Roundup Issue Tracker release 1.4.7

Discussion in 'Python' started by Richard Jones, Mar 13, 2009.

  1. I'm proud to release version 1.4.7 of Roundup.

    1.4.7 is primarily a bugfix release which contains important security
    fixes:

    - a number of security issues were discovered by Daniel Diniz
    - EditCSV and ExportCSV altered to include permission checks
    - HTTP POST required on actions which alter data
    - HTML file uploads served as application/octet-stream
    - Handle Unauthorised in file serving correctly
    - New item action reject creation of new users
    - Item retirement was not being controlled
    - Roundup is now compatible with Python 2.6
    - Improved French and German translations
    - Improve consistency of item sorting in HTML interface
    - Various other small bug fixes, robustification and optimisation

    Though some new features made it in also:

    - Provide a "no selection" option in web interface selection widgets
    - Debug logging now uses the logging module rather than print
    - Allow CGI frontend to serve XMLRPC requests.
    - Added XMLRPC actions, as well as bridging CGI actions to XMLRPC actions.
    - Optimized large file serving via mod_python / sendfile().
    - Support resuming downloads for (large) files.

    If you're upgrading from an older version of Roundup you *must* follow
    the "Software Upgrade" guidelines given in the maintenance documentation.

    Roundup requires python 2.3 or later for correct operation.

    To give Roundup a try, just download (see below), unpack and run::

    About Roundup
    =============

    Roundup is a simple-to-use and -install issue-tracking system with
    command-line, web and e-mail interfaces. It is based on the winning design
    from Ka-Ping Yee in the Software Carpentry "Track" design competition.

    Note: Ping is not responsible for this project. The contact for this
    project is .

    Roundup manages a number of issues (with flexible properties such as
    "description", "priority", and so on) and provides the ability to:

    (a) submit new issues,
    (b) find and edit existing issues, and
    (c) discuss issues with other participants.

    The system will facilitate communication among the participants by managing
    discussions and notifying interested parties when issues are edited. One of
    the major design goals for Roundup that it be simple to get going. Roundup
    is therefore usable "out of the box" with any python 2.3+ installation. It
    doesn't even need to be "installed" to be operational, though a
    disutils-based install script is provided.

    It comes with two issue tracker templates (a classic bug/feature tracker and
    a minimal skeleton) and four database back-ends (anydbm, sqlite, mysql
    and postgresql).

    Sweet.

    I'm working on a small project called TracShell which is a command-line
    front-end to the Trac issue tracker and uses XML-RPC to communicate with
    the server.

    However, as I work with it/hack on it I'm slowly building it into a
    generic front-end to work with any XML-RPC enabled issue tracker.

    I'll definitely look into extending it to work with Roundup in the
    future now that it has XML-RPC support. :)

    Keep up the great work!
