FileTrack v0.1-RC2 is released
The new FileTrack release is available for download. FileTrack is a Web-enabled communication log, keeping track of all your inbound and outbound documents. It supports multiple logs, auto-archiving of older entries, and generates simple reports based on multiple criteria. One or more log entries, contacts, or documents can be grouped together into an issue for easier monitoring.
Apart from a couple of minor bugs being fixed this release also includes all the changes required for making it compatible with the latest Porcupine version.
Download it and then follow the installation instructions to install it. Due to the latest desktop schema updates, the upgrade procedure is not so easy as doing a clean install.
If you need to upgrade to the latest version of FileTrack, you also need to upgrade Porcupine to the latest version. The steps required for upgrading are:
- First upgrade Porcupine to the latest version by using the standard procedure (do not forget to stop the service before attempting the upgrade) as described here. If you are running Windows it is recommended that you use an external uncompress utility such as WinRar. Using the built-in Windows zip handler will result in an non working server. After upgrading, the server won't start because of the current FileTrack version. The upgrade package installation will exit with errors. Ignore them.
- Download the new FileTrack ppf file and install it using "pakager -i -p FileTrack-0.1-RC2.ppf". During the installation process you will be asked if you want to keep a backup of the previous FileTrack source code. You are advised to do so only in case you have modified the code. The package installation will not be completed. Just ignore any errors for the moment.
- Download the "upgrade-0.5.ppf" package and install it using "pakager -i -p upgrade-0.5.ppf". If you are using the Porcupine source this download is not necessary. This file will normally reside on the installation's root folder after unzipping the source upgrade. On the other hand, this download is required for those who have installed the win32 executable. This time the package installation should exit normally.
- If you reached to this step then you have succesfully upgraded Porcupine and FileTrack to their latest versions. Just to make sure, you can now install again the latest FileTrack package.
