Please see the disclaimer before using the information presented here!
V1 Hotfix 1 (10181)
1421 - Linux: LDAP query if no name available in CDR
Ticket #63134. If the CDR contains no name on it, make a LDAP query to the PBX before writing the CDR into the database.
Try with OPENLDAP library.
1458 - reporting callback request from mypbx may crash with uninitialized reporting config
Ticket #63709. If one has never configured replication or ldap for Reporting, a reporting callback request from mypbx won't work (the process crashes).
This is fixed now by checking a config parameter.
1482 - reporting: added delete tag in application xml file
Ticket #63936. delete tag defines which files/directories must be deleted during uninstall
1624 - reporting: allow two or more LDAP configurations to have same PBX name
Ticket #65253. it is needed if you have more than one trunk.
1479 - Reporting: better visibility of replication status
Ticket #63920. The connection status to the configured replication server is now shown.
The last run is now also shown, even if there was no successful database connection.
1614 - reporting: conn, call and billing time calculation
Ticket #65146. billing calls are those having "from", "ct" or "cf" as dir attribute in cdrs. So far we have only considered calls with a setup-from as first event but "ct" and "cf" calls can present a setup-to event and they must be charged too.
all times must be ended with the first disc event.
conn time must not be counted after a transfer-from or cf-from event.
1641 - reporting: diagnostics page available with logs/rpcap
Ticket #65365. The diagnostics page with reporting related log files and rpcap functionality is now also available on the reporting web site.
1583 - reporting: download xml report if it has an invalid format
Ticket #64882. we offer now a link to download the xml report if it has an invalid format and therefore cannot be displayed by the browser.
1523 - reporting: if conn to/from event present, conn-duration must be at least one
Ticket #64267. Sometimes conn event and disc/rel event present the same time. Maybe, this should be changed in PBX but we check it anyway.
Connected time must be at least 1. This is also applicable for billing.
1615 - reporting: improvements on xml/pdf representation
Ticket #65151. we usually use information on the alarm event but conn event normally contains more data. Check which one is better.
pdf looks strange if LDAP returns large strings
1586 - reporting: LDAP: add Name and Number attributes
Ticket #64919. we have added two new fields for Name and Number Attributes in the LDAP configuration.
So far we had just used "displayName" as Name attribute and "mobile,telephoneNumber and HomePhone" as Number attributes.
1605 - reporting: mypbx missed calls wrong for multiple registrations
Ticket #65103. If one user has multiple registrations, missed calls were recognized, although the calls has been answered.
Calls from other registrations are disregarded now.
1471 - reporting: process.fcgi crashes with filters containing a remote number condition
Ticket #63878. forgot to open parenthesis
conn_length was also forgotten to change to conn_duration
1481 - reporting: replication not running ssl
Ticket #63933. configure postgresql to run ssl during replication. We will use the web server certificate.
1581 - Reporting: separate authentication for reporting web access
Ticket #64875. It is now possible to configure a separate authentication to the innovaphone reporting web site.
1608 - reporting: show call duration time instead of conn duration time in report
Ticket #65132. As the whole call flow is shown in the report, showing the call duration makes more sense.
1685 - reporting: show only one CDR for transfer/forward calls per user
Ticket #65820. Currently both generated CDRs for a user of a transfer or forward call are shown. Diversions are now divided in two CDRs, one showing the whole call flow and another containing billing information, which will not be shown in call lists.
1626 - reporting: suppress last digits of called/calling party for external calls
Ticket #65259. allow to suppress last digits of called/calling party for external calls. It can be configured how many digits must be replaced with a '*'.
1654 - Reporting: transfers on a slave PBX will now generate a new event: transfer-remote
Ticket #65475. when a transfer event happens on a slave PBX, it cannot be known the status of the call afterwards. This new event indicates this situation and a connected status will be shown in the report.
1469 - reporting: wrong remote party in some transfer and forward events
Ticket #63819. We assumed that the remote party does not change after transfer/forward event and that the next event after those contains more information over the remote party but this is wrong since the remote party may change.
V1 Hotfix 2 (10197)
1785 - Cumulative hotfix installation script didn't apply second hotfix
Ticket #66917. As the version of the previously installed hotfix hasn't been set properly.
1781 - Reporting: check if database is being restored before writing a CDR
Ticket #66757. avoid writing a CDR to the DB if it is being restored since this could corrupt the DB.
This CDR will be sent by the PBX again since Linux is responding with 500 HTTP Error Code.
1806 - Reporting: current password was not checked before setting a new password
Ticket #67386. we used localhost and given password to make a connection to the db but localhost needs no password.
1743 - reporting: postgresql-8.4 debian package update
Ticket #66271. debian update for postgresql 8.4.
V1 Hotfix 3 (10201)
1880 - Duplicated report lines on certain filter options
Ticket #68123. Certain filter options caused duplicated lines in a report.
This has been fixed by changing the query.
1926 - Reporting: ldap results were not escaped
Ticket #68654. any string must be 'postgresql' escaped before inserting it into the DB.
V1 Hotfix 4 (10237)

Ticket #71957. Adding or removing a line of a dynamic list doesn't trigger the jump to the page top any more.
2123 - Increased maximum height of filter list
Ticket #71865. Currently only four filter options can be viewed at a time.
With the fix, the lists height increases from 2 until 16 items until the scrollbar of the list is enabled.
2075 - invalid log file entries for mypbx requests if reporting database is not running
Ticket #71277. Invalid log file entries have been written for mypbx requests, if the reporting database was down.
2121 - linux: added non-blocking option on flock() call for log files
Ticket #71838. The flock() call was eventually blocking if the lock could not be acquired. If we do not get the lock after ten attempts, the log trace will be lost.
2112 - possibility to clear log files
Ticket #71714. Log files can be cleared now.
Just system specific log files can't be cleared.
2069 - Possibility to clear the call list in mypbx

V1 Hotfix 6 (10282)
2357 - check if reporting application already exists on reporting application install
Ticket #75828. This check hasn't been done yet and caused application issues, if someone installs an already existing reporting application again.
2349 - LDAP servers now support object filters
Ticket #75697. This is needed, if an innovaphone PBX is used as phone book.
2344 - mypbx call list query optimized for speed

2387 - Reporting: pdf reports showing connected duration instead of call duration
Ticket #76303. both times are normally equal, that's why we did not see the bug.
2343 - reporting: possible buffer overrun reading system processes
Ticket #75645. when restoring db from a backup, we do not accept cdrs. We look the running processes searching from "db-restore" in files whose size is null. I allocated a 1024 bytes thinking that was enough, apparently not.

An expires header is now sent within the response.
2422 - Reporting: Localised date and time format in myPBX call list
Ticket #76779. Call list shall contain localised date and time. Also today's and yesterday's date should be replaced by words.
2430 - reporting: make LDAP queries for Trunk Line Objects
Ticket #76906. we now see in reports in the "Left" column "external number Amt" for the Amt object but this external number may appear in LDAP. If this number is found in LDAP, we replace previous value with the LDAP result.
