06/29/2010

Feng Office development team announces the release of Feng Office Collaboration Platform version 1.7.0. Feng Office latest version includes more than a hundred bug fixes and lots of usability improvements and new features.

Feng Onsite 1.7.0 is available for download here. Feng Sky installations will be gradually updated starting today, and ending on ten days approximately. In case you encounter any issues with the new version, please report them on the support ticketing system or directly on the bug tracking system. If you don’t like any particular change made to the system or would like to suggest an idea or further changes, feel free to start a discussion topic at the forum.

E-mail module improvements

As more and more Feng Office users start to rely on Feng’s e-mail module, it was time to give the e-mail module a little love and caring.

Most operations are now running faster, improving the overall experience of managing e-mail using Feng.

Long time request of having the e-mail list refresh automatically is finally included.

Export reports as CSV

All reports can now be export as a CSV file. Using this feature you can process the data of the report on your favorite spreadsheet application (ie: Excel, OpenOffice Calc, etc.).

New Feng Office Bug Tracker

06/29/2010

After months of struggling with the forum as our bug tracker, we’ve decided it’s time to move to a better alternative.

After some investigation we chose Mantis as Feng Office’s bug tracker because it provides the flexibility and features we need.

Today, our Mantis trial period is coming to an end with satisfactory results. Consequently, as of this post, the Bugs Forum will become read-only for future reference.

From now on, all bugs that require development team attention should be reported through our Mantis (http://www.fengoffice.com/bugs) .

Some notes:

  • Feng Office Customer can still choose to report bugs though tickets or through Mantis.
  • Bugs that are currently found in the Bugs Forum will not be forgotten. However, Mantis bugs will be prioritized. So:
    • If you’ve reported a bug through the forums and it hasn’t been solved yet. We recommend that you also report it on Mantis.
    • If you find a bug that has already been reported in the Forums but not on Mantis, we recommend that you also report it on Mantis.
  • As for features, we are still evaluating options. Meanwhile, we are not introducing changes. We’ll be using the forums to discuss them until we find a definitive solution. If you would like to join the discussion let us know in the comments.

And before you start reporting bugs, please take a look at this interesting bug reporting tips by Bernie Berger.

Thanks for listening!
