Bricolage 1.6.2

[ #13727 ]

I'm pleased to announce announce the release of Bricolage-Devel 1.6.2. This maintenance release addresses numerous issues discovered since the release of version 1.6.1. Some of the more important changes since 1.6.1 include:

  • New help pages for the destination, server, and action profiles.
  • Fixed issue where new output channels added to a document type element were not always actually saved as a part of that element.
  • Fixed installer to again work with versions of PostgreSQL prior to 7.3.
  • Alert types can once again be deleted from the alert type profile.
  • Users can now only add subelements to a story if they have at least READ permission to those subelements.
  • The media type profile again allows extensions to be added and removed.
  • Perl 5.8.0 or later is now strongly recommended for better Unicode support.
  • Fixed deleting an Alert Type Rule. Also fixed Editing Alert Type Recipients.
  • Clicking "Cancel" in an element no longer saves the changes in that element before going up to the parent element.
  • Added Localization support to widgets that were missing it. Added pt_pt localized images.
  • Documents are no longer distributed to deleted (deactivated) destinations.
  • Eliminated several error log authentication message such as "No cookie found." Thes tended only to confuse users when they were just starting to use Bricolage.
  • Elements added with the same name as an existing, active or inactive element no longer trigger an SQL error to be displayed.
  • Fixed issue where adding an output channel to a document type element removed that output channel from another document type element.

For a complete list of the changes, see the changes file.
