There are a number of new features upcoming for the 1.2.6 release and I felt like doing a preview of them to get some feedback from the community.
Feature: Web-based configuration – Gone is editing the config.php file for all the various settings. The only thing it holds now is the database connection info. There is going to be a new admin option called Edit Settings which will provide you with a nice web form for updating all of the various opendocman settings.
Feature: Multi-Language support – We have integrated a translation feature into OpenDocMan that will allow anyone to translate their own languages. Currently have Dutch, German, Spanish and Turkish. To translate a new language you would just need to copy the /includes/language/english.php file and rename it to your language. Then proceed to translate the various words and phrases from english to your own language. The new language will then be available in the Edit Settings page.
Feature: Web-based Filetypes Editor – You no longer have to edit the config.php file to add/update filetypes. There is now a new admin settings page called Edit File Types that lets you Select/Unselect/Add/Delete new filetypes that are allowed to be uploaded to your DMS.
Feature: jQuery Table output – The default file list code has been converted over to a nice jQuery table, with sortable columns, search, and pagination features. This replaces a hand-made system that was bloated and complex.
Feature: New UI Tweeks – Some improvements to the overall UI including new button styling, and more visual feedback messages.
Feature: Improved installer logic to provide better feedback to user on errors
Many bug fixes including:
- Non-admin user promoting themselves to admin
- Fresh install should use IF NOT EXISTS for db creation
- allowedFileTypes – not used for Adding a file, but is used for check-in
- PHP 5.3 Depricated functions
- Depricated function – ereg
- Usage of MySQL’s PASSWORD function in OpenDocMan
- Search by filename is hardcoded to be non-wildcard
- Add user error Incorrect integer value
