]po[ Version 4.0.3.5.0

This third "beta" version of the V4.0 release includes a number of open issues and several planned features are not yet finished. Please see the project_open_roadmap for a detailed list of planned V4.0 features. Compare with:

Known Issues

  • MS-Project Round-Trip Integration (incomplete functionality/bug):
    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.
    • A new "MS-Project Warnings" functionality checks imported project plans for consistency and allows to take actions in ]po[ in order to restore consistency. However, this functionality is still lacking appropriate permissions.

V4.0 Planned Features Not Included Yet 

  • Step-By-Step Configuration Wizard:
    To guide the administrator through the setup of the system:
    • Include all important setup steps and indicators for each setup step.
    • Data Setup: Import users, import projects, import customers and providers, import departments, ...
    • Process Setup: Enable and disable processes 

V4.0 Features Partially Finished

  • 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.
    • The "System Configurator" is available now in Admin -> System Config ->Export Configuration and Import Configuration
    • Deleting parameters and other configuration elements is not yet supported. It is unclear at the moment if this is a desired feature or not.

  • Funambol integration:
    The integration with Funambol allows to sync ]po[ tasks and contacts with Outlook, mobile devices and other PIM applications.
    • The basic functionality is working and allows to sync ]po[ tickets with the Funambol database.
    • Installation and configuration of the Funambol integration currently requires certain knowledge about Funambol, PostgeSQL and ]po[.
    • We would have to write documentation on how to setup a Funambol integration.

  • SLA Management and improved Helpdesk (Enterprise Edition):
    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.
    • Basic functionality is working.
    • We need to document the setup of SLA parameters.

  • 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 ]po[.
    • The import of CVS commits is working.
    • The setup of the integration still requires knowledge of ]po[ and needs the help of a ]po[ consultant
    • We need to document how to setup an integration.
  • System Configurator:
    We want to update the existing "SysConfig Wizard" to include several "templates" for specific application scenarios, in addition to the existing configuration options.
    • Demo-Servers for each template:
      Each template should be associated to a demo_server@project-open.net  and a page in the project-open.com Web-site describing the template.
  • Localization:
    The translations from V3.5 are still available and cover >90% of all translation strings. However, the following work still has to be done for each language:
    • Revise the glossary for each language
    • Complete the outstanding translations
    • Revise all critical terms with each translation team.
