Sugar Open Source 3.5.1c Available for Download

Sugar Suite v3.5.1c
November 2, 2005

Our goal continues to be to build the customer relationship management system
that you have always wanted, so your input is vital. Based on your input we have
provided important bug fixes in 3.5.1c that continue to enhance the stability of
Sugar Suite.

One item of particular note in 3.5.1c is a resolution to a problem with Sugar Suites
handling of Daylight Savings Time (DST). It is important to upgrade to patch 3.5.1c
in order for task, meeting and call records to properly display the due date. See
below for details.

The Sugar Team

Note: To install 3.5.1c, you must first have 3.5.1, 3.5.1a or 3.5.1b installed.
Then use the Upgrade Wizard in the Admin console to apply the 3.5.1c patch.

Note: Please read through the 3.5.1b release notes below as all notes apply to
3.5.1c as well.

Fixed: The user's time was not being properly calculated in timezones
east of GMT that observe Daylight Savings. [2582]

Note: To install 3.5.1b, you must first have 3.5.1 or 3.5.1a installed. Then
use the Upgrade Wizard in the Admin console to apply the 3.5.1b patch.

Note: In Sugar Suite 3.5.0, the storing of dates was changed to always store using
UTC or otherwise known as GMT date/time. However, the algorithm for Daylight
Savings Time did not accurately correct for tasks, calls or meeting due dates that
were scheduled to be due accross a daylight savings time boundry. We have changed
the algorithm to correctly take the user's Daylight Savings preference and timezone
into account.

This issue only applies to Sugar Suite 3.5.0 and 3.5.1.

Install this patch on your system. Once it is installed, you will need to go
to the Admin console and click on Repair to apply the Daylight Savings Time fix.
On this screen you will:
1) Optionally set the timezone for all users. If the admin does not set the timezone,
for all users, each user will select his timezone the next time he logs in.
2) Update all task, call and meeting due dates to accurately reflect
Daylight Savings Time. While this step is optional, it is highly recommended that
you do this step.
3) Implement the new Daylight Savings algorithm.

Note: To install 3.5.1a, you must first have 3.5.1 installed. Then use the
Upgrade Wizard in the Admin section to apply the 3.5.1a patch.

Note: Admin users need to log out after "Clear Chart Data Cache" and "Rebuild
.htaccess file" scripts are run through Repair section, in order for the
Warning messages to disappear.
