I'm proud to release version 1.5.0 of Roundup which has been possible
due to the help of several contributors. This release introduces some
new features, most notably modular web templating with Jinja2 as a
templating engine (the old templating engine is still the recommended
one) and, as usual, fixes some bugs:
- issue2550775 Added rel=nofollow to links in the journal linking to
attachments to allow the admin to delete attachment spam and prevent
search engines from increasing the rankings. (John Rouillard)
- issue2550808 Enhanced the boolean field template function. Now by
default the labels generated can be clicked on and select the
corresponding radio button. Also can create a trivalued radiobutton
(yes/no/unknown) as well as customize the labels for the
yes/no/unknown radio buttons. (John Rouillard)
- issue2550807 enhance classhelp method with ability to set html
properties on the generated link. (John Rouillard)
- Support for tx_Source property on database handle. Can be used by
detectors to find out the source of a change in an auditor to block
changes arriving by unauthenticated mechanisms (e.g. plain email
where headers can be faked). The property db.tx_Source has the
* None - Default value set to None. May be valid if it's a script
that is created by the user. Otherwise it's an error and indicates
that some code path is not properly setting the tx_Source property.
* "cli" - this string value is set when using roundup-admin and
* "web" - this string value is set when using any web based
technique: html interface, xmlrpc ....
* "email" - this string value is set when using an unauthenticated
email based technique.
* "email-sig-openpgp" - this string value is set when email with a
valid pgp signature is used. (*NOTE* the testing for this mode
is incomplete. If you have a pgp infrastructure you should test
and verify that this is properly set.) (John Rouillard)
- Introducing Template Loader API (anatoly techtonik)
- Experimental support for Jinja2, try 'jinja2' for template_engine
in config (anatoly techtonik)
- A new jinja2 template based on Classic schema and using Twitter
bootstrap for responsive behaviour. Run as -
python demo.py -t jinja2 nuke (Pradip P Caulagi)
- roundup_admin.py and other scripts can now be run directly from the
sources dir as roundup\scripts\roundup_admin.py (anatoly techtonik)
- Renamed old Templates classes to Loader classes to clarify sources
for alternative templating engines, updated docs (anatoly techtonik)
- Template selection code is moved from Loader classes into cgi.client
limiting the responsibility of Loaders to compilation and rendering.
Internally, templating.find_template is replaced with
client.selectTemplate (anatoly techtonik)
- Increased generated password length to 12 symbols to slow down GPGPU
attacks (anatoly techtonik)
- Implement XMLRPC MultiCall (including test), see
- issue2550789: add documentation on how to initialise a tracker
without exposing the admin password.
- issue2550805: Postgres should search title attribute case insensitive
like sqlite. Reported and fixed by Tom Ekberg. (Bernhard Reiter)
- Removed some old left over "rlog" references in documentation and code.
Makes the debugging.txt advise for the database unit tests work again.
- Fixed OpenPGP support for modern versions of libgpgme. (Bernhard Reiter)
- Restored compatibility with old style trackers (anatoly techtonik)
- Make roundup play nice with setup tools (for using with virtualenv)
- [minor] Template responsive: make demo.py work out of the box with it,
by setting the static_files config.ini setting to "static".
Footer: link fixed and hardcoded last modified date removed. (Bernhard Reiter)
- demo.py print location of tracker home and fully erase its directory
when nuking (anatoly techtonik)
- demo.py changing hostname in config.ini actually changes the address
where demo.py listens. (John Rouillard)
- issue2550802: Fixed date so second fraction can't cause rounding to
60.000 when serialising. Report and fix by Erik Hanspers. (Bernhard Reiter)
- issue2550595: Allow migrating from roundup 0.x to 1.4 (Thomas Arendsen Hein)
- issue2550634: New German orthography corrections (Thomas Arendsen Hein)
If you're upgrading from an older version of Roundup you *must* follow
the "Software Upgrade" guidelines given in the maintenance documentation.
Roundup requires python 2.5 or later (but not 3+) for correct operation.
To give Roundup a try, just download (see below), unpack and run::

Roundup is a simple-to-use and -install issue-tracking system with
command-line, web and e-mail interfaces. It is based on the winning design
from Ka-Ping Yee in the Software Carpentry "Track" design competition.
Note: Ping is not responsible for this project. The contact for this
project is richard(a)users.sourceforge.net.
Roundup manages a number of issues (with flexible properties such as
"description", "priority", and so on) and provides the ability to:
(a) submit new issues,
(b) find and edit existing issues, and
(c) discuss issues with other participants.
The system will facilitate communication among the participants by managing
discussions and notifying interested parties when issues are edited. One of
the major design goals for Roundup that it be simple to get going. Roundup
is therefore usable "out of the box" with any python 2.5+ (but not 3+)
installation. It doesn't even need to be "installed" to be operational,
though an install script is provided.
It comes with two issue tracker templates (a classic bug/feature tracker and
a minimal skeleton) and four database back-ends (anydbm, sqlite, mysql

I'm happy to announce the first new release of `world`, a command line script
and library that helps you figure out where in the world a top level domain
This is an almost complete rewrite of the tool that originally came with
Python. It's similar in nature to that tool, but rewritten for Python 3. The
script takes a somewhat different set of command line arguments and returns
The underlying library supports both Python 2 and Python 3.
