Version 1.2

Today we’re releasing version 1.2 of the FixMyStreet platform. The AMI has been updated and the install script will automatically now install this version.

The main items in this release are things prompted by requests on our mailing list :-)

  • Postfix is now installed as part of the install script, or in the AMI. This means email should work out of the box. For anyone already installed, you can run the commands in the GitHub ticket.

  • A new configuration option MAPIT_ID_WHITELIST has been added, to restrict usage to the IDs specified, if given. This means Claudio, who emailed last week, could have [ 239540 ] as his MAPIT_ID_WHITELIST, and then reports could only be made within the Marche region of Italy. We already use this new option ourselves on where before it was hard-coded in the code.

  • Other things include being able to zoom in further on OSM maps, and HTML pages are now being gzipped.

Lastly, as you can see this site has had a redesign to make it more friendly, and we’ve added some more documentation about e.g. updating an AMI instance to a newer version. If there’s anything unclear, please do ask on the mailing list or submit an issue or pull request on GitHub.

If you have any questions, or problems installing the code, please do get in touch, or post on our mailing list.
