Tiki 14 is now scheduled to be released in late March early May 2015, as discussed in the February webinar. The release coordinator is Bernard Sfez.

As discussed in the February webinar, this will be a strict release so please refrain from committing potentially dangerous improvement/changes/fixes.

Next Release Scrum Meeting

While not truly a "scrum" meeting as defined by the software development methodology, all developers and documenters are encouraged to participate in these sessions. The goal is to supplement communications that are on this wiki page as well as on the dev-list with a real-time sync-up on release efforts.

The format of the meeting will be similar to the "10 am" meetings at TikiFests, where there is a quick touch-base of what each other has been doing, what's the next highest priorities, and talk about the "divide and conquer" strategy for the remaining tasks. The meeting will be carried out on https://tiki.org/Live

The last release update meeting, which also featured a presentation on how to conduct automated testing using Selenium Builder and Sauce Labs was at:

Thursday, December 4, 2014 UTC

Quick bug list

It was decided that on Tiki14 bugs and wishes could be reported either in a quick dirty list or using the bug tracker as usual.

Date or revision number Reported by Functional area Description Regression from version number Status
27/02/15 r54132 Bsfez Spreadsheet plugin Spreedsheet height is not displaying as the plugin says it should. Look above at the page (release sheet), the heigh as no value and it should show ALL the rows as says the help text. 12.x
27/02/15 r54130 Geoff menus if the option to 'Wiki Parse' a menu is used and an image is placed in the 'Name' field e.g. something like - Home followed by an img plugin - the image is now placed on a 2nd line instead of in-line. Seems to be because the img-responsive class is being added to the image regardless. r554332/3 introduced an IMG plugin parameter to suppress the responsive class - still to do: add a new pref so that the default can be set to either y or n: currently set to 'y' to suit new installs partially fixed
08/03/15 r54280 Geoff MAP plugin tooltip option for MAP plugin does show now but the text shown just says "undefined" instead of the object name - and when a map object is clicked to show the pop-up the object name used to show whilst the spinner was showing and the pop-up was building - but now it is just blank partial fix to show tooltip and 'undefined' text problem narrowed down to using the Lucene serach engine
27/02/15 r54130 Geoff suckerfish menus only a mini-bug - but a real irritation: if suckerfish (css) menus are used on a page whenever the page is loaded or reloaded for any reason all the menus fly open during the page load which just looks very odd. — Geoff, can you double-check that your vendor files are up to date? I saw this problem too and then ran composer and now the dropdowns seem to behavior normally. - Gary not sure when this started. Geoff: vendor files are all up to date. Gary: Do you have any custom javascript that may be interfering? This was the case for me.
27/02/15 r54130 Geoff WYSIWYG editor WYSIWYG full html editor: pop-up for setting links shows all the options in one box and cannot be saved - so links can't be set seems OK now - maybe a glitch at my test site? fixed
27/02/15 r54130 Geoff RSS RSS feed screen for wiki pages shows html tags for wysiwyg wiki pages previously logged as bug/wish item 4987 substantially fixed with r54336
27/02/15 r54130 Geoff Menus wiki parsed menu labels (Name field) display html when a bootstrap menu is used previously logged as bug/wish item 5334
FIXED r54292
01/03/15 r54148 Geoff Newsletters when a newsletter previously created with the wysiwyg editor (ie it has had the various HTML flags set), it shows the raw html when it is retrieved from the archive for simple viewing - but it is OK if retrieved for immediate resending previously logged as bug/wish item 5400
01/03/15 r54148 Geoff Newsletters Newsletter completion text and download log message not shown when 'throttling' is used previously logged as bug/wish item 5401
06/03/15 r54249 Geoff WYSIWYG editor WYSIWYG full html editor: text no longer wrapping in the Source screen of the editor - scroll bar shown for long lines instead
08/03/15 r54280 Geoff IMG plugin/customised theme an option when using the plugin editor with the IMG plugin is to browse the File Gallery to select an image and set the File Id when the File Gallery source option is used. This then opens a pop-up into the File Gallery - BUT the theme shown in this pop-up is the 'base' theme and any customisation with a new custom option is ignored Not a problem after all - just a quirk of my test site that also had some theme control settings that were confusing me - not a problem after all
08/03/15 r54280 Geoff external link icon with custom option when a wiki editor created external link is shown we generally get the  icon shown - but with a custom option I am showing a strange green question mark ie Question - but I've not set anything different so far as I'm aware this is odd - it keeps flip-flopping: sometimes it shows the right icon and then later it doesn't ???
08/03/15 r54280 Geoff Newsletters on some Newsletter admin screens, eg when previewing a new set of content to be sent, the custom newsletter.css styling is being applied to the whole Tiki screen with odd results - but obviously it should only be applied/added to the content that is sent out as the email
25/03/15 r54733 Bsfez SocialNetworks I activated "Login using Facebook” after setting fb app. I set “Auto-create Tiki user ” and "Require Facebook users to enter local account info" (so user can enter realname). User creation using facebook is successful, I can login also BUT then come the dialog for the user to enter local account info.
25/03/15 r54733 Bsfez TextEditing Quote like " are changed to “. This is breaking wikimarkup.
25/03/15 r54733 Bsfez File Galleries Gallery path/parents is displayed even if option is uncheck in the galleries display properties and in the admin file display preferences. Seems that the condition is wrong to set style to “display:none;” in "templates/list_file_gallery.tpl” line 63 - {if ( isset($smarty.session.tiki_cookie_jar.show_fgalexplorer) and $smarty.session.tiki_cookie_jar.show_fgalexplorer neq 'y') and ( ! isset($smarty.request.show_fgalexplorer) or $smarty.request.show_fgalexplorer neq 'y' )}display:none;{/if}
