Great to see things moving forward. Does this version allow skipping date selection?

My question was if it's possible to insert events without listing a date for them. I strongly follow 'when it's ready, it is'.

No this won't be possible for 0.5
This idea came in relatively late in the cycle for 0.5
Also it needs some serious considerations to do it right.

Thanks for your Work! :)

I updated collabtive from 0.4.9.1 to 0.5, and now my adminbutton is gone.
It seems that I am in the USER role now instead of ADMIN.
Is this because you changed the permissionssystem in 0.5?
Anything to look at during update (instead to copy the config.php file)?

Thanks in advance

You shouldn't upgrade production system to the release candidate at all.
Updating has not really been tested at this point.

Some very nice additions to the new version!

Any chance of making SQL queries more ANSI SQL compliant, instead of relying on mysql oddities? For instance, "... the HAVING clause includes a comparison predicate used to eliminate rows after the GROUP BY clause is applied to the result set." A lot of the current SQL queries use HAVING where a simple AND would do, without a GROUP BY clause. Also, having timestamps stored as varchars doesnt bode well when using mathematical operators on the columns (like >= in where clauses).

Should I be posting this somewhere else?
