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
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
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
#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
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.
