Release Notes

Big changes to the Subversion integration. If you are using the new
Subversion pages in 2.5.9, you should upgrade to 2.6.0.

First of all, if you aren't using version control at all, start using
Subversion and TortoiseSVN. If you are using SourceSafe, you might
still want to experiment with Subversion/TortoiseSVN and BugTracker.NET
together just to see what you are missing.

IMPORTANT: To migrate to this release, run the SQL in upgrade.sql. The
sql creates two new tables, svnrevisions and svnaffected_paths and
loads them with whatever data you have in the bugfilerevisions table.
These two new tables REPLACE your old bugfilerevisions table. I am
not deleting that table, but I'm no longer supporting it.

IMPORTANT: You MUST** replace your BugTracker.NET subversion
post-commit hook script to work with the new database tables and new
web pages. Just modify the new one the same as the old, changing the
path to the "svnlook.exe" command and your database connection string.
I've also revised the script to make it easier to read and debug.

Also, several new pages REPLACE the viewfilerevisions.aspx page. You
will be able to do the svn commands cat, log, diff, and blame from
within BugTracker.NET. I'm interested in feedback on the Subversion
integration, so please let me know what you think at ctrager@yahoo.com.

For admins, there is a link at the bottom of the "revisions" page to
manually connect a revision to a bug, in case there's a glitch with the
post-commit script (like, the db was down at the time of the commit?), or
if you forgot to put the bugid in the comment.

Bug fixes in the subversion pages include:
  • Better handling of file renames, although it's not perfect. See the
note on renames in Subversion's documentation:
  • Handling of spaces in file paths.
  • Fixed ocassionaly hangs capturing the stdout output of the svn command.

Also, bug fixes unrelated to Subversion:
  • Added title to reports produced by "view data" link.
  • Fixed bug with single quotes in the both the labels and values of
project-level custom dropdowns.
