We are pleased to announce the recent addition and general availability of three new Trac plugins:
Allows you to rename wiki pages. A new “Wiki Rename” menu item is added to the “Admin” tab, and a “Rename page” link is also added to the context navigation bar in the wiki.
Provides an optional What-You-See-Is-What-You-Get (WYSIWYG) text editor for wiki pages and tickets. This can be useful for novice Trac users who are not familiar with the Trac wiki syntax.
Adds a new “Files” menu item to the “Admin” tab. This page lets you upload files that can be downloaded using a direct URL (instead of a wiki or ticket attachment).
We are pleased to announce a number of improvements to the ProjectHut service. These improvements are described as follows.
We would like to thank you for your patience with the recent upgrade to Trac 0.11.2.1. We are happy to announce that the upgrade was a complete success and all accounts are now running with the new version of Trac!
As the number of improvements found in Trac 0.11 are numerous and many of them quite useful (such as the ability for users to specify their own timezone), we recommend that all clients take a few minutes to browse over the release notes. These can be found online at:
In addition to the Trac upgrade, we are proud to announce the arrival of several new ProjectHut-specific features, including an upgraded Control Panel and support for Trac plugins and Subversion commit hooks.
The new features are listed as follows:
By default, all Users registered in the Control Panel are given access to the WebDAV storage area. This new menu makes it possible to restrict access to a only subset of users. For example, this is perfect for situations where you wish to prevent your customers from accessing the WebDAV area while still allowing access by your staff.
Use this menu to configure actions that are executed each time a new revision is committed to a Subversion repository. The currently available hooks are:
A number of Trac plugins have been installed site-wide and can be optionally enabled using the “Admin” tab in each Trac project. The available plugins are:
We hope you had an enjoyable festive season and wish you good fortunes for the New Year!
Customers may have noticed over the last week we have completed deployment of a new version of the ProjectHut Control Panel. The main change has been the addition of a new “Trac Settings” page in the control panel.
The “Trac Settings” page allows you to tweak the behaviour of your Trac installations, beyond what is already possible from the Trac Admin tab. Additional features include being able to:
To access this page, first login to the Control Panel section of your account. This can be found at:
Select the “Trac Settings” link on the left side of the control panel. Select which Trac project you wish to edit the settings for, and click View. This page is also accessible from the “settings” link on the “Trac Projects” page.
IMPORTANT NOTE: in order for the “email notification” and “drop-down user-list” features to work correctly, once they are enabled each Trac user is also required to register their email address in the Trac system. To do this, each user must:
If you have any questions about how to use these new features, please don’t hesitate to contact us. Enjoy!
