The news update this month are few but regardless we do have some news for you.
SiT 3.62 was released 18th of July fixing a lot of bugs, read the release notes.
This release will probably be the last release before SiT 4.0 is released, don’t worry, we will continue the v3.x branch until around v4.2.
Due to the fact that there will be no new features directly in the 3.x releases, you might see new features anyway, in the shape of plugins.
During the past year a lot of plugins and dashlets has been created, these contributions might even find their way into the SiT core in v4.x, so one could see these as being test features.
The plugins also show how easy it can be to add own features to SiT! without having the terror of overwriting the self-made code when upgrading.
If you are a PHP programmer and you would like to help us, you are welcome to join our IRC and/or look in our developers wiki.
We are also looking for experienced artists, so if you are one, or know someone who would be interested, feel free to contact us (preferable on IRC or email to Project leader Ivan Lucas).
As always, Nicdev007 has made improvements to the Auto create with tags plugin.
For those who are not familiar with this plugin, I can make a short description of it. When a mail from an unknown contact enters SiT!, this plugin autocreates the contact, it checks the email domain and binds the contact to this site. It also checks for duplicates.
As an addition to my previous plugin, the tms add timeused where you can add an amount of time spent on an incident, when closing the incident, I’ve created a generic plugin that can easily be modified to suit your needs, the tms customfield close. This plugin adds a custom field to the close incident page, the custom field can be renamed to what you want.
Any support, tips, suggestions are welcome here in our forums
As a sneak peak I can present a plugin manager which basically, when it’s finished, helps you install plugins, show upgrades, enable/disable them etc. When finished this will be a great addition to SiT!
