I'm pleased to announce the release of RT 3.0.11. This version of RT
features numerous small bugfixes and improvements.  Of particular interest:

 * If users who don't have the right to modify user group
   memberships were allowed to create users and did so, users could
   be created without membership in the necessary "Everyone" and
   "Privileged" or "Unprivileged" groups.  If this has happened to
   your site, the created users won't be able to create or update
   tickets. Ruslan Zakirov developed a tool to walk the database of
   sites affected by this issue. You can grab a copy of his fix at
   RT 3.0.11 includes bullet-proofed code to protect against this happening
   in the future.

 * RT is now _much_ better about cleaning up temporary files and directories. 
   In our testing, RT cleanly removed all temporary files and directories.

A full changelog follows.

Changes since RT 3.0.11

Web UI

	RT is now more careful about the URLs of pages it sends you to after
	a "quick search"

	Fix to enable searching Cc and AdminCc from Ruslan

	Fix for proper display of ScripId when editing scrips from Ruslan

	Added a patch from Dirk Pape to hide disabled groups by default

	#5278: Made the length of the "MyRequests" list configurable in
	RT's config file

	Fixed a spelling error: Separate, not seperate.  Applied patch
	in ticket #5319.

	Fixed possible corruption after repeated searches, from Ruslan

	Only show users, not groups in the "About this requestor" box

	Pulled in QueryString from RT 3.1+ for REST (Atom) API support

Email handling

	RT previously split stored headers on newlines. The new regexp
	better matches what the RFC says it should

	#5135: RT previously generated Email subject lines that violated
	RFC 2047

Commandline interface

	#5189: updated bin/rt to support default query and order (#4638)
	cli cookie handling improved from Muncus

	Corrected a section of the documentation for rt per Ticket #4618
	#5303: Added support for piping reply messages from STDIN


	#5238: [rt-users] Patch: Mason Profiing under FastCGI

	Added back a missing test file

	DTRT with autocreating user real names and email addresses when
	adding watchers (not just when the user is created via email).
	We were needlessly including the "Principals" table in a query. It
	hurt postgres perf significantly

	Altered a Groups join to be a bit more efficient

	Backported ticket searching fixes from 3.1;

	Fixed an issue that could cause multiline rt-send-cc and
	rt-send-bcc headers to be truncated

	#5592: Don't display an empty RT-Send-Bcc header if there were
	no bccs

	Clean up temporary files more agressively

	Users->Limit should specify ENTRYAGGREGATOR.  This was always
	true, but DBIx::SearchBuilder makes it obvious.

	RT now handles localization slightly better when there aren't
	yet any users.

	Fix for a false positive error about directory permissions when
	opening the rt logfile from Ruslan

	A patch to generate better SQL when searching on attachment
	content. Backported from 3.1

	Backport Date->W3CDTF from rt-3.3 for REST 2.0.

	Applied a patch from #5286, from Paulo Matos <pjsm at fct.unl.pt>
	to standardize how users are autocreated

	Reworked RT::User->Create logic to better handle error
	cases. Previously, if users who didn't have the right to modify
	others' group memberships created users, the new users could be
	created as "orphans"

	Syslog configuration is now much more flexible and can be
	controlled from RT's configuration file (#4717)


	Applied Paulo Matos's <pjsm at fct.unl.pt> patch from #5401.
	Support System Role groups in rt-setup-database.

	RT requires perl 5.8.3 to work correctly. The dependency checking
	tool has been enhanced to enforce this requirement.
