      You can get the latest WebParts release here http://www.quest.com/common/registration.aspx?requestdefid=14125 Here is a list of what is new in WebParts 5.1 Configuration Editor tool

      • (Req 3818) The Configuration Editor Tool contains new functionality to mass index discussion lists. This is useful in case of a Notes migration scenario where you migrated multiple discussion lists and you need to index those lists after the migration is done.
      • (CR 73589) The QuestSoftware section editor contains 3 new parameters: Max Rollup Depth, Max Rollup ListCount and Max Query Row Count. These three parameters can be used to restrict how deep the rollup operation should go, how many lists should be included in the rollup operation and the maximum number of rows should be returned during a query to the SharePoint server, respectively. Please see the help file for the Configuration Editor tool for more detail.

      All Web Parts

      • (Req 4086) We added 3 pages to the SharePoint Central Administration to manage the deployment of the web parts. These three pages enable you to select which web parts to deploy in the web application level and site collection level.
      • (Req 3832) We added HideUserGroups and ShowUserGroups attributes to the Custom Actions property in every web part that supports it. These new attributes enable you to show or hide the custom action (context menu item and toolbar button) visibility based on the group membership of the current user.
      • (Req 4004) We upgraded some of our Telerik controls to version Q2 2009. This upgrade affects the qCalendarView, qDiscussionView and qListForm web parts. Please note that the skin files in version Q2 2009 have a new format which is not backward compatible with the Q2 2008 skins. Please note that some of the web parts such as qListView still use Q2 2007 SP1 version and therefore are not affected by this upgrade. Please read the note at the beginning of this release notes regarding this upgrade for more details.
      • (CR 70471) We added new custom action type called ReturnToMasterChart. This custom action can be used to return to the master chart page based on the MCID HTTP parameter.
      • (CR 68292) You can use “.” (single dot) as the List Name property in the qListForm or the ListName attribute in the Viewed Lists property of qListView, qCalendarView, qChartView and qDiscussionView when you place those web parts in AllItems.apsx, NewForm.aspx, EditForm.aspx, DisplForm.aspx or Upload.aspx. The “.” will be interpreted as the name of the list that owns the page. This capability increases the usability factor of your list template because you don’t have to change the name of the list when you instantiate the list template using a different name.

      qListForm

      • (Req 4013) The ability to call a custom action code to initialize one or more fields in the form.

There are four types of conditional behavior that you can define: HideWhen, ShowWhen, EnabledWhen and DisabledWhen. For example, you can define the behavior to show the Resolved By and Resolved Date fields when the Status field is changed to Resolved.
      • (Req 2768) The rich text editor contains the ability to insert an image into the editor. If the image is in your local drive, the Insert Image dialog box will enable you to upload the image as an attachment to the list item.
      • (Req 4012) The qListForm has a new Form Type called CreateDocument. This new Form Type enables you to create a new document based on the template in the content type or external list and to fill in the metadata for the newly created document at the same time.
      • (Req 3202) We added HideUserGroups and ShowUserGroups attributes to the Display Fields property to enable hiding or showing certain fields based on the group membership of the current user.

      Resolved Issues and Enhancements The following is a list of issues addressed and enhancements implemented in this release of Quest Web Parts for SharePoint. CR73635 The Upload Multiple Documents link redirect the user to single file upload when the Show Upload Button property is set to Multiple File Upload only. CR74158 The display format in the Calculated Value is not working. For example, when you specify <%{0:c}Price%> it won’t format the Price field as currency. CR74113 The qListView shows System.Data.DataRowView in the Edit field when it points to a list that is not a document library. CR74145 The qItemDisplay cannot be connected to the qListView using “Send Row To” and “Get Filter From” CR73971 The qListForm does not validate the required multi value lookup field during save. CR73967 The qListForm crashes when autofilling a number field and the source field is empty. CR68354 The Title Resource ID attribute is filled in with the value of the Title attribute when editing a Field element in the Display Fields property editor of the qListView. CR72970 The Manage Permissions and Check In/Out buttons should not appear in the qListForm (in DisplayListItem mode) when the user does not have permission to carry out those operations. CR41293 The qListView displays the plain text multi line text field in one line eventhough the entry contains line break in it. CR72369 The qListForm does not display the People and Group fields according to the field setting when the People and Group field is auto filled. The People and Group field is always displayed by the user name eventhough the field is set to be displayed with another field, e.g.: Phone Number. CR72531 The qListForm will use the ID of the looked up item instead of the text when you refer to a lookup field in the CalculatedFormat field. CR72654 The qCalendarView does not show the last day of the appointment if the end date is a DateTime field with DateOnly format. CR72969 The CAML Filter for Folders property does not support dynamic value, e.g.: value taken from HTTP parameter. CR71451 The alert email only sends partial information about the list item to the user CR70865 The CAML filter editor should use the output field type instead of Calculated when constructing CAML filter for Calculated field. CR69904 Some of the operator in the CAML Filter editor is not grammatically correct. For example, “Equals To” should say “Equal To”. CR68250 The Include Sub Folders checkbox in the qListView’s filter panel should be checked by default. CR65797 The Rich Text Editor control in the qListForm cannot use a custom skin name. CR70009 The qListForm does not display the Attachment field when the Form Type property is set to DisplayListItem. CR70691 The ShowValues in the Chart Attributes property does not work. The qChartView and qSIChartView still shows the values in the chart even though this attribute is set to false already. CR70773 The DateTime field value that is modified in the custom action is not persisted by the qListForm. CR71489 The qChartView does not copy the HTTP parameter of the current URL into the drill down chart URL when the user clicks the chart to drill down. This causes problem when drilling down more than 1 level. CR71723 The qListForm auto fill the field with ID1;#Value1;#ID2;#Value2 if the source field is a multi value lookup field. The value should be presented as Value1;Value2 instead. CR71964 qListView experiences performance issue when displaying data from a big document library and the Type and Edit column are displayed. CR72483 The chart view crashes when the value that is used in the X axis contains ‘ in it. CR71642 The qListView shows empty value in a Yes/No field as “Yes”. CR71489 The qChartView does not include the other HTTP Parameters in the URL when drilling down. This is an issue when you drill down 2 level deep because at the second drill down, you lose the context of the drill down at the first level. CR71451 The alert email only sends partial information about the list item to the user when the item was created using qListForm. CR69274 The Web Part crashed if the user invokes “Modify Shared WebPart” in the Web Part Menu. CR70253 The qChartView generates an error when a People and Group field is used in X Axis. CR70203 When auto filling a single line of text field using a lookup field, the qListForm uses ID;#Title format instead of just the plain title of the selected item in the lookup field. CR70218 The qListView does not sort the group header correctly if it is a lookup field. CR70114 The qChartView and qSIChartView displays 0 if a certain data point in the chart does not have any data in the list or in the external system. In case of no data, the qChartView and qSIChartView should not display any data plot at all for that particular data point. CR70214 The qChartView crashes when the anchorSides attribute is defined in the Chart Attributes property. CR69481 The list view does not rollup list item from subsites two levels down with item level permission granted. CR69571 The chart view does not handle mulitple lists when worked in List View Link Mode. CR65797 The Rich Text Editor cannot take the custom skin name CR69877 The 64 bit installer failed to add solution package to SharePoint store with null reference error.
