Some days ago, we publish a new stable release of FusionInventory for GLPI ( 0.83+2.2.1 ).
This release requires an up to date installation of GLPI 0.83. Please, take a look on the Installation and Upgrade documentation before the installation.
Once the plugin is up to date, go in Plugins > FusionInventory > Inventory > Data integrity check and use the Clean button to fix a Software inventory issue.
Following a meeting between the agent developers, the development process of the agent has been changed a bit. Here are some details.
"master" is now the stable branch, receiving only trivial bugfixes and new validated new features. This branch has to stable enough to allow regular new releases.
New features have to be prepared in dedicated development branches, with a name following "<branch>+<feature>" pattern. It will be merged in master branch as soon as the feature is validated.
For example, to develop a new task dedicated to coffee machines inventory:
- a new development branch called master+add_coffee_maker_inventory is created
- the new task is created, with adequate unit testing
- the new task is validated
- the development branch get merged in the master branch
Bug fix branch will be created when needed, (e.g, 2.3.x) to prepare fix-only releases. For example, 2.3.x will be created the day we need to release a 2.3.1 release to fix 2.3.0.
- "2.3.x" is now "master"
- "master" is now "master+restjson"
- "2.3.x+foo" are now "master+foo"
Some old branches have been renamed with a new "attic/" prefix.
Additional tasks integration
Additional agent tasks (network discovery, network inventory, ESX inventory and software deployement) developed and distributed separatly will be integrated into the agent repository, and the corresponding forge projects will be closed.
The 2.3.0 release is mostly ready. We have to work on the Windows installer to finish what Tomás Abad started some weeks ago.
GLPI 0.84 version is now in beta test, see this post in GLPI forum.
So we begin FusionInventory beta test for plugin FusionInventory for GLPI 0.84+1.0 and open the bug hunting season
See these information:
First Backup your data
Get the last version, download a development archive from github or use the git mirror with github FusionInventory for GLPI repository, master branch. Rename the folder unzipped 'fusioninventory-for-glpi-master' to 'fusioninventory'.
You have now only one plugin 'fusioninventory' to put in glpi/plugins/ folder and the webservice plugin is not necessary for deployment.
The user have opened the most bugs at the end of the hunter bug period will win a Raspberry Pi (yes we love free software!)
Some weeks ago, we enabled to translation plugin of Ikiwiki. The website can easily be translated and that's already what Emmanuel Le Normand (fr) and Piotr Adamcio (pl) are working on.
Thanks to them most of the pages are already available in Polish and French :).
If you want to translate FusionInventory, it's easy. You don't even need to create an account! Just take a look on this page. If you're interested to do some proofreading and improve the documentation, Be bold, it's a wiki!
