I'm abashed to announce announce the release of Bricolage 1.6.4, mere
hours after the release of 1.6.3. This maintenance release addresses a
number issues discovered since the release of version 1.6.2, plus one
serious issue in version 1.6.3. Some of the more important changes since
1.6.2 include:

     * Preview works again (it was broken only during 1.6.3's brief

     * Document and contributor type field information (label, options)
       is no longer pushed through Locale::Maketext, thus preventing
       errors when element and contributor type administrators create
       field options with brackets in them.

     * Documents associated with categories that have been deleted will
       once again work properly. Even though a category may be
       deactivated, any documents previously put into that category
       should still work, and still treat the category as a working
       category. And so they do.

     * Permissions granted on the "All" groups work again.

     * Resize now works in super bulk edit.

     * When a template is deployed, Bricolage now checks to see if its
       file name has changed since it was last deployed, and if it has,
       it deletes the old file.

     * Optimized performance of Bric::Dist::Resource queries and wrote
       lots of tests for them.

     * When a story or media document is published, Bricolage now looks
       to see if any files distributed for previous versions of the
       document are no longer associated with the document, and expires
       them if they are. It does so on a per-output channel basis, so
       note that if output channel settings have changed since the
       document was last published, the expiration may miss some stale
       files. The same goes for when destinations are changed. But this
       should cover the vast majority of cases.

     * Text input fields no longer impose a default maximum field
       length. This is so that element fields that have their maximum
       length set to 0 can truly be unlimited in length.

     * Passing an undef via the "workflow__id" parameters to the "list()"
       method of Story, Media, or Template once again causes Bricolage to
       correctly return only those assets that are not in workflow.

     * Extra blank lines between subelement tags in super bulk edit no
       longer causes an error.

     * Searches no longer return unexpected results or all objects when
       pagination is enabled.
