]po[ Version 5.1

Major Enhancements & New Packages

  • Budget Planning and Tracking:
    A new budget management package allows users to define hierarchical project budgets using drag-and-drop. This feature extends the use of ]po[ to "classical" projects in construction and engineering. It also caters to large enterprises who need to track project progress vs. budget consumption.

  • The assignment of actual costs to budget line items works automatically using a classification engine, taking into account cost type, material, project phase, creation user and other parameters. Financial staff can override the default classification. A tutorial is available, please contact us for a free demo. 

  • Gantt Editor Improvements:
    The Gantt Editor was introduced in ]po[ V5.0 with a limited feature set as an MVP (minimum viable product). V5.1 brings a higher resolution in the scheduling engine and about ten smaller enhancements.

Non-functional enhancements in ]po[ V5.1:

  • Fixed Security Issues:
    V5.1 fixes several important security issues that required important changes in system libraries to fix.

  • Implemented CSP:
    The entire application now uses CSP (Content Security Policy).

  • Update of Technology Base:
    We updated the underlying infrastructure to OpenACS 5.9.1, PostgreSQL 10.x, Naviserver 4.99.8 and CentOS 8.2

V4.1 Changes

]project-open[ V4.1 is mainly a bug fix release with gradual
improvements thanks to several large customer implantation

New Packages

- Mobile Timesheet Logging (experimental):
  A Sencha client for mobile devices (issues on Android?).

- Rule Engine:
  Allows you to define actions that are executed once a value
  of a project, a task or any other business object (future)
  changes or reaches a certain value.
  For example, a task reaching 100% could trigger a notification
  email to the project manager.

- CRM Opportunity Tracking:
  This package maintains a list of opportunities during the
  qualification and sales cycle (sales pipeline).

- Periodic Invoicing (experimental):
  This new package introduces the notion of a "service contract"
  with certain parameters including a monthly fee, a number of
  free service hours and the price per additional service hour.
  A (semi-) automatic invoicing functionality allows to process
  many service contracts in "batch mode".

- Events & Training Management:
  This new package is now running in production with one
  customer. It consists of a new business object "event"
  that handles resource allocation using a calendar view.

Important Features

- GUI:
  Added sub-menus to main tabs - still accepting comments

- Absences:
  Automatically maintaining groups per office in order to allow
  for bank holidays per office. These bank holidays enter into
  the resource management calculation algorithm.

New Experimental Functionality

- Cloud Backup:
  A new experimental feature allows you to perform backups
  from your on-premise Windows or Linux installation to a
  ]project-open[ backup server. In case of an accident we
  will offer you the option to "resurrect" your machine as
  a SaaS hosted machine within 24 hours.
  This is an experimental service. Please let us know if
  you are interested, in exchange of two years free service.
  We plan to price this "Cloud Backup" service at EUR 10
  per month with standard SaaS charges in case of a restore.

- Project Membership based on Groups:
  A new feature allows you to add groups as "members" to
  a project, company or other business object. This allows
  some customers to streamline permission assignment.

- Fast-Track Customer Contact Adding:
  We have included a new option to enter CRM customer
  contacts + companies including a duplicate check based
  of fuzzy full-text search.

Bugs Fixed

- Timesheet Approval Workflow
- Localization:
  Fixed various non-translatable strings
- Auto-Login:
  Fixed behaviour for automatic login from emails sent
  out by the forum and mailing functionalities.


- A large customer with 40.000 users served as a base
  for a number of performance enhancements that have
  become part of the product.

Small Stuff

- CRM Mass-Mailing functionality:
  You can now send thousands of personalized emails
  messages to customers of other groups.

- Helpdesk:
  Priority changes now send out better notifications mails.

- New reports:

- Fixed Resource Management:
  - New report(?)

- Task Management:
  ]po[ now allows a user to delete a task in a project, if
  there are no financial items related to the task.

- Workflow Vacation Handling:
  Users can now specific their replacement when creating a
  new absence. The absence replacement has the right to
  process workflow approvals for the absent person during the
  vacation period.


- A scurity testing company performed a one week testing on ]po[
  and found no major issue. However, there were several minor
  issues that were fixed in ]po[ V4.1:
  - Header Injection
  - Redirect
  - SQL injection in the category administration section.
    This bug would have been serious. However, the affected pages
    are only accessible to the system adminstrator who has the
    right to perform arbitrary SQL statements anyway.
  - "util_memoize" Issues:
    ]po[ contains a two-layered protection against SQL injection
    attacks. Issues in the use of util_memoize broke the database
    layer in several pages. However, the second "ad_page_contract"
    layer prevented actual exploits.

