Bug report #12823

Relative paths are broken in QGIS master and QGIS 2.8 nightly

Added by Andreas Neumann over 6 years ago. Updated almost 6 years ago.

Status:Closed
Priority:Severe/Regression
Assignee:Jürgen Fischer

Description

Project files with relative paths to raster files that are created in QGIS 2.6 or QGIS 2.8.2 cannot be opened in QGIS master or QGIS 2.8 nightly.

Furthermore, project files that are created with QGIS master and QGIS 2.8 nightly do not store file references to raster images as relative paths, but as absolute paths.

QGIS 2.8.2 is not affected - so it must be a commit in between the release of QGIS 2.8.2 and now. Perhaps it is 1e08bc0

This is a very serious bug that absolutely must be fixed before the release.
