I am happy to announce that Redmine 4.1.0 has been released. You can review the details for the 250 changes that are part of this new feature release.
Here is an overview of the main improvements among all theses changes:
Issue list improvements
- Edit own issues (#1248 contributed by Yuichi HARADA): you can allow users with specific roles to edit the issues they created only.
- Log time for another user (#3848 contributed by Marius BALTEANU): you can allow some roles to log time for other project members.
- Grouping by date : start, due, creation, update, closing dates (#13803)
- Issue filtering by spent time (#26826)
- "starts with" and "ends with" filter operators for string values (#31879)
Issue history tabs (#3058 contributed by Marius BALTEANU)
You can now choose to display different details in the issue history using tabs: all changes, comments, spent time or commits.
Allow pasting screenshots from clipboard (#3816 contributed by Takenori TAKAKI)
You can now paste image data from your clipboard when editing formatted text, eg. using CTRL+V. That will automatically upload the image as an attachment and append the appriorate tag in the text in order to display the image inline. No more need to save your screenshot as a file before uploading it to Redmine.
Note that you can also drag and drop an image file into the textarea to get the same result.
Query system for Projects page (#29482 contributed by Marius BALTEANU)
The project list now supports filtering and an alternate table display similar to the issue list, with grouping and columns selection. Queries on the project list can also be saved in the same way.
Bookmarks and recently used projects in the project jump box (#31355 contributed by Jens Krämer)
This is a nice improvement for users who belong to many projects. You can now choose your favorite projects that will be displayed at the top of the project selection dropdown. This can be done by using the "Bookmark" link on a project overview. The dropdown will also display the projects you recently visited at the top of the list.
Custom fields visibility (#23997, #31859, #31925 contributed by Jens Krämer and Marius BALTEANU)
Just like issue custom fields, you can restrict the visibility of projects, versions and spent time custom fields by roles
CSV Import for Time Entries (#28234 contributed by Gregor Schmidt)
Just like issues, you can now bulk import time entries from a CSV file.
And don't forget to check the many other improvements brought by this new release in the Changelog.
Many thanks to Go MAEDA and all the contributors who made this release happen!
