Change Log

This is a rough list of changes between released versions. It's a copy of the trunk/ChangeLog from the repository.

To see where Trac is going in future releases, see the Roadmap.

1.1.x Releases

1.1.x releases are development releases leading eventually to Trac 1.2. See them as kind of snapshots of trunk.

No guarantees of feature and API compatibility is made from one 1.1.x release to the next.

1.1.2

The following list contains highlights of the changes:

  • Dropped support for Python 2.5. Trac can no longer be run on Python 2.5 as incompatible changes have been made in the source code (#11600).
  • The new ticket workflow action may_set_owner is similar to set_owner but the owner defaults to the existing ticket owner rather than the current user (#10018).
  • The new option [ticket] optional_fields specifies ticket select fields that are treated as optional (i.e. an empty value is allowed) (#10772).
  • Line number and row highlighting annotations can be specified for WikiProcessor code blocks (#10834).
  • The default handler can be set as a session preference (#11597), and the default value for all users can be set from the Basic Settings admin page (#11519).
  • Attachments can't be added to read-only wiki pages (#11244).
  • Tables on the admin pages have a Select all checkbox in the header (#10994).
  • Submit buttons are disabled if the required items are not selected (#11056).
  • The Admin Permissions page has a Copy Permissions form for copying permissions between users and groups (#11099).
  • The new option [milestone] default_retarget_to determines the default milestone for retargeting tickets when a milestone is deleted or closed, and can be specified from the Milestone admin page (#10010).
  • The retarget select is not shown when closing or deleting a milestone which has no tickets associated with it (#11366).
  • Clear default buttons allow the ticket system default values (e.g. default_milestone, default_version) to be cleared through the corresponding admin pages (#10772, #11300).
  • The TitleIndex macro supports relative path prefixes when used on wiki pages (#11455).
  • CommitTicketUpdater will recognize a ticket reference that includes a trailing #comment:N or #comment:desccription (#11622).
  • The Tickets column of the milestone table on the Milestone admin page contains links to the query page showing all tickets associated with the milestone, grouped by status (#11661).
  • Authz policy can be used to restrict access to the Report List page using the resource id -1 (#11697).
