I'm pleased to announce that the first release candidate for RTIR 2.6.0 isnow available for download.
The major change in RTIR 2.6 is improved control of custom fields in RTIR. In earlier releases, all of RTIR's custom fields were prefixed with '_RTIR_'. RTIR 2.6 continues our work to move RTIR to using standard RT APIs and extension mechanisms. It's now easier than ever to add and remove fields in RTIR with fewer side effects and less custom code.
This upgrade is NOT fully automated. It's very important that you validate all custom code stored in RT's database. You can read more about the upgrade procedure in the "UPGRADING" document included in the distribution. If you already have a support contract for your RTIR instance or are interested in picking one up, Best Practical can make staff available to help you plan your upgrade.
RTIR 2.6 is intended for use with RT 3.8.
