A couple of weeks ago, we released an updated Redmine Stack for Redmine 1.0. If you’re not familiar with Redmine, it is a flexible project management web application. Written using the Ruby on Rails framework, it is cross-platform and cross-database. It includes support for multiple projects, role based access control, issue tracking, a Gantt chart, calendar, wikis, forums, time tracking and more.

The 1.0 release of Redmine is a major milestone and we’d like to congratulate and thank everyone in the Redmine project who worked on it. It includes a long list of improvements, such as:

  • Subtasks: You can now create subtasks and the parent task’s percentage complete will be calculated based on the completion of the subtasks.

  • Allow start date and due dates to be set via incoming email.

  • Ability to edit wiki sidebar.

  • Create links to other projects on wikis.

  • Add pagination to forum threads.

  • Rest API for Issues: Get a list of issues, create a new issue, update an existing issue, delete an issue.

  • Add support for alternate (non-LDAP) authentication.

  • Provide a description preview while editing an issue.
