The Bricolage team is pleased to announce the release of Bricolage-Devel
1.5.2, a release candidate for what will soon become Bricolage
1.6.0. Users of 1.5.1 are strongly encouraged to upgrade to 1.5.2, as
assets have an unfortunate habit of disappearing from workflow in 1.5.1.
In addition to all of the new features and bug fixes from the 1.5.0 and
1.5.1 releases, this version of the open-source content management
system fixes several significant bugs and tweaks a few important
features. The most significant changes include:
* Out of the box, the Story Editors, Media Producers, and Template
Developers groups now have READ permission to access members of
the "All Categories" and "All Elements" groups, which allow them
to actually create assets based on elements and within
* Workflow and Desk permissions are a little more sensible
now. CREATE permission can be granted for the start desk in each
workflow, instead of for the entire workflow. This allows a
lower permission to be set on the workflow (e.g., READ), and
then higher permissions on the individual desks in the workflow.
* New "Tuning" sections have been added to Bric::DBA.
* The default required length for usernames and passwords has been
changed from 6 to 5. This is to make dealing with the default
"admin" login easier.
* It is once again possible to delete elements when they are not
associated with any story or media asset.
* Bric::Config now does its best to find a workable httpd.conf
during "make test".
* Previews of assets that are not checked out work again.
* Workflow and desk permissions relative to the assets they
contain are now restored to their previous behavior. Desks no
longer simply inherit the permission granted on any of the
workflows they're in. This issue was resolved by creating a new
secret asset group ID for each workflow.
* Assets will no longer appear to randomly disappear from

this release gives every appearance of being as stable as any previous
release of Bricolage, it does contain a fair bit of new code that needs
to be put through the ringer. It is, however, feature complete for
1.6.0, which we expect to release in the second week of April.
