    Hi guys,

    I'm pleased to announce the immediate release of Airtime 2.5.1! This update includes a number of important bugfixes to the scheduler and calendar, which particularly improve the experience for users working in different timezones. We've also included some performance optimizations and minor graphical improvements to the calendar. 

    This update will be pushed to our APT repository within the next 48 hours.

    New Dependencies

    This new version of Airtime requires php-apc, as a temporary measure to improve performance by reducing hits to the database. When upgrading, a small two line change should automatically be made to the airtime.ini PHP configuration file in /etc/php5/conf.d/airtime.ini. This change will be automatically made if doing a manual upgrade/installation with the airtime-full-install script or by the Debian packages in our APT repository. If for some reason you are following a different installation procedure, please consult the airtime.ini file in git.

    Known Issues

    - Repeated shows from the past may show up when you scroll to a new calendar page, due to a past bug which incorrectly saved the end date of repeating shows. This can be solved by left-clicking on the first unwanted event, and selecting "Delete->Delete This Instance and All Following". The "end date" of the repeating show will be saved correctly and it will no longer propagate into the future again unless you tell it to.

    - Running with a stock PHP 5.5 is not supported, unless you somehow managed to get php-apc installed. We will work towards this as we approach the next Ubuntu LTS release in April 2014.


    Here's a full list of changes in this release (Airtime 2.5.1):
