Bricolage 1.6.6 Released

[ #15056 ]

I'm pleased to announce the release of Bricolage 1.6.6. This maintenance release addresses a number issues discovered since the release of version 1.6.5. Some of the more important changes include:

  • Added README.Solaris.
  • When an asset is published or deployed directly from the asset profile, it is now properly removed from the publish or deploy desk.
  • Templates now display their output channel associations instead of their element associations on desks. This seems to be more useful, since the element association is usually obvious from the name.
  • The category URI is now displayed for assets on desks, rather than the name. This is consistent with the display of the category elsewhere.
  • Elements to which no subelements can be added will no longer display an empty select list and "Add Element" button.
  • Bug fix when deploying to multiple output channels. If the output channel IDs matched each other partly, it could cause a file to be removed after it just had been uploaded.
  • Users with CREATE access to a start desk can once again create stories on that desk even when they don't have CREATE access to "All Stories."
  • Each upgrade script is now run within the confines of a single database transaction. If any database changes within an upgrade script encounter an error, all of the changes in that script will be rolled back.
  • An upgrade script failure will now cause "make upgrade" to halt installation so that any issues are immediately identified and correctable.

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