Issues Resolved

Issue 448: When changing time zone in Squert, it needs to revert to UTC when requesting transcripts

Release Notes

  • When you update the package, it will copy new files into place and then display "Updating database".  Please do not cancel or interrupt this process.
  • You no longer have to hardcode your Sguil credentials in config.php.
  • You may need to Shift-Reload in your browser and/or empty browser cache to ensure you're running the latest Squert javascript.
  • Timestamps are displayed in UTC by default, but you can change this by clicking the arrows to the right of the timeline.  De-select UTC, then specify your local timezone offset.  Then click the "save TZ" button to save your preference into the database and click "Update" to refresh the page with the new timestamps.

Do not cancel or interrupt the database update
