Release Meeting: 29 June 2015


1. 1.2.0 blocker review

  • NEW 13480 (Closed): Remove setting for HIDE_NON_WIKI_WORD_WARNINGs. The checkbox has been inverted, so hiding the warnings has the reverse effect of blocking all non-wikiword topics.
  • NEW 13482 (Closed): Broken JQ dependencies
  • 13139 (Closed): Backwards compatibility issues with Foswiki 1.2 default extensions All applicable extensions installed on Tho extensions are not backwards compatible. TopicUserMappingContrib and PatternSkin. Both use API changes in 1.2. The rest of the 1.2 extensions appear to work fine. SubscribePlugin will lose button styling on 1.1.x
For the TopicUsermappingContrib and PatternSkin, I'm proposing a simple PREINSTALL exit that will die if install is attempted on Foswiki 1.1. This should avoid anyone breaking their 1.1.x system.
sub preinstall {
die "Not compatible with Foswiki 1.1.x" if ($Foswiki::VERSION < 1.999);
return 'Installation continuing';

Utf-8 migration

  • CrawfordCurrie and GeorgeClark have been working on migrating TopicInteractionPlugin. 13477 (Closed): Using TopicInteractionPlugin to Upload an attachment produces an Internal Server Error pasted patch has the extension working, but without backwards compatibility. As there are also javascript changes required, we may need to extend the $Foswiki::UNICODE flag into the environment.

2. Proposed Schedule for Alpha / Beta / GA

  • Install 1.2.0 Beta 2 extensions on for more thorough compatibility testing. DONE Completed
