       proper group.

Huge WebGUI Upgrade
By Scott - 6/23/2010

It's been a long time since I've had time to do much server maintenance.  Today I managed to get us all caught up with the latest WebGUI.  We jumped all the way from 7.7.32 to 7.8 to 7.8.22.  I also updated the software that powers WebGUI (the WRE) to 0.9.3.

Nobody reads the bug fix list, so I'm leaving it out.  :-)

New SINGE packages online!
By Scott - 11/3/2009

Due to popular demand (no kidding - we were linked on several retrogaming and emulation sites!), we've made the installation for SINGE on Windows quite a bit easier.  It's still not great, but it can at least be performed by actual humans now.  Enjoy!

WebGUI 7.7.x Notes
By scott - 9/3/2009

The upgrade from WebGUI 7.6.x to WebGUI 7.7.x brings major changes to the WebGUI platform.  Please check your sites for the following "gotchas":

    * 29 templates have been replaced with new ones. These are the templates
      for the Article, File, Folder, Image, Navigation, Layout, Poll, Search
      and Syndicated Content assets. 13 templates have been deleted (Article,
      Navigation and Layout templates). These were deleted because of deprecated
      code, redundancy and because we are want to reduce the number of
      templates. This will make the whole set of templates more comprehensible.

      Changes for all these templates:

      - extra divs, classes and IDs have been added;
      - consistent markup for recurring code, like titles, descriptions, attachments and pagination;
      - inline styles and deprecated code removed.

      Article

      - All Article templates:
          - Removed pagination. This will be re-added later, when the pagination macro bug has been fixed (bug #10619)

      - Default Article:
          - Added attachment loop (RFE #4152)
          - Removed code for image, since there now is a dedicated Article with Image template

      - Center Image:
          - Deleted: align="center" is deprecated

      - Left align image:
          - Changed name to Article with Image
          - Removed tables and added styles for img positioning

      - Linked Image with Caption
          - Removed tables and added styles for img positioning

      - Item:
          - Added attachment loop

      - Item w/ popup links:
          - Deleted: pop-up links are bad practice and this doesn't need to be a default

      - Article with files:
          - Deleted: attachment loop now added to Default Article

      - article.css added 

      File

      - Default File:
          - The linktext is title instead of the filename (RFE #10173)

      - Flash File:
          - Template now uses swfobject code
          - Absolute width and height attributes are set in the html to replace the percentage value and inline style

      Folder

      - File Folder:
          - The linktext is title instead of the filename (like in the Default File template)
          - Tables have not been removed, since they are semantically correct here

      Image

      - Image:
          - Only added extra div with ID and class

      - Annotate Image:
          - No changes

      Changes for Navigation

      - crumbTrail:
          - No specific changes

      - verticalMenu:
          - Deleted: best practice is using "Bulleted List" for vertical navs

      - horizontalMenu:
          - Based on unordered list
          - Added styles

      - DropMenu:
          - Javascript cleaned up
          - Noscript alternative added

      - Tabs:
          - Based on unordered list
          - Added styles

      - Tree Navigation:
          - Javascript cleaned up

      - Hierarchical top nav:
          - Javascript cleaned up

      - Synopsis:
          - HTML based on definition list

      - Bulleted list:
          - Now always generates validating html (closing ul and li tags)

      - Indent Nav:
          - No specific changes

      - navigation.css added

      Layout

      - All table layouts:
          - Deleted: using tables for positioning is bad practice

      - All non table layouts:
          - Removed unnecessary divs ("layoutColumnPadding" and "content")
          - Styles for positioning added

      - One Over Two:
          - Newly added
          - Replaces News, but has one less content position

      - News, Three Over One, Left column:
          - Deleted: we want to reduce the number of templates and only kept the basic/most used page layouts

      - layout.css added

      Poll

      - Default Poll:
          - General cleanup, added extra classes and IDs

      - poll.css added

      Search

      - Default Search:
          - Results in a definitions list
          - Form post back to the current page instead of to the asset in wobject focus,
            this prevents possible "breaking" of the style

      Syndicated Content

      - Default Syndicated Content:
          - General cleanup, added extra tags, classes and IDs

      - Syndicated Articles:
          - General cleanup, added extra tags, classes and IDs
          - Removed inline style

 

   * A basic behavior of the Inbox has been changed.  If a message is
     sent to a Group of WebGUI users, and any member of the group reads
     the message, then that message is marked as read by all members.  This
     most often happens for commit reminders for version tags that require
     approval.  The old behavior often resulted in several users trying
     to approve version tags that had already been approved.

 

   * The RSSCapable class and RSSFromParent asset have been removed.
     Any custom assets using those are recommended to switch to the new
     RssFeed AssetAspect.  If not used by custom assets, the tables
     used by them will be removed from the database.

