Mylyn-Mantis connector 3.1.1 released

This version is hot on the heels of Mantis 1.2.0 , therefore we build on the latest SOAP features added in that release.

Retrieve tasks using built-in filters

Up till now, retrieving tasks was only possible if you defined filters using the web interface. We now take advantage of recent bug fixes in MantisBT to retrieve the latest project tasks, without defining a project filter.

Due date integration

We now recognize and display the due date field if the repository supports it. Not only that, but the Mantis and Mylyn due dates are kept in sync. Note the due icon and the due date overlay

Basic time tracking integration

It is now possible to add time tracking information, but only if a comment text is added.

The time tracking information for an issue is also presented.

It is not yet possible to see time tracking information for each individual comment or to enter the time tracking in a more friendly format, but I plan to add these in the future.

Other improvements

  1. The People part has been tweaked to allow an assignee when creating a new issue and to allow un-assignment of an issue.
  2. The task editor page now has a submit button at the top and has the private section integrated into the Mantis page, instead of a separate one.
  3. An annoying bug where the plugin would install but fail at startup for older versions of Mylyn has been fixed.

For comments, bugs and support requests, our bug tracker and forums await you.
