MantisTouch 1.1.2 Released

For those not familiar with MantisTouch:

“MantisTouch was developed to provide mobility to MantisBT. As a web app, MantisTouch provides a mobile optimized user interface for iPhone, Android, and Windows Phone. MantisTouch uses web services to access the bugtracking data allowing it to be installed on the same or a different server than MantisBT.”

This released is focused on addressing some of the common issues found during deployment in some of the customer environments. These include the following:

1. ‘Invalid controller specified (error)’ is now fixed. Instead, MantisTouch will prompt the real issue that caused the need to look for the error controller 🙂

2. Improved README with some extra installation steps that were missing from the previous versions.

The most common deployment issues were:

1. Errors caused by MantisBT API on the MantisBT side – These are typically caused by PHP errors / warnings that show up in the API due to errors in config_inc.php, custom_strings_inc.php, etc. You can resolve these issues one by one as MantisTouch errors on them, or you can use the following settings in config_inc.php, to make MantisBT complain on such errors to fix existing ones and avoid having new ones get introduced due to future changes:

$g_display_errors = array(
E_WARNING => 'halt',
E_NOTICE => 'halt',
E_USER_ERROR => 'halt',
E_USER_WARNING => 'halt',
E_USER_NOTICE => 'halt'

$g_stop_on_errors = ON;
$g_show_detailed_errors = ON;

2. Errors when url re-writing is not enabled, causing Zend framework to fail routing of checkLogin – See Zend Framework guide for URL re-writing setup for IIS and Apache.

MantisTouch v1.x license owners can download this version for free via the same link issued on purchase.

Please report issues under the ‘MantisTouch’ project in the bugtracker, or provide feedback via the feedback buttons in MantisTouch itself.
