Documents Module Released (04.00.00)

Last month I jumped up and helped with getting a documents module release together. Most of the development was already complete and the packaging and release process needed to be completed. We did find a few bugs with the code and fixed those issues, packaged the module and put it into the release process.

Here are the release notes that were submitted to the tracker.

MODULE:  Documents Core Module
VERSION:  04.00.00


DOC-3507 Import Contents returns error and displays a duplicate entry in Import file list (bug fix) Fixed bug:  Import XML reader was grabbing data from the first document in the list only thus creating duplicate entries.  Changed the import processor to read correct xml nodes for each document.

DOC-3300 Error exporting content when default settings screen not updated (bug fix) Added code to check for existing settings data.

DOC-4716 Import & File Access (bug fix) Added a check when setting url from import XML to insure internal Files are imported correctly.

DOC-5245  Alter file size display to display in MB if the file is more than 1MB in size Altered size display to show file size for files > 1MB in MB with two decimal places (instead of bytes)

DOC-6883 The scripts for 04.00.00 removed an extra return value for CreatedDate

DOC-3579 Add a check to determine whether the file exists while loading data in the documents editor. If it does not exist, a warning is presented to the user.

DOC-4448 Added a check to determine whether the module's view roles are a subset of the file's view roles. If not, the document editor displays a warning.

DOC-5244 Add "default" folder for documents module Add a new setting to the settings page so that users can set a default folder for each documents module instance.

DOC-1466  Show Download Count Added a download count column.

DOC-4447 Add the ability to select any "list" for document categories Added a new setting to the settings page to allow users to select any user-defined list as the document categories list (previously, the list had to be called "document categories").

DOC-3606 Add reverse sort to row sorting options Enhanced sorting options to provide descending sort.

DOC-5491 Allow user sorting of the documents listing Added a configurable option to allow users to have clickable "sort" headings for the document list to allow the user to sort the list in any manner, asc and desc by specific columns.  If this option is disabled (this is the default) all sorting will be done following the current process.


MODULE:  Documents Core Module
VERSION:  04.00.00

1. Ability to allow users to resort a document list by clicking on a column heading
2. New Default folder setting for a module instance.
3. Option to display the number of times a document has been clicked on.
4. Descending sort options
5. Admin view warning when documents are only visible to an admin


As for the Wiki Project, I'll be making a few security fixes for the 04.01 release next week and hope to resubmit it to the tracker.
