Snipe-IT v4.6.0 Released


This release fixes a few regression issues from the last few releases related to checkin/checkout email notifications and assets pending acceptance.

We also discovered and fixed an issue with authorization gates that would erroneously display a “checkin” button for license seats that were not actually checked out if a non-admin user had a particular set of granular permissions. Clicking on that “checkin” button would result in a “whoops” error, since it was trying to checkin an asset that wasn’t checked out in the first place.

We’ve added a nicer UI on the asset and license file upload interface as well, which will now show you the names of the files you’re uploading.

A new logging table has been added to track login attempts (successful and unsuccessful), although there isn’t a UI that exposes that just yet. (Next release.)

And finally, we’ve cleaned up the Low Inventory email report and the Expiring Assets email report.

IMPORTANT: This will be one of the final releases of Snipe-IT that will work with PHP5. Future versions of Snipe-IT will require PHP 7.1.3 or greater. Please start upgrading your versions of PHP to 7.1.3 to prepare for the next release. There may be a few small bug fix releases before Snipe-IT v5, but you should start preparing now. Seriously.

Known Issues

Users running MariaDB 10.2.7 and later may have an issue upgrading or installing, due to a change in the way MariaDB stores null defaults. This issue will be fixed once the open pull request in the Doctrine repo is merged and a new version of Doctrine is released with these fixes. You can read more about that issue here.
