Maintenance periods and software updates

In late July 2013 we introduced maintenance periods for Bugify1)For those who purchased before July 2013 you may have noticed that the “Maintenance Expires” date in Settings – Licensing says N/A – this means maintenance periods do not apply to you and you will continue to receive updates. and we haven’t enforced these expiry dates until now.

This is a message just letting you know we will begin to notify customers when their maintenance and support expiry dates are coming up (this will be in the form of a notification within Bugify). We will also begin to enforce the requirement of having a current maintenance agreement in place in order to upgrade Bugify.2)Maintenance periods allow incremental updates like v1.1 to v1.2 but does not cover major upgrades like v1.2 to v2.0

If your maintenance period has already expired, we will continue to allow you to update Bugify for a few extra weeks.

Maintenance renewals are priced at USD $42 (they are actually calculated at 60% of your original purchase price within a min/max range and a default of $42 – so expect to pay $42).

We are very grateful for all purchases of Bugify and try to keep the cost as low as possible. Renewing your maintenance period helps to ensure the ongoing development of Bugify and frequent updates.

Notes   [ + ]

1. For those who purchased before July 2013 you may have noticed that the “Maintenance Expires” date in Settings – Licensing says N/A – this means maintenance periods do not apply to you and you will continue to receive updates.

Lucene

We have changed the way we index issue data in Bugify. These changes have dramatically improved performance of searching and indexing, especially if you have a large number of issues. In order to take full advantage of the changes, we recommend you re-index all your issues. To do this, go to Settings – General Settings, click on the Lucene Details link, and click the “Re-Index Issues” button.

 

Remember – if you’re working on language files, or have any custom code – make sure to take a backup before updating! Backing up before updating is always a good idea.

Bugify translations – Transifex

We have decided to give Transifex a go for managing Bugify translations. Until now, translations have been managed by email and some languages don’t get updated often enough. Using Transifex should make it much easier for both translators and developers to keep the language files as up-to-date as possible.

I will be sending a message to customers who have provided translations in the past. If you are able to offer translation help for a language Bugify already supports or a new language, please get in touch.

Inline image attachments

As of v1.6.1086, image attachments will show as a thumbnail.  When you click on the image, it will show in the browser (previously it forced the browser to download it). The first time you open an old issue, some (or all) of the image attachments might not show as a thumbnail. The next page refresh should show all the thumbnails. The reason for this is because Bugify will be processing attachments the first time they’re accessed (this doesn’t apply to new attachments).

Bugify version 1.6.1086 – Maintenance 6

This is the sixth maintenance release of v1.6 and also includes some important security updates.

  • Fixing cURL library bug causing incorrect parsing of HTTP response in some cases.
  • Fixing issue with last user always being selected for new issues.
  • Fixing issue with default milestone in new issues.
  • Fixing CSRF issue.
  • Fixing XSS issue.
  • Fixing issue with due dates for new milestones.
  • Removing password reset token when email address has been changed.
  • Added setting to auto-set 100% complete when an issue is resolved/closed.
  • Added new permission to manage labels.
  • Added description field for projects.
  • Allowing Markdown for project/milestone descriptions.
  • Caching dashboard charts.
  • Added hidden setting to turn Gravatar on/off.
  • Added hidden setting to enable HTML email notifications.
  • Added Spanish translation.
  • Added inline image attachments (for attachments linked to a comment).

Remember – if you’re working on language files, or have any custom code – make sure to take a backup before updating! Backing up before updating is always a good idea.

Bugify en Español

Thanks to the hard work of Carlos Silva Villamizar  and John Gamarra Gonzalez from High Developer S.A.S., we now have a Spanish translation of Bugify! We have had a number of requests for a Spanish translation lately so we are very thankful for their help.

All the Bugify translations so far have been done by helpful customers. We are so grateful for the hard work you do to provide translations for Bugify. Below are all the languages we currently support:

  • English
  • German
  • Spanish
  • French
  • Latvian
  • Dutch
  • Polish
  • Portuguese
  • Russian
  • Chinese

If you would like to see another language listed here, and are willing to help translate, please get in touch.

Some of these translations are a little out-of-date as new updates are released and we haven’t sent out requests for new strings to be translated. If you notice some English sentences showing when you should be seeing your language, please feel free to update the language file (application/languages) and send the updated file back to us. We are aiming to setup a better system for keeping track of translations, but in the meantime if you’re able to help out at all by filling in the missing translations where possible it would be very much appreciated.

Thanks again to all our wonderful customers!

P.S., the Spanish translation will be available in the next release due out very shortly.
