ProjectBench - OK, Where Do I Get It?
Where you're getting it it's your own business :), but if you're talking about projectbench you're in the right spot. Before installing, please allow me to suggest you read the Installation and Administration Guide. It will mostly likely answer all questions you'll have during the installation phase.

This is a list of changes that happened since the last release. I personally always like to read them to bring me up to speed on what's new, fixed and improved.
Version 0.4 - November 18, 2004
- Improvements to the Printable list of documents. Now it's a combo (less space on the screen) and it supports two extra options: Text - Comma Separated (CSV) and XML Format.
- You're gonna like this one I promise: on the Edit Issue page, the Description and the Resolution fields are now collapsable/expandable. What that means to you is that if you have a really long description or a long resolution, you can click on the image to the right of each field and toggle the display. Even more the fields are now capable of displaying richer markup.
- Fixed several issues related to the Module field not getting saved when creating an issue and to the settings of the Edit Issue page not getting saved either.
Version 0.3 - November 12, 2004
- All pages have now been switched to templates, which should make the UI more consistent and easier to change
- Improved user authentication means if you check the
Remember my ID on this computeron the login screen, you won't have to log on again for about 2 weeks.
- Also improved is the Guest access. In previous version, when an unauthenticated user attempted
to directly access a page, projectbench would automatically assume that user is guest and behave
as such. That has hurt people that bookmarked
http://server/projectbench/as they had to log out and then log in with their respective user names. Now everybody has to pass by the login screen, even guest users (except for the persistent logins).
- projectbench now can remember some the values from the previous created issue.
Really helps when you're working on a single project to have the project, version, etc
prefilled as you create a new issue. Head on ober to My Settings and select
Remember values from previous new entry. This only affects new issues.
Version 0.2 - October 12, 2004
- Multiple custom defined filters for View Issues (save your filters and apply them with ease)
- Confirmation of issue creation/update (with ID and link back)
- Multiple options for what to do after saving an issue (three options: Go to View Issues, Add New, Stay in Edit Mode)
- Issue navigation on all single issue screens (Previous and Next options)
- Shortcut keys for common options (
Alt+N- New Issue,
Alt+V- View Issues,
Alt+F- Search issues,
Alt+#- issue #,
Alt+[- Previous issue,
Alt+]- Next Issue)
- Dynamic setting of some issue fields (e.g. prompting to set the Fixed on date when the issue's Status is set to Closed, etc)
- Tracks current row in View Issues (easier to follow some of the right columns)
- More of a bug fix, but setting a project manager for in the Project Administration section automatically adds that person to the list of users with access to the project.
- Not as visible but equally important, projectbench is switching little by little to using templates. This will make future changes easier to implement because of code/presentation separation.
Version 0.1 - July 25, 2004
First release; changes from previous version, workbench v0.11 are too many to list. If you're familiar with workbench, you might want to check the Features page for a list of what projectbench can do, or see a Comparison that includes workbench among other projects.