- Improved IDS (Intrusion Detection System):
  ]po[ now includes a series of "sensors" and an integrated
  reporting functionality to detect unusual activities in the

V4.0 Changes

Incompatible Changes

]po[ V4.0 requires new versions of OpenACS, AOLserver and PostgreSQL,
so customers with AOLserver 3.3.x or PostgreSQL 8.1 or below will have
to update their entire installation. This is the reason for the change
in the "major" release number to V4.0. These changes are justified by
several main improvements:

      * New "XoWiki":
	XoWiki is a full Media Wiki implementation integrated with the
	rest of ]po[.

      * AJAX Support:
	The new OpenACS version (5.7) includes support for a number of
	AJAX libraries. AJAX support is going to become progressively
	more important.

Major Enhancements & New Packages

      * MS-Project Round-Trip Integration:
      	V4.0 allows you to start your project in ]po[, import a project
	schedule from MS-Project, continue to edit information in ]po[,
	export the results to MS-Project for further editing, import the
	results and so on.

      *	LDAP and Active Directory Integration:
      	V4.0 includes a configuration wizard that guides usres through the
      	process of setting up an integration with Active Directory.

      * System Configurator:
	A new configurator allows to export a ]po[ configuration into CSV
	(Excel) format and to apply the configuration to a new server. This
	configurator allows us to define several "verticals" for ]po[ with
	very specific configuration, effectively reducing the effort
	necessary to adapt ]po[ to a user's needs.

      * Project Baselines (Enteprise Edition):
      	This package package stores "versions" of a project and allows
	users to compare the current project plan to previous plans.

	become part of the ]po[ "enterprise" version.

      *	Financial Planning (Enterprise Edition):
      	The package allows for financial/cashflow/budget planning per
	project phase, project member, cost type and date (month, quarter,

      	This package allows to manage a risk plan per project. A graphical
	indicators shows summarized risks.

      * Sharepoint Integration:
      	The package links ]po[ projects to a Sharepoint server for storing

      * Mail Tracking:
      	A CRM package capable of associating incoming and outgoing mails
	with users and projects.

      *	Funambol integration ( Outlook and mobile devices):
      	The Linux version of ]po[ V4.0 will include an experimental
	Funambol integration. Funambol  is a SyncMS server allowing to
	synchronize tasks and calendar items across mobile devices and
	PIM software including MS-Outlook. We expect to improve this
	integration during the course of the V4.0 lifecycle.

      *	SLA Management and improved Helpdesk:
      	A ITSM package that provides "SLA Parameters" to capture
	contractual rules defined in SLAs and a component for SLA working
	hours. Indicators automatically track the value of SLA parameters,
	warning managers if defined SLA levels are close to be violated.

      * CVS Integration:
      	This ITSM package allows to import CVS commits into ]po[,
      	automatically associating commits with projects.
	The package also allows to generate CVS+ACL configuration files,
	effectively allowing to maintain CVS permission configuration in

New Features:

      * AJAX Date-Pickers for all important forms:
      	All important forms in ]po[ now include an AJAX date picket widget
	in order to avoid editing dates in a Web 1.0 type of widget.

      	OpenOffice "Writer" Export: Invoices can now be exported in
	"Writer" format. In the future we might also add a Writer to PDF
	converter in order to create PDF.

      *	Grouped invoice items:
      	Create an invoice for a main project that contains grouped &
	accumulated invoice elements of positions from sub-projects

	management. A Perl REST client is available in
	/intranet-rest/perl-client-examples/ showing access to ]po[
	projects. ]po[ partner Winzentis is developing an iPhone App
	using the REST interface.

      * Resource Management Package:
	This package currently contains only a single resource report
	which replaces the V3.4 /intranet-ganttproject/gant-resources-cube.
	The new report:
	* fixes a bug of the older report (related to the maximum
	  length of the URL),
	* provides better performance (now allows for hundreds of
	  projects and users) and
	* integrates absences into the display.

Bug Fixes

V3.5 is mainly a bug-fix release of V3.4, so literally hundreds
of fixes have been applied.

	x3 on a number of frequently used pages), SQL optimizations
	(speedup x10 on some reports, x2 speedups on other pages) and
	improved support for parallelization on multi-core processors).

      * Integration of Dynamic Workflow:
	The Petri-Net Workflow was already part of V3.2. In V3.4 we
	have extended the number of objects to which you can attach
	a workflow and we provide default workflows for budgets,
	projects, absences and timesheets.

Major Enhancements:

      * Added fields "delivery address" and "contact person" in
	financial document creation and editing pages.
      * Added separate counters for financial document numbers (invoices,
	quotes and purchase orders). The old configuration (a single

	when taking the system productively
      * "Search" field now clears up when clicking on it (if Full-Text