     This will change the URLs for your RSS Feeds from "myAsset.rss" to
     "myAsset?func=viewRss".  You will need to update all Syndicated Content
     assets and other content aggregators that had the old URLs.  Alternately,
     you can use Redirect assets to forward the old URL to the new one.

 

   * Keywords are now comma separated rather than space separated.  Quotes are
     no longer treated specially and will become part of keywords.  Keywords
     cannot contain commas.  Keyword searching is still case insensitive, but
     keyword will preserve the case of what is entered.

 

 

Upgraded to WebGUI 7.7.21
By Scott - 10/3/2009

This stable release of WebGUI 7.7 contains fixes for the Calendar, DataForm,
Thingy, Survey, Shop, In/Out Board, Code Editor, Wiki, Gallery, package imports,
Trash, Clipboard, Subscription, and a general database clean-up.

Gotchas:

    * The EventManagementSystem schedule template was accidently given
    the same namespace as the main EMS template.  This allowed the
    wrong template to be chosen for the main EMS template and the
    schedule template.  The upgrade from 7.8.0 to 7.8.1 will attempt
    to fix this when default templates have been used.

Changelog:
 - fixed #10998: wiki page locked?

Server Migration - Complete!
By scott - 8/14/2009

Our new server is up and running beautifully!  We'll still be doing performance tweaks and minor adjustments as time goes on, but already it's outperforming the one it replaced.

If you have any problems with anything, please let us know.

Upgraded to WebGUI 7.7.22
By Scott - 10/25/2009

This stable release of WebGUI 7.7 contains fixes for the Shop, Internationalization,
Datepicker, Product, Image, Survey, Syndicated Content, Storage, Asset Manager,
Event Management System, Story manager, Profile, Matrix, Articles and the Wiki.
Several issues dealing with displaying dates via the DatePicker were also
fixed.

Gotchas:

    * WebGUI creates thumbnails for uploaded images.  The name for
      those thumbnail files is created by prepending "thumb-" to the
      name of the file.  If a file that start with "thumb-" is created
      then WebGUI would throw an error.  Starting with 7.7.22, files
      that start with "thumb-" will be renamed by removing that
      prefix from the filename.

Server Migration - Update
By scott - 8/12/2009

Our new DNS and Email servers are now in place and running great! To make things even easier, we've decided to continue to run a POP3 server for people who wish to use it instead of forcing a switch to IMAP.

It will take a few days for all the DNS updates to settle down. Once that happens, we'll finish up syncing email and shut the old box down.

Hopefully, you'll all see a lot less spam and get faster name resolution when using our servers.

Upgraded to WebGUI 7.6.31
By scott - 7/14/2009

This release fixes a long standing bug with editing a page.  Immediately after editing a page, there were no editing controls or drag bars.  This has been fixed.  All page layout templates now use H2 tags, instead of a random smattering of H1 and H2.  Comments added to a wiki now show linebreaks in HTML.  The If macro will now consider a value of 0 as false.  Exceptions from the Shop are now proper subclasses of WebGUI::Error, so exceptions will be caught.  Some sites that hand modified the user profile table could not create new User Profile fields.  This bug has also been fixed.

Changelog

 - fixed #10610: editing a page and editing goes away
 - fixed: Exceptions from WebGUI::Exception::Shop
 - fixed #10579: H1 vs H2 in PageLayouts
 - fixed #10629: WebGUI::ProfileField create new field bug
 - fixed #10626: Carriage returns stripped from Wiki comments
 - fixed #10630: If macro says that 0 is true

Server Migration - It Begins (Again)
By scott - 8/5/2009

Once again we're upgrading and moving services around to improve the performance and stability of our network.

Our main servers are now all running Ubuntu 9.04, either 32 or 64 bit depending on what the server does. Only DNS and Email remain to be migrated.

You should not notice any change when the DNS server makes it's hop to it's new server, but Email may be a different story. We're doing everything we can to prevent any kind of service outage, but during the move you may receive a message twice or get a few delivered out-of-order.  If you receive an error while attempting to send or receive mail, just try again in a few minutes.

None of your Email settings should need to be changed, however, we are going to drop support for POP3 and move to the far more secure and feature-filled IMAP transport for picking up your mail. If you currently use POP3 and need help reconfiguring your client, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Upgraded to WebGUI 7.6.35
By scott - 8/11/2009

WebGUI 7.5.35 contains fixes for the NewMail macro, the Rich Editor chooser for the Inbox Account Plugin, utf8/latin1 encodings in the database, Gallery, SQL Report download groups, the Admin Bar, the Cart plugin for the Shop, and the Rich Editor itself.  Many of the labels in the LDAP authentication screens were updated to be more clear and to use LDAP terminology.

Gotchas:

    * It was found that the combination of
        DBI: 1.52
        DBD-mysql: 3.002
      will cause an error during the 7.6.32 upgrade.  Later versions
      of these modules should work.

