IRM 1.5.7 is now available


What's new?

There is so much new stuff in this release it's beyond my meagre abilities
to document it. First and foremost amongst the new features is the
"Devices" system, from Martin Stevens -- this should help a lot of people
add extra fields to the database at runtime, without needing to bloat the
core IRM code. There will probably be plenty of corner cases with the
Devices system, and it's currently undocumented, so submit bug reports and
discuss how it should all work on read more

LDAP support

Sorry for the delay with IRM 1.4.0 -- I've been working on LDAP support of late. Commited the first attempt at LDAP support into CVS (It works with my installation of LDAP), and I want some other developers to look at it (or at least have the opportunity to look at it) before we release and official 1.4.0

Many bug fixes, in fact all known bugs are fixed. Of particular importance is the fix for the "DateEntered not set" bug that would prevent new work requests from being added.

IRM is #3 in the most active projects list.

I don't know how the calculations are done, but it appears we are doing something right with IRM. If you go to the main page at sourceforge (, we are the third most active project today, and have been in the top 15 for the past three or four days.

IRM 1.3.4 build 2001071401 released!

A new build has been released. Changes:

Since build 2001071103:
- Rewrote the section of code that calculates how long a work request has been open -- this is no longer a mysql query -- important for DB compatability.
- Fixed a "add()" function in the Followups class. If a single quote (') was in a followup, the followup was not added and no error was reported.
- Fixed a bug in the "commit()" function with Tracking
- Fixed a bug that caused the CloseDate not to be set when a work request was marked closed. As a result, all work requests marked old in 1.3.4 (prior to build 2001071401) did not get a close date set.
- Fixed the close date display format -- had not been updated to the new display style.
- Fixed an error with batch adding computers to groups.... read more

IRM v. 1.3.3 has been released!

Information Resource Manager (IRM) version 1.3.3 was released today. IRM is a tool designed to aid helpdesks and systems administrators track not only work requests, but also track their inventory of computers, networking equipment, and their software. Important new features in 1.3.3 are a new built in FAQ and a built in Knowledge Base.

Posted by Keith Schoenefeld 2001-05-17

Knowledge Base anyone?

Based on the number of requests I have personally received (and personal need) I am adding a knowledge base and FAQ to IRM 1.3.x. The distinction between the KB and the FAQ is that the KB is accessible by technicians and admins only, the FAQ will be a subset of the KB but will be available to the general public. Configurable nested subcategories will be available. Other small changed will also be made over the next week, and 1.3.3 should be released by Friday.
