Version 2.4.1

by Matthew, on 1 October 2018


Today we have released version 2.4.1 of FixMyStreet.

This release contains a wide variety of new features for use by reusers of our software, funded by NDI as part of their FixMyCommunity project; thanks very much to them. It also includes a number of smaller features and bugfixes.

FixMyStreet now comes with a Dockerfile and example Docker Compose setup for use by those tools, and we provide a hosted Vagrant box that can be used also. You can choose to store photos in Amazon S3 rather then the local filesystem, use an external memcache server,

We’ve added a script, cobrand-checks, that will list/diff template changes in core that might need applying to a cobrand, to help with upgrading, and added more checks to our Pull Requests on GitHub to spot included cobrands that need checking with each PR made.

We have sped up fetching full lists of bodies to help installs that have thousands of bodies, sped up the display of /_dev pages, fixed the display of pins on a body page when using Bing or TonerLite maps, and fixed an issue where the from_body field was lost on a user when edited by a non-superuser admin.
