Version 1.5

by Matthew, on 20 November 2014

We’ve released version 1.5 of FixMyStreet. This version fully supports the new Long Term Support (LTS) version of Ubuntu, Trusty Tahr 14.04 (the code did already run fine on Ubuntu Trusty if you set it up manually, but now the install script will work and a few other bits have been tidied).

This release comes with a few improvements to the admin interface, including pagination of search results, validation of new categories, and some display enhancements.

We’ve moved the map sidebar to be flush with the window edge, which we think is simpler and easier on the eye, and we’ve continued making the template structure easier to change and override.

We’ve also fixed some bugs, such as map submission not working with JavaScript disabled or unavailable. As another example, we had a report of the Android browser crashing when showing a map page, which we tracked down to the slightly transparent map navigation controls – crashing wasn’t worth this, so now on mobile they’re fully opaque.

From Transifex we’ve added four new languages (as well as updating the existing ones): Albanian, Bulgarian, Hebrew, and Ukranian.
