Release Notes

Please check the known issues below before installation.

Installer
You don't have to go through 500 steps to install the software anymore just run the msi and it creates and configures the application for you(except for the 2 known issues below). Be sure to download and run the msi even if you're planning on doing some development.

Can run as a user with minimum access
The application no longer needs to be run as high privilege user.

Projects have user friendly urls
eg. example.com/p/MyProject.aspx

The default portal can be configured via the web.config
The application can support multiple portals simultaneously but you can configure the default portal from the web.config.

Ready for translation
English text has been moved into resource files ready for translation. If you're interested in translating it to your language please get in contact.

An Administrative user is now created on installation:
It was expected that an administrative user would be created when the application installed. This is now true.

Known installer issues
o) The environment variable PATH needs to have the Subversion and Apache bin directories for integration. There is code to do this in the installer but there is a bug and it doesn't seem to be doing the job.
o) The Subversion base path and SharpForge Apache configuration directories are incorrectly created with the read-only flag set. Again there is code to explicitly make these write-able but there is a bug.

Other known issues
o) Running in low privilege mode the application cannot restart services. For now you will have to manually restart apache after projects are created or if the Subversion configuration for the default portal changes.
o) Uninstall is not implemented in this version

Thanks for all the feedback and help.
