There been long time since the last BUGtrack update. The release went through a rough patch but thanks to your reports we were able to identify and fix most of the problem within a day. We would like to thank you for your patience and your support.
So, what’s in?
You can now select columns to display and list format (Brief/Complete) right from the list page. These settings are remembered for Favorite/My Stuff and each saved filter. Moreover these settings are device specific – you may want to display issues as a list with all columns on 24” wide screen monitor and choose less columns or complete format on your smartphone.
As a bonus – one click Export button was added to a list page as well.
The screenshot speaks for itself - we now always keep table header on screen; long tables become much easier to read.
Brand-new text editor
We’ve swapped our home-brew HTML editor with industrial-strength TinyMCE editor. At the moment new editor’s features set up to be in par with old one but TinyMCE is indeed capable for more. We would suggest checking their demo – if you find some features useful feel free to add the request to Idea Exchange.
No more popup windows
Historically the color picker and calendars were rendered as popup windows. This approach servers us well since the Netscape times, but now it’s an age of tablets and new windows are often opened full screen. Calendars do not require a lot of space and popup windows were replaced with compact dropdowns.
HTML5 standard provides many new features, one of these is form validation. When running in HTML5 capable browser such as Firefox, Chrome or IE10 BUGtrack now utilizes standard form validation – if we can check for some common errors right in the browser there is no need to send invalid data to the server.
Quite simple change – when search field is focused, the dropdown with search options automatically opens.
