1.0 | 1.2?

Release Notes for Trac development releases 1.1.x

1.1.x releases are "stable" and tested snapshots of trunk. They can be seen as sub-milestones on the road towards 1.2.

As opposed to maintenance releases, we offer no guarantees on feature and API compatibility from one 1.1.x release to the next.

However, by following 1.1.x you get a chance to use new features earlier, and therefore be able to contribute feedback when things are still in flux. It's also less risky than just getting the latest trunk, as we won't cut a 1.1.x release in the middle of a series of changes (though we had and still intend to have a good record of keeping things always working on trunk).

If you're a plugin developer, be sure to also check the ApiChanges/1.1 page.

#11699

The usernames in the default workflow hints are wrapped in spans with class trac-author, trac-author-anonymous or trac-author-none.

These changes allow the new state to be renamed, and support transitions other than <none>new (e.g. <none>assigned can be a workflow transition).

#6573

Wiki page version comments in change history can now be edited. (Requires WIKI_ADMIN permission.)

#10207

If additional permission policies are enabled, particular care should be given to the order of the policies when upgrading.

#11300

The default_milestone and default_version can be set to empty using the Clear default buttons on the corresponding Ticket System admin panels.

#11336

#11532

#11565

Reduced code duplication in the about.html and error.html templates.

#11587

The GitConnector and SubversionConnector are required components when a repository of their type is configured. When required, the Component cannot be disabled from the plugin admin page and its version is displayed on the About and Error pages. With these changes the behavior of the repository connectors matches that of database connectors.

#11597

The default_handler can be set as a session preference.

#11600

Minimum required Python version is 2.6.

#11610

Git and Mercurial raise a TracError rather than showing a traceback when attempting to view added and deleted files (#9775).

  • Fine-grained permissions can be used to grant the REPORT_CREATE permission for the report realm (using [report:*] in the authz file).
#10010

The option [milestone] default_retarget_to determines the default milestone to which tickets are retargeted when closing or deleting a milestone. The option can be set from the Milestone Admin page.

#11145

Author names are decorated in a span with class trac-author.

#11126

All stylesheets are added using add_stylesheet rather than using a link element in the template.

#10860

File size is pretty-printed when the file can't be previewed or uploaded due to exceeding a size limit.

Code Name

The 0.11 release was dubbed "Genshi" and 0.12 "Babel", after the names of the Python packages that became closely associated to these Trac versions.

With Trac 1.0, no new strong dependency was added, so we went back to our age long tradition of picking a zombie related code name by naming it "Cell", following the 0.6 "Solanum", 0.7, "Fulci", 0.8 "Qualia", 0.9 "Vodun",0.10 "Zengia" releases :-)

So let's find a new cool name for 1.2

  • "Datura" — itamarost
  • "Austen" — yaelg
  • "Algol" — trbs
  • "Stubbs" — cm
  • "☣" — cboos
  • "Hermes" (or some other messenger deity)— psuter

Highlights

Could be anything, like:

… or even something completely different ;-)
