|Summary||0006017: Filter change log by specific versions|
The changelog can grow into quite an unmanageable list as it lists all the changes between every version. Would be good if we could look at a specific few versions.
|Tags||No tags attached.|
There are two ways to implement this:
I think the first approach is easier to implement, simpler to use and will do the job.
I disagree that the first one is easier to use. It means that to ever have versions no longer display, you have to go and edit that version information. We have maybe 50 versions or more of change log. Part of the usage of this is that it should be able to be switched on and off easily. I only want to see the last 10 releases because that's where the interesting issues show up. But, that doesn't mean that under certain conditions that I wouldn't want to view all, or possibly the last 20 versions.
I think having a drop down of either "All, Last 5, Last 10, Last 25, Last 50" or by date "All, Last 1 month, Last 3 months, Last 6 months". Just store the selection as a cookie. Having it show by the last x versions is probably easier, just do a LIMIT sql statement on the query that pulls out the version info.
Having a "Show in Changelog" flag would be both tedious to keep up to date as new releases came out, plus it limits you so that once it's not shown, you aren't able to see that change log entry anymore. Let's say I get an email from a customer who is finally getting their software up to a rather old (but proven very stable) release. It's been checked to no longer show up, rather than just changing a drop down and having it requery with a wider range, I have to go to Manage, Projects, find the version, Edit, Change to Show, Save, Go back to Change Log, get the data, and then repeat the first part to hide it again.
I agree with nuclearspike, we're in a similar position with around 50ish versions, a filter would be much easier for the end user.
I also have to agree with nuclearspike.
Since the interest in version changes is primarily a function of time, Victor's first option would mean having to go back to each version I'm no longer interested and manually unchecking the flag. Tedious.
Yes, the ability to show only the changes of 1 (or some) particular version would come in very handy !!
I think this is the same issue as 0008334.
