Subject Bricolage 1.8.5 Released
Date Sat, 19 Mar 2005 06:52:26 GMT
     The Bricolage development team is pleased to announce the release of
     Bricolage 1.8.5. This maintenance release addresses a number of 
issues in
     Bricolage 1.8.3 and adds a number of improvements (there was no
     announcement for the short-lived 1.8.4 release). The SOAP server in
     particular sees improvements in this release, with improved 
character set
     support; better support for related stories and media using URIs in
     addition to IDs; and as support for top-level element relations. 
Issues
     with the ordering of story elements have also been corrected, as 
well as
     errors when attempting to revert a story or media document or 
template.
     Here are the other highlights of this release:

  Improvements

       * Added Linux startup script contrib/start_scripts/linux. [David]

       * Related story and media elements managed through the SOAP server
       can now use a combination of URI and site ID to identify related
       assets in addition to the existing approach of using story and 
media
       IDs. [David]

       * A list of subelements is now less likely to mysteriously become 
out
       of order and thus lead to strange action-at-a-distance errors. And
       even if they do become out of order, the error message will be 
more
       appropriate ("Warning! State inconsistent" instead of "Can't call
       method 'get_name' on an undefined value"). Reported by Curtis Poe.
       [David]

       * The SOAP media interface now supports creating relationships
       between the media documents elements and other story and media
       documents, just like the SOAP story interface does. [David]

       * The SOAP interface now supports Related stories and media on 
story
       type and media type elements just as in the UI. This involved the
       somewhat hackish necessity for including the "related_story_id" 
and
       "related_media_id" (or "related_story_uri" and 
"related_media_uri")
       attributes in the "elements" XML element, but it does the trick.
       [David]

  Bug Fixes

       * Calls to publish documents via SOAP will no longer fail if the
       published_version attribute is not specified and the document to 
be
       published has never been published before. [David]

       * The Bricolage virtual FTP server will no longer fail to start if
       Template Toolkit is installed but its version number is less than
       2.14. Reported by Adam Rinehart. [David]

       * Stories and Media created or updated via the SOAP interface will
       now associate contributors of the appropriate type, instead of 
"All
       Contributors". [Scott & David]

       * Deleting an element that has a template no longer causes an 
error.
       Thanks to Susan for the spot! [David]

       * Eliminated encoding errors when using the SOAP interface to 
output
       stories, media, or templates with wide characters. Reported by 
Scott
       Lanning. [David]

       * Reverting (stories, media, templates) no longer gives an error.
       Reported by Simon Wilcox, Rachel Murray, and others. [David]

       * Publishing a published version of a document that has a later
       version in workflow will no longer cause that later version to be
       mysteriously removed from workflow. This could be caused by 
passing a
       document looked up using the published_version to list() to
       $burner->publish_another in a template. [David]

       * The SOAP server story and media interfaces now support elements
       that contain both related stories and media, rather than one or 
the
       other. [David]

       * Attempting to preview a story or media document currently 
checked
       out to another user no longer causes an error. Reported by Paul
       Orrock. [David]

       * Custom fields with default values now have their values included
       when they are added to stories and media. Thanks to Clare 
Parkinson
       for the spot! [David]

       * The bric_queued script now requires a username and password and
       will authenticate the user. This user will then be used for 
logging
       events. All events logged when a job is run via the UI are now 
also
       logged by bric_queued. [Mark and David]

       * Preview redirections now use the protocol setting of the preview
       output channel if it's available, and falls back on using 
"http://"
       when it's not, instead of using the hard-coded "http://". Thanks 
to
       Martin Bacovsky for the spot! [David]

       * The has_keyword() method in the Business class (from which the
       story and media classes inherit) now works. Thanks to Clare 
Parkinson
       for the spot! [David]

       * Clicking a link in the left-side navigation after the session 
has
       expired now causes the whole window to show the login form, rather
       than it showing inside the nav frame, which was useless. 
[Marshall]

       * The JavaScript that validates form contents once again works 
with
       htmlArea, provided htmlArea itself is patched. See
       
http://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=1155712&grou
       p_id=69750&atid=525656 for the htmlArea patch. As of this writing,
       you must run the version of htmlArea in CVS. [David & Marshall]

       * The JavaScript that handles the double list manager has been 
vastly
       optimized. It should now be able to better handle large lists, 
such
       as a list of thousands of categories. Reported by Scott. 
[Marshall]

       * Uploading a new image to a media document with a different media
       type than the previous image no longer causes an Imager error.
       [David]
