2.0.013 Jul 2020 13:26 major feature: This release contains some major changes, so make sure to read to bring your tracker up to date. There are special directions for those using the mysql backend. You can download it with: pip download roundup then unpack and test/install the tarball. Among the notable improvements from the 1.6.1 release are: Roundup is multilingual and will run under either Python 3 or Python 2. If you want to use Python 3, you *must read* the Python 3 Support section in the upgrading doc. Depending on the database backend you may have to export/import the tracker. Also you will need to make sure your tracker's Python code is Python 3 compliant. Thanks to Joseph Myers with help from Christof Meerwald. Roundup has a rest API to go along with the existing xmlrpc API. See doc/rest.txt for details on configuring, authorizing access (per role) and making a request. Thanks to Ralf Schlatterbeck who integrated and updated Chau Nguyen's GSOC code. PGP encryption is now done using the gpg module and not the obsolete pyme library. Thanks to Christof Meerwald. Use of mod_python is deprecated. Apache mod_wsgi documentation has been updated along with gunicorn and uwsgi and is the preferred mechanism. jinja templates updated to bootstrap 4.4.1. Templates use autoescape and translation library. Support for messages written in markdown added. SimpleMDE used as markdown editor to provide preview features. Thanks to Christof Meerwald.
