New stable Trac release 0.11.6

Trac 0.11.6 has been released today. It contains two security fixes, a number of performance improvements and lots of bug fixes.

  • Database connection pooling has been re-enabled for SQLite. This requires recent versions of both SQLite and PySQLite, so you may want to update those as well. In particular, the sqlite3 module bundeled with Python 2.6.4 is not sufficient.
  • This release formally deprecates SQLite 2.x and PySQLite 1.x support, and it will be removed altogether in 0.12.
  • Handling of timezones with DST has been fixed. In particular, it should now be possible to close milestones with an immediate completion time even when DST is active.

Only a single release candidate was done this time, despite a few minor issues popping up during testing. We are pretty confident that the fixes were correct, and we didn't want to delay the release any further, so that we could focus on 0.12.

This is likely to be the last release of the 0.11.x series. The focus of development is now on 0.12, which should be released by the end of the year, possibly early January. MultiRepos, here we come!
