Does your Redmine/MySQL installation support emoji? If you post a text with emoji or some other special UTF-8 character(s) and get an error, most probably you experience the well-known 4-byte UTF-8 problem. This problem should be resolved by migrating your Redmine database to new file and column formats. You'll find details (and how to check if your Redmine is affected) in the article:

Do you want Redmine to deliver attachments in email notifications instead of just links to them? Maybe, you want inline images to be always visible in such notifications? What about incoming emails? Do you have issues importing attachments from incoming emails? Or, maybe, you want inline images in such emails to be imported and embedded correctly? Read about all this in my article.

Redmine 3.3.x celebrated the 10th anniversary of Redmine. It comes with the following noticable features:

- It's now possible to have a special "+" menu item in the project menu, that allows to create new issues, documents, Wiki pages and so on. This new menu item replaces the old "New issue", if enabled.

- The jsToolbar CodeRay extension plugin, that is reviewed in the book (page 284), is no longer needed, as Redmine 3.3 now comes with a native toolbar button, that helps inserting code blocks for programming languages quickly and easily.

- It's now possible to configure issue management permissions (such as view, create, comment and delete) for each tracker separately.

- Redmine now sends notifications to all administrators, when some security-related settings are changed by one of them.

The book is about a project hosted on Redmine, and the project is about the book. But, what if the project for the second edition will be online?..

Things, that did not get into the Chapter 2 of the second edition:

DevOpera and Claudio Alarcon prepared Vagrant boxes that run Redmine 2.4. The Claudio's box is based on Ubuntu 14 and DevOpera's boxes - on CentOS 6 and Ubuntu 12.

Vagrant is a tool, that allows to create server images, which can be easily deployed to virtual machines or Amazon EC2.

Ok... So, Debian's Redmine 3.0 is not really 3.0! In fact, it's only 25% of 3.0 - i.e., just 2.5 ported to Rails 4, not even 2.6... Going to refer to it as 2.5d ("d" for Debian).

It's fantastic! Redmine installation with just one click! A little bit bad, that it's 2.5, but anyway...

Was going to create an Ubuntu droplet for Redmine installation and found Redmine droplet (based on Ubuntu 14.04)! Redmine installation was never easier.

Puma is a new player in Ruby application servers' world. Forked from Mongrel. As I remember, Mongrel could serve as an application server and a web server/load balancer alone, if I'm not mistaken? Can Puma do the same?..

Nice to know, that Markdown became a native Redmine formatter! This changes everything: now I would recommend to use this formatter for fresh Redmine installations.

I never used Textile anywhere else besides Redmine! Github, StackOverflow, Slack - all Markdown.
