Summary of New Features

  1. The CSS for the Browser App's help pages was not being delivered correctly by the installer (new installs only).
  2. The 'Manage Report Specifications', 'Edit Name' function had an issue where the edited name appeared in the wrong column, although this was just a display issue.
  3. 'Custom Admin Permissions' for 'Create Project' and project controls (Manage Plans, View Tasks For All Users etc.) had various issues, corrected in this version.
  4. When using a spreadsheet for storing risks, the 'Residual Risk Rating' was not being read in correctly into the database.
  5. There was a reporting issue with reporting at the portfolio level on a user-specified spreadsheet, if the 'Portfolio Treatment Cell' was not at (0,0) e.g. if you had one or more static header rows in the table. Fixed in this version so that the 'Portfolio Treatment Cell' can be anywhere in the table.
  6. The 4.0 server path includes SQL to update, and this by default reset the task/risk/issue saved views and saved report specs. This is now in a different installer section and not enabled by default, so as not to overwrite existing saved views and report specs. Note that when first patching from 3.4, this will need to be enabled.
  7. New 'Force Language File' option added to client and server, so you can specify a language translation file to use without having to switch your desktop to use a language-culture (e.g. you can use 'myfile' rather than 'nl-be'). The piabtriggerwatch.exe utility for sending email alerts has a new -forcelanguagefile myfile options.
  8. When in portable mode, the local 'My Documents' folder was '\bin\My Documents' but it should be '\local\My Documents'. Similarly the local 'temp' folder.

  10. In Method Manager, adding a new stage type can result in an error. Fixed in this version.
  11. In the 'Project Report' form, using the 'Load Specification' function, you get an error if you don't select a specification, although this doesn't cause further problems. Fixed in this version.
  12. The piabtriggerwatch.exe utility, that sends daily email alerts, was using the old 3.4 XSL templates which are monochrome and don't include by default all the new task/risk/issue fields from 4.0. Updated in this version to use the newer templates by default. Build 2
