    • BITWPD-71 - Issue with Error on Cell Comment and Dashboard Comment Save/Create
      • Similar issue log where CLOB values needed to be moved to end of insert statement in DEBUG log. This issue appeared sporadically but common denominators were due to large dashboard prompt selections having large amounts of embedded SQL inside of prompt values.
  • Updated/Changed
    • BITWPD-72 - Update to Print DEBUG log output in order to further identify issues for customers reporting printing capability issues

Version 3.8.9.4 - 20170229

    • BITWPD-67 - Issue with rendering of HTML based comments in: view comment, comment history, and dashboard comments

    • BITWPD-65 - CustomMessage Configuration Files Javascript File Reference Cache Break (Dev Team Deploy Process)
      • NOTE: BITeamwork now when deployed using the installer package from the download and deployed to the system (not via WAR patch only) will enable an extension on the core javascript files to prevent new release deployments from hitting the server cache or client browser cache. This is a transparent configuration to end users or any BITeamwork customer. It simply allows the product to fit with less dependencies into the environment. Javascript files will have a different suffix per release such as ...js?<version#>

Version 3.8.9.2 - 20170215

  • Database: This release aligns with the database schema of the previous 3.x version release

    • BITWPD-62 - Dash Documentation Not Showing HTML from Issue introduced in previous release
      • NOTE: BITeamwork now declares that customers should determine if advanced editor commentary will always be on or always be off. Switching between the two options would require a one way update in the RDBMS repository which would be a manual operation and not recommended. Choose one mode and stick with it. If switching from one mode to another as a permanent declaration change (frequent toggling of modes not recommended) then an update to the core comment tables replacing a \\n line breaks in the column value with <br> tag characters would be required if switching from the no advanced editor to advanced editor mode option.
