This is a great event for the all Tuleap community: here is Tuleap 10!

So many things happened since Tuleap 9 that we thought that a quick recap was needed, if you did read carefully each of the 19 release notes since October 2016 and remember everything, you can go to What’s new since 9.19 to only get the fresh changes.

We take this occasion to warmly thank all the 24 contributors that made 10.0 as well as sponsor companies that drive the OpenRoadmap. They do help the dream to get an open source ALM tool come true.

With 114 user stories developed, 1100 requests solved, almost half a million lines of code added and 9000 files changes, it’s the most in-depth transformation of Tuleap since it’s inception.

New Features

New UI

As you can see in all the screenshots here around, one of the most visible change in Tuleap 10.0 is the introduction of our new Design Framework (tlp) and theme “Burning Parrot”. It’s been introduced in various places: site administration, project administration, Scrum, Kanban, Test Management, Dashboards. The work is not complete yet and it will take time to convert everything but we are working hard on it, next candidates are Document Management and Git, stay tuned.

Bug fixed:

Trackers

  • story #11104: specify how to monitor trackers
    • Allow tracker users to select the level of notifications they want to get on a tracker
    • All notifications will be done regarding user’s permissions (unless tracker admin disable it)
    • Access it with “Notifications” tab in tracker/artifact action bar
    • In case of conflict (admin set user in a group ”Notify on every change“ and user selected “No notification at all”) it’s the “No notifications” that is taken into account
    • Recommended alternative to “mailing-list for tracker notifications”

Tracker notification select list

  • story #11196: delete artifacts with REST api
    • Users can delete artifacts with automated REST call
    • In order to reduce risk of mis-use a rate limit must be configured
    • This rate is the number of artifact a single user is allowed to delete per 24 hour sliding window (the window start at first deletion)
    • By default feature is disabled by setting rate limit to 0, increase it wisely to avoid big troubles
    • If archivedeleteditem plugin is installed, an XML dump of the artifact is kept there. It might be possible to re-import it in case of error (check with support team)

  • story #11389: snapshot test executions
    • Foundation story for support of Steps in TTM

    • If test definitions evolve. Old campaigns will now display the old version of the test
    • Caveats and pitfalls
      • If a test is edited in the context of a campaign using the “Edit” button and the modal, test version is automatically updated upon save
      • If a test was updated outside the campaign and you want to update a campaign to the latest version of test, you need to remove test and it again

Bug fixed:

  • request #11417: TTM Campaign not displayed for non admin members
  • request #11406: Can’t load a campaign if there is no assigned to field in the test execution tracker
