phpcollab v3 latest (late) news

Hi all,

I’m sorry for the “news blackout” on this blog. I’m here today to answer to all those people that are asking for news about phpCollab v3.

At the moment I’ve started working again on the project regularly. This means that I’m reserving some of my free time to keep developing phpCollab. During the last 6 months there were moments when I couldn’t work on this project, and, as this is an opensource project, nobody is obliged to work on it more that what they can/want.

Anyway, returning to what should be interesting: I’m nearly done with the users dashboards layout (thanks Adam!). From now on the goal of the development activities will be a release at the beginning of the summer.

This release should include all the basic functionalities for managing projects:

1) Dashboards for 4 different user group (developers, admin, project managers, customers)

2) Projects, milestones and issues management

3) Basic time management and activities logging

The development will be driven by the new layouts that Adam Patterson provided. This means using what is already in place with a new layout, and the creation of those functionalities that are “represented” on the layouts but not yet implemented.

Thanks again for your interest!

Updates from phpCollab v3 development

Hi all,
In the last few months we have done some steps forward on phpCollab v3 development.

The Ux is now carried out by Adam Patterson, and thanks to him we now have some screenshow of what will be the phpCollab 3 “look”. Below you can find two images about that.

While he was doing a great work on the UX side, new functionalities have been added to phpCollab v3.
We added :

  • Trackers functionalities
  • Issue log time
  • Issue estimated time
  • Analysis gantt chart

For a complete report of what has been done you can read the “what has been done” page on the phpCollab wiki.

For all developers: the github repository has been updated but the web interface does not seem to have seen it ;) Anyway, if you want to update your phpCollab source code just pull form the usual repository.

I’ll write again soon!

Planning for phpCollab 3

Hi,
during the last weeks I’ve been busy with some issues about phpCollab and with its planning. It was not a simple task and I hope it will be ok! Actually, I’m working to get it right!

The planning I made has started yesterday and should reach its “end” at the end of October. All the user stories chosen are on the “what will be done” wiki page.
At the moment the objectives for October are :
– ACL management of permission
– Strengthening ticketing module and adding messages functionalities
– Introduction of module to manage resources and “time”
– Gantt chart functionality for planning a project/milestone and for looking after its progress

From now on I’ll try to commit every changes on the phpCollab 3 github repository as soon as my test are all green. Moreover I will try to keep synchronized the demo and the phpcollab_dev environment with the github repository.

In conclusion, I planned to release a stable version of phpCollab 3 at the end of August and one at the end of October. To anyone who wants to contribute just send an email to phpcollab [at] ideato.it.

Have a good week!!
