WebIssues Changelog

New in version 1.1.3

July 20th, 2015
  • The latest minor release of WebIssues adds the possibility to archive and unarchive existing projects. When a project is archived, it is completely hidden from the projects tree and all folders and issues stored in it become inaccessible. However, unlike deleted projects, archived projects can be easily restored when necessary. This feature is especially useful when you have many projects and some of them are obsolete, but you don't want to lose any information in case it becomes necessary to recover it.
  • This release also fixes a potential security vulnerability in the WebIssues Web Client which makes it possible to inject JavaScript code into the page using specially crafted drop down list items. Although there is no evidence that this vulnerability can be exploited in any way by users who don't already have full administration rights to the WebIssues system, it is recommended to update existing installations to the latest version.

New in version 1.1.1 (December 6th, 2013)

  • This is a bugfix only release that fixes a few problems with the Desktop Client, including: creating public alerts, displaying project descriptions, and small font size in issue details and the comment and description editor.

New in version 1.1 Beta 1 (May 22nd, 2013)

  • The most imporant feature introduced in this version is the support for issue descriptions. They are similar to comments, but they are displayed in a distinctive way in the issue details and they can be entered directly when creating an issue. When updating from version 1.0, the first comment is automatically converted to a description. Also projects can now have a description, which can be edited by the administrators and viewed by all users when the project is selected in the tree.
  • Both comments and descriptions can now use a new format of text with simple markup. It allows changing the font style, for example bold or italic, and creating simple formatting, for example bullet lists, quotations and code blocks with optional syntax highlighting. A toolbar above the text fields can assist in entering the correct markup.
