Mylyn-Mantis connector 3.3.0 released

The 3.3.0 release focuses on usability issues, aiming to make connector simpler to use and closer to the brower-based MantisBT experience.

Repository dialog improvements

We now recognized when the task repository returns a HTTP redirect, which usually signals that another location should be specified. The user is properly notified, instead of being presented an error dialog.

As you might notice from the above screenshot, we no longer require you to enter the full path to the repository location. Although we support the old setting, we encourage you to enter just the base path to your MantisBT installation.

Moving towards a more automatic style of configuration also means that this is the last version which will support MantisBT installations older than 1.1 . So for the 3.4.0 release we will not support MantisBT 1.0 anymore.

When validating a repository which have know problems which can lead to data loss the user is warned.

Edit task relations for existing tasks

It is now possible to edit relations for tasks which are submitted to the repository. Previously this was only available for unsubmitted tasks.

Much improved progress reporting

The progress dialogs now reflect the correct state when synchronising queries. Previously it would stall at 0%, and not display progress when queries or tasks changes were processed.

Hide ETA and projection when disabled

The ETA and projection fields can be disabled from the MantisBT configuration. If they are, we will not show them anymore.
