Mylyn-Mantis connector 3.5.0 released

Monitoring tasks

Thanks to recent improvements in the MantisBT SOAP API the task monitor list is available and also the ability to add yourself to the monitor list. This functionality is only available for installations running MantisBT 1.2.5 or newer.

Rich text support for comments

Our rich text support is extended to the new comment editor. We are also rendering comments as HTML if the rich text editor preference is enabled.

Tree display of sub-projects

Sub-projects are now displayed in a proper tree. This is more consistent with the Eclipse visual metaphors and fixes a display problem specific to Mac OS X .

Better rich text editor support

Thanks to recent improvements in both the connector and the HtmlText feature from Mylyn we are now able to generate exactly the markup that MantisBT expects . This should greatly improve the experience when using both the web interface and the text editor.

Mylyn-Mantis connector source moved to GitHub

SourceForge.net is a great place for an OpenSource project, taking care behind the scenes of many things so we don’t have to. That being said, GitHub’s way of encouraging contributions is a great incentive for projects to move there, so we bit the bullet and moved the source. The new location is https://github.com/Mylyn-Mantis/mylyn-mantis .

The current repository at SourceForge will remain in read-only while we make sure that the GitHub move is a success. Our other facilities – forums, issues, wiki etc – will remain at SourceForge for the time being.

To wrap up, here’s what you should take away from this posting:

fork, fork, fork

Forks away!
