Reports have moved

We have moved reports from the dropdown menu on the Browse Project > Summary tab to a panel on the same tab, so that they are more accessible.

New plugin points for the User Profile page

For the developers, we have implemented new plugin points for the web panels in the User Profile page. You can override the default 'Details', 'Preferences' and 'Assigned Open Issues per Project' web panels as well as add your own custom web panels.
