Release notes Description
OpenProject 10.6.0 What is new for OpenProject 10.6.0?
OpenProject 10.6.0 BIM edition for construction project management What is new for the construction project management for the building industry in OpenProject 10.5.0?

The new release of the open source project management software brings improved table formatting, quicker time logging, the Slovenian translation, better overview over activities and much more usability improvements and bug fixes.

Better styling of tables with improved table formatting options

With the new release of OpenProject you can now customize your tables in the text editor even more. When integrating a table in a work package description, a meeting, the wiki or news, format it the way you want to. The new additional options are:

  • limiting of the table’s and cell’s width,
  • choose a color for the grid and the cell’s background (HEX/XSL or standard color palette),
  • padding in cells,
  • alignment within the cell, and
  • defining a CSS rule to break long words in cells.


Quicker time logging on work packages

From now on, time logging is even quicker. You won’t have to leave your current work environment to log time. For example, directly in the work package you will find an icon to log time. When you click on it, you can log your time in a pop-up window.


Also, you can log time to a work package directly from your work package table view if you include the SPENT TIME as a table column. Clicking on the Log time will also open a pop-up window to book your spent time.


Support of Slovenian language

We are very happy that OpenProject is now 100% translated into Slovenian. Zabavaj se!


Attribution of cards to a project

OpenProject 10.6 will upgrade the card view of work packages. To make clear what card belongs to what project, the project name will be shown on the card.


Improved assignee board if there are no members in a project

If you are creating an agile boards by assignees, you will get notified if there are no members in your project. You will also get notified if you are trying to add another assignee list to your board even though there is no more member left.

Assignee board notification

Various usability improvements and bug fixes

Furthermore, the styling of the news widget on the project overview page as well as the start page has been improved. Going forward, the Activity module is only showing one activity per minute per user per work package and type of change. That means the changes per minute are aggregated.
