API improvements:

  • Added logged user URL in /info call so you can see who the logged person is for API key you are using.
  • Added type to all project objects in the system. This is especially important when you list objects of mixed type.
  • Added /project/#project_id/user-tasks call that lists all tasks currently logged user can work on in a particular project

  • This is configurable - to force refresh session ID on every request put define('ALWAYS_CHANGE_SESSION_ID', true); into config/config.php
