Summary0008651: Display release date in changelog for released version
DescriptionA nice option would be to append the release date after the version number in the change log entry. Currently we use the notes to describe this, but that's redundant, as the releases have a date field; why not make it automatic and just use that?

I attached a mockup showing one potential way to show release dates for versions on the Change Log page. This raster also includes a total issue count to quickly give an idea of how many fixes/enhancements were addressed in a particular version (0005158).


Oops! Just realized I forgot to extend the "=" under the version title to the end of the release date.

Sounds good to me. Let's see others feedback.

I'm very interested in such a feature.

The problem is that currently (Mantis 1.1.0 is installed on mantis_project_version_table.date_order is used to order released. And the date I set is absolutely not the release date (I want a sort order different because I don't want to mix branches).

so I suggest a new mantis_project_version_table.order (int) + mantis_project_version_table.released_date

Hi Herringm,

I've implemented your patch in to Mantis 1.1.1 and it works fine so far.

The only thing I had to change was to remove the "strtolower" functions in the changelog_page.php, because german umlauts would not be converted correctly and are shown as carets in the page.

Thanks for the patch,

If you have the mbstring extension installed give multi-byte function overloading a try. Instead of calling the single-byte function the multi-byte equivalent will be called which should be able to handle the umlauts. [^] [^]
