DCL Source Code Now in SVN – Version 0.9.5RC2

I have switched version control systems from CVS to Subversion. I was getting a little frustrated with CVS, so it was time for something different.

0.9.5RC2 is currently all checked in if you would like to give it a spin. You can follow the instructions onĀ this page to get the code. As noted, you should add /trunk to the URL to only pull the latest code (that's all there is anyway, but in case I start tagging/branching, this'll keep it safe).

I have introduced tasks to work orders. These are simple one line items that can be entered and checked off. We needed this at work for breaking a work order up into a checklist of items that needed to be accomplished. Think of it as a ToDo list for the work order.

I really shouldn't be calling this a RC, despite the fact we are running it at work. I do have a couple of outstanding issues to correct with public users, but it is usable.

If you do decide to give this a spin, backup your existing database before you run the upgrade. The 0.9.5RC1 upgrade alone is monstrous. It took about 1 hour to complete at work. For reference, we have over 40,000 work orders and over 300,000 tickets. That generated a lot of contact records at over 110,000.

Feedback is welcomed and appreciated from anyone that runs the new version. I would like to get the final release out once I've got any relevant bugs and role-based security issues cleared up.
