Tasks Pro™ 1.7.1rc1 and Tasks™ 2.7.1rc1

I’ve posted release candidates of Tasks Pro™ and Tasks™, both are bug fix releases addressing issues found in the 1.7 and 2.7 releases respectively.

I’m quite pleased that the .7 releases were very solid, not requiring any immediate .1 follow-up releases, however there are a number of little issues that have been fixed in the new versions.

Normally I push the .1 releases out without a release candidate, but an extra week or two of testing is always a good idea, especially when I’ve updated a number of packages.

Changes/fixes in this release:

  • Only send one e-mail to a user per task update (sometimes could send an “updated” and “completed” e-mail)
  • Change URL in e-mails to kingdesign.net (password e-mails)
  • When no groups exist in the system, the mailboxes screen shouldn’t show the groups area
  • When only 1 user in the system, the created by/assigned to in a mailbox shouldn’t be editable
  • Login logo links to kingdesign.net instead of taskspro.com
  • (none) added to the list of available search items for tags
  • Tag auto-complete is disabled in IE6 due to compatibility issues
  • Dynamically create password fields when user clicks “change password” to avoid browser autocomplete bugs
  • Str to lower the y/m/d date format letters to avoid data input issues
  • Favorites should leave the list if not sticky and 100% complete
  • Function to trim strings is multi-byte aware (if supported by your PHP install)
  • Calendar text in the pop-up calendar is too light w/ dark theme
  • User Permission for editing tasks also applies to editing tags
  • Fixed JS error that would occur when a non-english language was used and tagging was disabled
  • Support for partial hour time differences, 6.5 hours for example
  • Fixed an issue with the build script to make sure proper docs are included in Tasks Pro
  • Dates range searches should all go back to historical date years
  • Typo caused some combinations of status searches to fail
  • Updated ADOdb to version 4.9.4
  • Updated YUI to version 2.2.2
  • Updated PHPiCalendar to version 2.23
  • Disabled some PHP Tag Engine debugging output code
  • Add check for the PHP readfile function and not use it if it is not available

As always, these are available for download on the King Design download page.

If you have any problems, please let me know in the forums or via the support form. Thanks!
