New features in GForge 5.7

GForge 5.7 was released on April 20th and it sports several fixes and new features. Some of the most interesting are:

  • Item tagging is present throughout the system, and you can now search for items by tags.
  • Tabs administration: you can specify which tabs will be shown in trackers, documents and forums.
  • A project’s source code can be indexed using doxygen, and you can search for keywords in the source code. This is integrated within the regular search interface.
  • Captchas to prevent automatic account creation and forum posts (optional).
  • New serial type field in tracker.
  • Quick jump menu implemented in AJAX to increase performance.
  • New translation for Brazilian portuguese and updated translations for French, German and Italian.
  • Support for nss-pgsql. This allows for automatic updating of user permissions instead of relying on a cronjob.
  • Full git plugin installed by default.

You can download GForge 5.7 from the download page.
