Latest SVN - getting ready for 1.0.5 alpha

Latest SVN - getting ready for 1.0.5 alpha 9 Years, 5 Months ago  
I am looking for some help getting the 1.0.5 release candidate out.

Please keep this thread to folks that know the SVN and have access to it. I wont be able to help new folks understanding the SVN.
If you experienced in pulling the latest SVN than here is what we are looking for:

Let me know how the latest SVN is working for you. Might want to read the SVN descriptions on what bugs have been fixed since 1.0.4
There are a lot of fixes that went into it as I have been continuously fixing them as I found them on my very own site. I have not been checking them in all the time, but have done so as of late.

The past 2-3 months I focused on SEO cleanup. Turned out to be a rather large undertaking. The vast majority of href links are now centralized into a central class and have follow and nofollow defaults assigned to them. The only portion of FB not gone through the SEO cleanup are parts of the threaded view section as well as the backend.

There will also be a cleaned-up, fully integrated version of default_ex. The SVN is currently missing the jscripts required to make it work, but I will add those soon.

As I am new to building any sort of releases, I will be writing some scripts to automate that process, as I just can\'t stand manual file copies...
This will take a couple of days, during which any experienced devs/coders can supply additional fixes. Post a detailed description of the problem here together with the modified file(s). If possible make the fix work with the latest SVN. I will pick them up right before I run the release candidate package.

Last but not least there will be changes to the english language file. Those working on translations should pull the latest version from the SVN and add those few text strings to your work. Currently there are no datamodel changes. I hope to make the upgrade as simple as a new install, you will only have to safe the config file and restore it after the new install.

Please refrain from other none directly related posts in this thread.

This new version will also feature new install/upgrade code that will allow the upgrade from any prior release without the need for manual SQL executions. All known table upgrades and html tag fixes will be applied as part of the automatic upgrade. Since this is brand new functionality, it will require extensive testing.
In preparation of this, please make sure those of you who want to test the new release have a test environment ready. Since the upgrade procedure might have to be tested several times until all the bugs are fixed, I recommend you create a local copy that you can restore to the previous version/state.

I am planning to release a little Joomla plugin/module that will automatically convert the file based configuration into a database version. Installing and un-installing that module will be the only extra step (other than backups) required before the upgrade.

Goal is to make the process as simply as this:
1.) install that little helper tool to convert the config data
2.) uninstall that little helper as its only mission was to convert the old config data
3.) unsinatll the old FB version
4.) install the new 1.0.5 FB version

Still some work left to make this work, but I feel this is worth investing into for the future of FB.

Just a quick update:

I have setup an automated build environment to automatically build releases from the SVN. I will do some initial tests with fresh installs.

Still need to finish a little dummy mambot to convert the config file into a database table for fully automatic upgrade of any existing FireBoard installation. Will focus on that as soon as the fresh installs of the new packages work as designed.

ok i don\'t have SVN experience and this is a minor issue, but i know that in fact, these entries are missing from the 1.0.4 language file:

_EDIT_TITLE
_YOUR_NAME
_EMAIL
_PASS
_VPASS

it\'s under Profile - would be good to add these to the language file :)

Hi, I installed the svn, everything went fine but when I read a thread the \"threaded view\" button does not appear (see the screenshot)

Re:Latest SVN - getting ready for 1.0.5 alpha 9 Years, 4 Months ago  
Am I missing something here ? I must admit I know nothing of fireboard permissions but this is in my opinion an obvious bug.
1. I restrict the user access to a category, only editors can see/post in that category
2. I added a user \"test\" to the group of editors
3. I logged with admin and post a topic in the restricted forum
4. Logged on again with user test which is in the group of editors. I can see the topic created(topic in the restricted forum) in the \"recent discussion\" list of topics but when i click on it it says that i don\'t have access. It doesn\'t make sense, why can i see the title if i canoot see the content ? Also restricted forum is missing from the category list

Another bug: editing ranks is not working, if you want i will post more details but this bug it\'s pretty obvious you can reproduce it easily.

Should I continue ? I mean is someone interested in this ? I know nothing yet about fireboard but I\'m a very experienced QA Engineer, I think I can help with testing if it\'s necessary.

Re:Latest SVN - getting ready for 1.0.5 alpha 9 Years, 4 Months ago  
I recomend U to continue. I personaly am interested in making FB1 stable.
I will post all the bugs found(front & backend).

Re:Latest SVN - getting ready for 1.0.5 alpha 9 Years, 4 Months ago  
I\'m also interested in a stable fireboard but if i post the bugs and nobody is fixing it, what\'s the point ? That\'s why I asked.
