Final buildnumers sometimes other then latest Beta

January 3, 2013 by Remon van Gijn   Comments (0)

, , , ,

At times from internal or external people we get the question why the build numbers deviate between the latest build and the latest beta.It would be good and pure practice to only promote released Beta's to Finals, from a release perspective. But on the other hand releasing a Beta + the usual grease period would again mean a delay for usage of the large amount of fixes in the release being deployed. And what is it we change after a beta that causes the rebuild?Being a progressive company, and... Read full post

Securing WebApp

December 13, 2012 by Ivo Timmermans   Comments (2)

, , ,

While we take care that the WebApp contains no programming flaws that can reduce security, there are a few things that you, as system administrator, can do to improve security. The most obvious one is to only allow access to WebApp when using SSL, but there is more. For this article, we will assume that you serve WebApp using Apache, but other HTTP servers have similar options.

Use TLS/SSL, get an official certificate
Anyone knows you should use SSL, and of course you can run a web server... Read full post

WebApp: iCal Im/Exporter

December 9, 2012 by Chris   Comments (0)

Hi everyone,
today I've released a new version of my "calenderimporter" plugin.  The name is a little bit misleading, because I have implemented a new feature: the ical exporter.  You are now able to export every calendar completely to an ics file.

 At the moment you can only export the whole calendar. But I'm trying to integrate the same selection mechanism as in the importer, to filter the events that will be exported.

The importer can also import all events with just... Read full post
