Mylyn-Mantis connector 3.2.0 released

Version 3.2.0 is a major feature release, comprising of performance enhancements, complete support for localised MantisBT repositories and better support for repository-configured settings.

Performance enhancements

Refreshing the repository configuration is usually slow due to large number of configuration settings that are retrieved. A first step towards making this faster is to implement refreshing the configuration of a single project only. This feature is now implemented and you can refresh only a single project’s attributes using the corresponding task editor button .

Refresh project attributes only

In our tests this cuts down synchronization time from 28 seconds to 6 seconds for a MantisBT installation with 16 projects.

Complete support for localised repositories

We now consider support for localised repositories complete. If it works for an English installation, it should work for any other installation. This includes repository attribute values, mapping priorities and resolutions and task list decorations.

Please note that task attributes will not be properly displayed in certain circumstances, due to a bug in the MantisBT SOAP API – see Troubleshooting: empty attributes in task editor for more details and possible fixes. The good news is that this has already been fixed in MantisBT and will be available in the next stable release.

Better support for repository-configured defaults

All configurable default values for fields ( severity , steps to reproduce etc ) are now preselected when a new task is created. Also, the ‘resolve as’ action preselects the configured status from the repository, rather than defaulting to the current status of the task.

Repository validation enhancements

The unknown error dialog we recently introduces was relatively uncut and appeared in too many circumstances. We know have better detection of predefined error cases and in consequence do not show the dialog that often. In addition, there is a real hyperlink which points to the Mylyn-Mantis troubleshooting page.

We’re confident that this is the best release to date, so download it and give it a spin. If you encounter any issues, let us know through our bugtracker or support forum.
