make sure to read https://www.roundup-tracker.org/docs/upgrading.html to bring your tracker up to date. 2.1.0 builds on the 2.0.0 major release that introduced: * Python 2 and Python 3 support * a new REST interface * updates to jinja2 templates including security improvements The changes, as usual, include some new features and many bug fixes. Note that you should run ``roundup-admin ... migrate`` to update the database schema version. Do this before you use the web, command-line or mail interface and before any users access the tracker. You can download it with: pip download roundup then unpack and test/install the tarball. Among the notable improvements from the 2.0.0 release are: Mysql backend now uses an index to make sure that key values are not duplicated when two roundup processes run in parallel. (Hence the need for ``roundup-admin ... migrate``.) Postgres back end uses a server side cursor. This reduces the memory use of the roundup process on large queries. Fix sorting of multilinks in templating code. Sorting by a link without a value no longer generates a traceback. Sorting now works as documented by the spec. If ``roundup-admin security`` finds an invalid property, it exits with a non-zero status. It can be used as part of a CI/CD pipeline to validate schema security. Security fixes for jQuery, markdown handling. Fixes to markdown handling if using the jinja2 template. Keyword editing in jinja2 template improved. Fix a number of tracebacks. Installation uses setuptools not distutils. Valid class names are documented and enforced. All class names now match `` A-z A-z0-9_ + A-z_ ``. Replace a number of deprecated/missing functions in newer pythons. ...
2.0.013 Jul 2020 13:26 major feature: This release contains some major changes, so make sure to read to bring your tracker up to date. There are special directions for those using the mysql backend. You can download it with: pip download roundup then unpack and test/install the tarball. Among the notable improvements from the 1.6.1 release are: Roundup is multilingual and will run under either Python 3 or Python 2. If you want to use Python 3, you *must read* the Python 3 Support section in the upgrading doc. Depending on the database backend you may have to export/import the tracker. Also you will need to make sure your tracker's Python code is Python 3 compliant. Thanks to Joseph Myers with help from Christof Meerwald. Roundup has a rest API to go along with the existing xmlrpc API. See doc/rest.txt for details on configuring, authorizing access (per role) and making a request. Thanks to Ralf Schlatterbeck who integrated and updated Chau Nguyen's GSOC code. PGP encryption is now done using the gpg module and not the obsolete pyme library. Thanks to Christof Meerwald. Use of mod_python is deprecated. Apache mod_wsgi documentation has been updated along with gunicorn and uwsgi and is the preferred mechanism. jinja templates updated to bootstrap 4.4.1. Templates use autoescape and translation library. Support for messages written in markdown added. SimpleMDE used as markdown editor to provide preview features. Thanks to Christof Meerwald. Fixes to mysql indexing may require a database dump/restore. The file CHANGES.txt has a detailed list of feature additions and bug fixes for each release.
