Version 2.7.2

Released: September 06, 2017


Fixes to the new mailer creation view

Some last minute changes to the dynamic form creation code added to support workflow state actions broke the creation of new mailer profiles. This is fixed now and a test was added to avoid future regressions. GitLab issue #431. Thanks to Robert Schöftner (@robert.schoeftner) for the report and the solution.

Event consolidation

Several events were created to audit the creation of new documents. These events caused some confusion and were improved. When creating a new document the two ‘document properties edited’ events were removed as this is an internal process and not an user event. Another change is the preservation of the user ID that submits the file to create the document. Now instead of ‘System’ the actual username of the user that uploaded the document will appear in the events log. GitLab issue #433. Thanks to Jesaja Everling (@jeverling) for the report.

Cabinet list sorting

The root cabinet list is now displayed alphabetically sorted. The list of cabinets to which a document belongs to is now displayed sorted too. Thanks to Thomas Plotkowiak for the request.

Visual cue for the document cabinet list

In the document list item view, a simple visual cue in the form of italized text was added to the document cabinet list. GitLab issue #435. Thanks to LeVon Smoker for the request.

Easier testing of production deployments

The testing library mock is now installed by default, making it easier to run the entire test suit on deployed instances.
