Advertising with no crashes
No, usage of the Advertising plugin did not lead to crashes! But crashes could be experienced on some actions, if the plugin was installed...
There was a minor issue with usage of the Advertising plugin under Redmine 2.5.x. And it was quite insignificant – anyway, I have fixed it.
A much more severe issue was that Redmine sometimes crashed, if the plugin was installed! Thus, it crashed, when a big image was uploaded into an advertisement and when an attempt to... copy a project was made.
Both these issues were found by Minh Thien, who also tracked one of them down. Thanks, Minh!
So, the main reason for this release to come are fixes of these two issues.
