FS#496 - 'Released' flag / status level

We encourage our users to look at the issue tracker so they can see what
has been fixed and not keep sending bug reports for a bug which was
fixed just after the last release. In order for them to see those closed
issues, our default view of the bug tracker shows all statuses, but that
then means we can't filter out things that have already been included
in an official release.

I notice a similar thing in your own issue tracker. Having the
percentage-complete updated to 100 on issue closure appears 3 times and
it has already been fixed in HEAD, although it's not in the current

Can I propose another flag 'Released', which means 'I have made it into
the official release'. Closing an issue does not set this flag. You can
then add another filter 'Open & unreleased issues' (bit of a mouthful)
which displays all open issues and any closed issues which aren't yet
available in a public release.

The flag would have to be set manually, or there could be an
administrator function which lets you set the flag for all closed issues
when a release is made.

It could be implemented as another status level as long as it doesn't
interfere with task interdependence.

This sounds to me like a useful feature, if the UI issues can be worked out.

I’d suggest having Open & Unreleased as well as plain old Unreleased, since I’d most likely close an issue when it was fixed, and then before a release, I’d want to check the unreleased changes to make (or compare with) a change log document.

Couldn’t this get handled by the ‘Due in Version’ value rather than adding a new field?

You could get list of unreleased issues by creating a search that includes all tasks with ‘Due in Version’s that are in the future.

Would it be enough just to add an extra option to the ‘Due In Any Version’ dropdown called ‘Due in the Future’? I’m not sure if it would include tasks that don’t have ‘Due in Version’ set or not. I suspect it would be best to include them since tasks already released will most likely have their ‘Due in Version’ set.

That’s a very good idea.

If you do it that way can I also request that when a task is closed, if its ‘Due in version’ field is not already set, it gets set to the next release value. Otherwise we end up with a similar situation to the percent complete field where (in 0.9.7) we have to keep opening closed tasks just to update that field when someone forgets to set it before closing the issue.
