0.9.4 'Countach' maintenance release v1

This maintenance release incorporates fixes that have been addressed since version 0.9.4.

Main Features added

This release re-introduces PHP 5.5 support after community requests. The new support envelope is from PHP 5.5 through to PHP 5.6.27


This release includes updates to address the following;

  • When creating a Job order, OpenCATS would show incorrect contact details which are not for that company by default when creating a new job in a Company.
  • Some pages would be inaccessible due to an ACL configuration issue.
  • Some pages would be inaccessible due to LDAP configuration.
  • The link to 'CATS Professional Version' has been removed (no longer exists)
  • a bug which caused newly created tasks to have a time of 00:00hrs has been corrected (thanks @wjcheers )

Full details and links to the changed code are in the release below.


Upgrading from previous versions is supported in the following scenarios;
in all circumstances take full system backups before any upgrade
upgrade from 0.9.1a or later by the following steps.

  • Check that you meet the new minimum requirements. Note that opencats 0.9.4-1 will not install unless you meet the minimum PHP requirement.
