openATTIC 2.0.7 beta has been released

We are pleased to welcome you to the first openATTIC release for this year and are happy to announce openATTIC 2.0.7 beta! You may wonder: "What happened to version 2.0.6"? Due to a missing code merge, we decided to do 2.0.7 right away - sorry for the noise.

Some highlights:

For this release, we integrated the Django REST framework token authentication into our REST API, so you can request your authentication token via the API now and use it in scripts or other applications instead of the user name and password.

For some time already, we are using jshint to keep our frontend code clean. In openATTIC 2.0.6/2.0.7 we have added jscs to match all of our coding conventions (which will be publicly available soon). In a breath we have cleaned up the frontend code a lot.

We also updated and extended the documentation in order to make processes and how to's more helpful.

We would like to thank everyone who contributed to this release! Special thanks to Lars Marowsky-Brée and Joshua Schmid for giving us constructive feedback!

Please note that 2.0.7 is still a beta version. As usual, handle with care and make sure to create backups of your data!