Changelog

 - fixed #10751: Only users in Content Managers group can make Shortcuts
 - fixed #10752: Missing SQL Report download group default
 - fixed: #9595: Gallery layout corruption with old browsers
 - fixed #10279: Some columns still latin1 after upgrade to 7.5.40

Upgraded to WebGUI 7.6.30
By scott - 7/8/2009

The biggest bug fix in this release has to do with iCal feeds.  Our iCal code is now tested and much more robust and correct than before.  If a snippet was empty, then it would ask you to add a page with the same URL that it uses.  This has been fixed.  Empty snippets now just send you no content.  There was a bug fixed in the 7.6.25 to .26 upgrade having to do with cleaning out old AddressBooks.  Unless you use the Shop and have users who have deleted their accounts you will not come across this bug.  The Collaboration System is now more tolerant of UTF-8 characters when autogenerating a synopsis.  A rendering issue was fixed in the Thingy where the Cancel and Submit buttons were hidden.

Gotchas:

   * It was mistakenly reported that 7.6.29 would be a stop version for
     upgrades.  This is incorrect.  7.6.29 is not a stop version.

Changelog: 

 - fixed #10602: Calendar feed importing extra characters.
 - fixed: Internationalize Event edit form error messages.
 - fixed #10605: Upgrade 7.6.24-stable to 7.6.29-stable
 - fixed #10607: snippets empty
 - fixed #10601: Edit field in Thing: no submit button
 - fixed #10612: strange i18n, with regard to label
 - fixed #9935: German characters in Collaboration System

 

Upgraded to WebGUI 7.6.32
By scott - 7/22/2009

   the screen. ( Martin Kamerbeek / Oqapi )

Upgraded to WebGUI 7.6.33
By scott - 7/29/2009

This release fixes the Pagination Macro.  It will now safely split content, even if it is inside HTML tags.  Rendering issues have been fixed with the Product, Calendar, and the Account templates.  The Default Gallery Album View Thumbnails template has been reworked to use CSS instead of JS for the thumbnail pop-ups.  A bug in the the Syndicated Content asset has been fixed, where it had a problem with identifying some URLs.  The Duration Form plug-in now does a better job of remembering exact intervals.

Gotchas

    * The Default Gallery Album View Thumbnails template has been reworked
      to get rid of intermittent rendering bugs with IE7.  The thumbnail
      pop-up is now completely CSS.  The thumbnails.js file is still available,
      but is now considered deprecated.

Changelog

 - fixed #10651: Dashboard Content positions

Upgraded to WebGUI 7.6.34
By scott - 8/5/2009

This release fixes resizing of the CodeArea (used for editing templates), javascript errors in the Matrix, and bad style templates in Folders in the Import node.  Two calendar issues have been fixed, making the Calendar more compliant with iCal.  Please be sure to read the gotcha about Spectre needing a PID file.

Gotchas:

    * Spectre now works like many other programs and writes a PID
      file.  The location of that file is required to be in your
      spectre.conf file to start or stop.  After installing this
      version, you will need to manually kill spectre and then
      restart it.

Changelog:

 - fixed #10667: cannot change size of template editor
 - fixed #10692: Unprivileged users can stop spectre
 - fixed a bug where the textarea (based) form plugins would put multiple identical style tags in head in some cases, which caused javascript errors in IE. ( Martin Kamerbeek / Oqapi )
 - fixed #10720: Calendar iCal dates can exceed the number of days in a month
 - fixed #9850: Calendar Import Incorrect
 - fixed #10721: Invalid/Missing Style TemplateIds in use
 - fixed #10029: Account CSS rule scoping
 - fixed #10641: Matrix Asset - Compare/Search buttons broken in Opera

New News
By scott - 7/7/2009

To help people keep up with all the changes going on here at Jaeger Technologies, we've decided to add a news section.  We'll post all the latest goodies here, and if you want, you can even subscribe to the updates or pick them up using an RSS reader.

Pretty exciting, eh?

Upgraded to WebGUI 7.6.29
By scott - 7/7/2009

This release has two important fixes for the Calendar.  A bug with importing iCal data was fixed, where the CalendarUpdateFeeds workflow would ignore the last line.  The datepicker was also fixed, so that multiple datepickers on a page do not leak dates between each other.  There is also a bug fix for error handling during EMS imports, and inconsistent metadata handling between assets.

Gotchas:

   * Due to changes in the userSession database table, you must upgrade
     to 7.6.29 before upgrading beyond this version.
 
   * WebGUI has allowed metadata possible values to be processed differently
     by Posts than from other Assets.  This causes problems when metadata is
     shared between Posts and other Assets.  To rememdy this, all metadata
     possible values are being moved into the standard "pipe format", and
     the Post will no longer process data in the other format.

Changelog:

 - fixed #10549: EMS import
 - fixed #10574: Creating Calendar Entry
 - fixed #10522: Metadata value & label problem 
 - fixed #10594: iCal title display error.
