Release Notes: A markup language enables users to format content, for instance in item reports. Numerous anti-spam tools are now available: DNSbl, SpamAssassin, and the ability for users to flag content as spam. The item page layout has been reorganized so that editing the item attributes or inserting a comment no longer require scrolling of the window. The various sections are folded (and can be unfolded by a simple click) to provide a more condensed layout. It is possible to create squads to group small teams of members that must be assigned items together.
Release Notes: This release brings many interface improvements and bugfixes. The top menu now uses drop-down sub-menus, allowing users to jump from any page to another with a single click. The "display criteria" boxes are now minimized by default to give more room to the results.
Release Notes: This release fixes several bugs, including a cross site scripting bug (XSS, not critical) that was introduced in the 1.3 release.
Release Notes: A documentation manager (called cookbook) and data export as XML file were added. Many bugfixes and cosmetics changes were made. Development was moved from CVS to SVN.
Release Notes: Many bugs and packaging and cosmetic issues were fixed. It is now possible to restrict item comment posting (in addition to the restriction of item posting) depending on the authentication level of users. It is now possible to use as criteria, while browsing items, the fact that an item was, or wasn't, modified since a specific date. New color themes have been added.
