Version 1.8.3

by Matthew, on 3 June 2016

Passing Light

We’ve released version 1.8.3 of FixMyStreet.

For developers, the main improvement in this version is the great speed up to CSS compilation by moving from sass to libsass.

We’ve fixed some map issues, getting the Google Maps layer working again and dealing with tap sensitivity on some devices.

The admin interface gets a bit of love, adding common search boxes to the index page, allowing change of email to an existing address, and speeding up photo removal.

Upgrading notes

If your templates aren’t kept in the main repository, there are a couple of things to be aware of with this release:

  • If you’ve used the cf class, you’ll need to rename it to clearfix.
  • If you have customised any of the email templates that use <?=...?> style variables (e.g. alert emails, questionnaire, submit), you’ll need to rewrite them to use the standard [%...%] variables.

See the full list of changes over on GitHub.

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