Bricolage 1.6.5 Released

[ #14640 ]

I'm pleased to announce announce the release of Bricolage 1.6.5. This maintenance release addresses a number issues discovered since the release of version 1.6.4. Some of the more important changes include:

  • Previewing stories with related media that have no associated file no longer causes an error.
  • Switched to using DBI->connect_cached() from using our own database connection caching. This change does bump up the minimum required version of DBI to 1.18, though the latest version is always recommended. It's also the right thing to do.
  • Fixed issue that could cause Bric::Util::DBI to create inconsistent transaction states.
  • Passing an undef via the workflow__id parameters to the list() method of Story, Media, or Template really does again cause Bricolage to correctly return only those assets that are not in workflow. It wasn't as fixed in 1.6.3 as I had thought.
  • Vastly improved the speed of the query that lists events, and added an index to help it along, as well.
  • The FTP mover now properly deletes files rather than erroring out.
  • Users without EDIT access to the start desk in a workflow can no longer create assets in that workflow. Nor can they check out assets from the library, as there's no start desk for them to check them in to. But they can still check them out from other desks that they have EDIT access to.
  • Time zone issues have been fixed to be more portable. Some platforms that experienced Bricolage unexpectedly shifting cover dates and other dates and times by several hours should no longer see this problem.
  • Adding a new element type with the same name as an existing or deleted element type no longer causes an SQL error.

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