Subject Bricolage 1.8.6 Released
Date Tue, 19 Jul 2005 16:08:39 GMT
     The Bricolage development team is pleased to announce the  
release of
     Bricolage 1.8.6. This maintenance release addresses numerous minor
     issues in Bricolage 1.8.5 and adds a number of improvements,  
     SOAP, document expiration, and bric_queued fixes. The most  
     changes include:


       * Added JavaScript code to validate that the username in the user
       profile does not have leading or trailing spaces. [David]

       * Events in the event log are now returned (and displayed) in  
       chronological order. [David]

       * The SOAP server now uses a user's template sandbox when  
       previews (such as with bric_soap --to-preview workflow publish).
       Reported by Marshall. [David]

       * Bric::Biz::Workflow now caches calls to allowed_desks().  
This will
       allow desks to render much Faster, since most assets on a desk  
       list the same desks in the "Move to" select lists. [David]

       * When the PUBLISH_RELATED_ASSETS bricolage.conf directive is
       enabled, aliases are now also republished. Only aliases that have
       previously been published will be republished, and only the last
       published version will be republished, rather than any versions
       created since the last publish. Suggested by Serge Sozonoff.  

       * A story or media document published with an expire date earlier
       than the scheduled publish time no longer bothers with the  
       but just expires the story or media document. [David]

       * Media documents without an associated media file will no  
longer be
       displayed in the search results when attempting to relate a media
       document to an element. Reported by Adam Rinehart. [David]

Bug Fixes

       * Form validation and group management now properly work in  
the user
       profile. [David]

       * The SFTP mover now works with bric_queued. [David]

       * Cloned stories now properly set the published_version  
attribute to
       undef rather than the value of the original story, thus  
       the clone from having a published version number greater than its
       current version number. Reported by Nate Perry-Thistle and Joshua
       Edelstein. [David and Nate Perry-Thistle]

       * When a category is added to a story that creates a URI  
       the new category does not remain associated with the story in the
       story profile after the conflict error has been thrown.  
Reported by
       Paul Orrock. [David]

       * Contributor groups created in the contributor profile are no  
       missing from the contributor manager search interface.  
Reported by
       Rachel Murray and Scott. [David]

       * The favicon.ico works again. [David]

       * Stories are now properly expired when the BRIC_QUEUED
       bricolage.conf directive is enabled. Reported by Scott. [David]

       * When a template is checked out of the library and then the  
       is canceled, it is no longer left on the desk it was moved  
into upon
       the checkout, but properly reshelved. Reported by Marshall.  

       * Super Bulk Edit now works for media as well as stories.  
Reported by
       Scott. [David]

       * When a template is moved to a new category, the old version  
of the
       template is undeployed when the new version is deployed to the  
       category. The versions in the sandbox are properly synced, as
