Tellico 3.0 Beta 1 is Available

Tellico 2.9.91, a.k.a. "3.0 Beta 1" is available. This is a beta release, not ready for general use. It depend on Qt5 and many of the KDE Frameworks 5 libraries, including KDELibs4Support. If you're comfortable with self-compiling software and using beta-quality releases, you're welcome to give this a try and let me know of any problems.

The release mechanism has changed, along with a significant amount of the CMake code used for building. Everything seems to work on the KDE CI site, so I'm relatively sure it's buildable, but I'm looking for feedback from anyone who is willing.

As always, back up your data files, including images. Configuration information is automatically migrated from ~/.kde/share/apps/tellico to ~/.local/share/tellico (unless you're setting a different location through the XDG* variables).

Along with the change in platform version, other updates include:

  • Removed the defunct Yahoo! data source
  • Removed the defunct Citebase fetcher
  • Removed the PilotDB exporter (!)
  • Added support for user-defined SRU queries
  • Switched to libdiscid for reading audio CD info
  • Updated the internal libcsv version to 3.0.3
  • Changed UI to include switchable view between icons and detailed list

First Light for Tellico and KDE Frameworks 5

I've started the process of porting Tellico to KDE Frameworks 5. Many things are currently broken, but the main application does compile and show a window! I'm not sure how long it will take to get the first beta release out, but we'll see.

Website Hacked

Recent visitors may have gotten a malware warning when visiting tellico-project.org in the last couple of weeks. Evidently, the website was hacked similar to described here. I took it down to try to figure out what happened, and I appreciate the emails and forum posts from users letting me know.

I'm still not certain of the attack vector. I have a couple other domains shared on the dreamhost account, one of which had old unused installations of gallery and Wordpress. That's my best guess at how the attacker got access.

I've changed my user and database passwords. I've reinstalled the latest versions of Wordpress and Drupal (6.x) in clear directories. I restored to older copies of the databases, checked permissions on all the directories, removed the old gallery installation, and made my best attempt at locking everything down again! I verified the checksums of all the Tellico packages against the copies I have on my local home machine and they have not changed.

With all that, I cross my fingers and hope everything is fixed! My skills and strengths are not in the area of website administration, believe me. So this was a real headache.

  • Fixed bug that always showed checkmark for boolean field values (Bug 283444).
  • Fixed importing of multi-line notes from Alexandria (Bug 289022).
  • Fixed bug with merging entries (Bug 289346).
  • Fixed bug with Cancel not working in the Entry Merge dialog.
  • Fixed broken script for searching Dark Horse Comics.
  • Fixed a crashing bug when using the scanner dialog.
  • Improved support for importing movies and music from Delicious Library.

Update: I didn't realize that I had added code to Tellico that effectively raised the minimum KDE version to 4.6. I didn't intend to do that. If you want to compile on KDE versions earlier than 4.6, please grab this patch.
