Bricolage 1.6.8

[ #16073 ]

I'm pleased to announce the release of Bricolage 1.6.8. This maintenance release addresses a few issues discovered since the release of version 1.6.7. Here is the complate list of chnages for this release:

  • Custom select fields now correctly pay attention to the size attribute. Reported by Dave Rolsky. [David]
  • The element type manager now displays "Subelement" instead of "Story" for subelement element types. Suggested by Dave Rolsky. [David]
  • Updated to work with PostgreSQL 7.4. [David]
  • Improved error message in Bric::Util::Trans::SFTP. [David]
  • It's possible to create new stories again without running into errors saying that a URI is not unique because the cover date and slug were accidentally excluded from the URI. [David]
  • Mason story templates now inherit from all category templates, thus enabling the access of <%attr>s and calling of <%method>s in category templates from story templates. [David]
  • Permission to edit element fields is now based on the permissions granted to edit the elements they belong to. This means that users other Global Admin group members can now edit fields. [David]
  • Dates are no longer editable if a user doesn't have permission to edit them. [David]
  • Users without EDIT access to an element no longer see a link to Edit fields of that element, but a link to View them, instead. They will also no longer see an "Add Subelements" button. [David]
  • Fixed bug that triggered an invalid error message when a story URI is non-unique. Reported by Kevin Elliott. [David]
  • Assets with the same IDs but in different classes (media vs. stories vs. templates) no longer prevent each other from being added to a desk that can contain different classes of assets. Thanks to Scott for the spot and doing the research that lead to the replication of the problem. [David]
