cvs21606

cvs21873

cvs21787

cvs21150, cvs21155, cvs21157

cvs21337
Bug Fixes
Traction no longer eats whitespace after tags, which could result in strange truncation after certain tags.
cvs21610
Fixed problem where words separated only by HTML content could be concatenated before being entered into fulltext index, resulting in missed search hits. An index rebuild corrects the problem.
cvs21648
Several compatibility improvements to Rich Text Editing
cvs21583, cvs21597, cvs21598,
Edit attachments dialog now works on IE 5.5
cvs21595

cvs21139
Report friendly error if an attempt to post a personal note can not be handled because the user doesn't have a personal project
Fixed mechanism for defaulting to memory based fulltext index. If the default was chosen, the disk-based index may have been used, even though the interface indicated the memory based index was in use. Explicitly selecting memory-based always worked correctly.
cvs21756
Now PDF export prints entry-level comments in addition to item-level comments.
cvs21758
Removed references to unsupported viws

Print version is only shown if the view file explicitly asks for it
cvs21625
Traction now itemizes DIV elements
cvs21770
Email completer now completes only on semicolon or space. Comma and space no longer accept a setting. This fixes completion on friendly names like "lastname, firstname".
cvs21839
To improve HTML cleanup, Traction ignores whitespace between consecutive BR tags.
cvs21771
In Principal Details, don't print that a Traction group is a member of itself
cvs21201
XML Encode email headers so that friendly names work correctly
