WebIssues Client version 0.8.4 and Server version 0.8.2 have been released.
WebIssues is a system supporting team collaboration across the Internet. It can be used for storing bugs and other information with customizable attributes, comments and file attachments. The server can be installed on any host with PHP and MySQL or PostgreSQL. The client is a native KDE application.
WebIssues is mainly aimed at small development teams which don't need to set up an elaborate bug tracking system. It is easy to deploy and customize. It is also more comfortable to use than common web-based interfaces.
The client has a greatly improved issue history view which combines comments, attachments and changes into a single view and supports finding text and context menus. The comment editor has also been improved and now it's a separate window, not a dialog box. Finally, uploading and downloading attachments is more comfortable now, a progress bar is displayed during the transfer and remote files are handled correctly.
The server can now store attachments as files, not only in the database. This capability greatly improves performance for large attachments and helps using the server when database space is limited. A script which updates the database allows to smoothly upgrade from version 0.8.1.
